Taib discusses the characteristics of the contents of Malay folk beliefs. Besides Islam, which is the professed religion of the Malays, the folks in the kampung (village) still subscribe to the belief elements which they have inherited from their distant past. The author argues that these different elements which are derived from the animistic and Hindu-Buddhistic period of the Malay history may seem to be disparate, but they are well-integrated in the worldview of the Malay folk beliefs.
