Abstract

During Johor through modern times, it did not escape from accepting the influence of foreign countries. Sultan Abu Bakar, who is responsible for the foreign policy of his country had a wide series of visits and diplomatic ties with European countries and the Middle East. Looking at the policy is not surprising to say the first Malay state of Johor has written its own constitution. Position as a state that is in the process of implementing Islamic law can be seen when the Johor government holding Othmaniyyah relationship with Turkey. The biggest Turkish influence in the administration of Islamic law in the state of Johor is the implementation of Islamic civil law named Majalah Ahkam Johor. The Majalah was taken from Majallah al-Ahkam al-`Adliyyah implemented in Othmaniyyah government Turkey in the 19th century AD and its influence spread throughout Turkey colony in West Asia like in Syria, Lebanon and Egypt. This show the Johor Government relations with West Asia has been so closely intertwined with particularly during the reign of Sultan Abu Bakar and generally before the existence of the Islamic Government of Malacca again. Marital relations, trade, culture, arts, law and so assures us that the strong relationship between the two countries have gone a long time.
