Teks Lengkap Cerita Malin Kundang dalam Bahasa

Malin Kundang

Once upon a time, on the north coast of Sumatra lived a poor woman and his son. The boy
was called Malin Kundang. They didn’t earn much as fishing was their only source of
income. Malin Kundang grew up as a skillful young boy. He always helps his mother to earn
some money. However, as they were only fisherman’s helper, they still lived in poverty.
“Mother, what if I sail overseas?” asked Malin Kundang one day to his mother. Her mother
didn’t agree but Malin Kundang had made up his mind. “Mother, if I stay here, I’ll always be
a poor man. I want to be a successful person,” urged Malin kundang. His mother wiped her
tears, “If you really want to go, I can’t stop you. I could only pray to God for you to gain
success in life,” said his mother wisely. “But, promise me, you’ll come home.”

In the next morning, Malin Kundang was ready to go. Three days ago, he met one of the
successful ship’s crew. Malin was offered to join him. “Take a good care of yourself, son,”
said Malin Kundang’s mother as she gave him some food supplies. “Yes, Mother,” Malin
Kundang said. “You too have to take a good care of yourself. I’ll keep in touch with you,” he
continued before kissing his mother’s hand. Before Malin stepped onto the ship, Malin’s
mother hugged him tight as if she didn’t want to let him go.

It had been three months since Malin Kundang left his mother. As his mother had predicted
before, he hadn’t contacted her yet. Every morning, she stood on the pier. She wished to see
the ship that brought Malin kundang home. Every day and night, she prayed to the God for
her son’s safety. There was so much prayer that had been said due to her deep love for Malin
Kundang. Even though it’s been a year she had not heard any news from Malin Kundang, she
kept waiting and praying for him.

After several years waiting without any news, Malin Kundang’s mother was suddenly
surprised by the arrival of a big ship in the pier where she usually stood to wait for her son.
When the ship finally pulled over, Malin Kundang’s mother saw a man who looked wealthy
stepping down a ladder along with a beautiful woman. She could not be wrong. Her blurry
eyes still easily recognized him. The man was Malin Kundang, her son.

Malin Kundang’s mother quickly went to see her beloved son. “Malin, you’re back, son!”
said Malin Kundang’s mother and without hesitation, she came running to hug Malin
Kundang, “I miss you so much.” But, Malin Kundang didn’t show any respond. He was
ashamed to admit his own mother in front of his beautiful wife. “You’re not my Mother. I
don’t know you. My mother would never wear such ragged and ugly clothes,” said Malin
Kundang as he release his mother embrace.

Malin Kundang’s mother take a step back, “Malin…You don’t recognize me? I’m your
mother!” she said sadly. Malin Kundang’s face was as cold as ice. “Guard, take this old
women out of here,” Malin Kundang ordered his bodyguard. “Give her some money so she
won’t disturb me again!” Malin Kundang’s mother cried as she was dragged by the
bodyguard, ”Malin… my son. Why do you treat your own mother like this?”

Malin Kundang ignored his mother and ordered the ship crews to set sail. Malin Kundang’s
mother sat alone in the pier. Her heart was so hurt, she cried and cried. “Dear God, if he isn’t
my son, please let him have a save journey. But if he is, I cursed him to become a stone,” she
prayed to the God.

In the quiet sea, suddenly the wind blew so hard and a thunderstorm came. Malin Kundang’s
huge ship was wrecked. He was thrown by the wave out of his ship, and fell on a small
island. Suddenly, his whole body turned into stone. He was punished for not admitting his
own mother.

the child back to me when it is six years old.” Mbok Sirni was so happy; she did not think
about the risk of losing the child later and agreed to take the giant’s offer. The giant then gave
her a bunch of cucumber seeds. “Plant it around your house.” The giant then left without
saying anything else. In the morning, Mbok Sirni planted the seeds. The seeds grew within
mere days, and blossomed plentifully.Not longer after that, a big golden cucumber grew from
plants. Carefully, Mbok Sirni plucked the golden cucumber and carried it home. With caution
and care, she sliced the cucumber. She was very surprised to see a beautiful baby girl inside
the cucumber. She then named the baby Timun Emas (it means Golden Cucumber).

Years passed by and Timun Emas has grew to become a lovely and beautiful little girl. She
was also smart and kind. Mbok Sirni loved her very much. But she kept thinking about the
time the giant would take Timun Emas away from her. One night, Mbok Sirni had a dream.
In order to save Timun Emas from the giant, she had to meet the holy man who lived in
Mount Gundul. The next morning, Mbok Sirni took leave of Timun Emas to go to Mount
Gundul. The holy man then gave her four little bags, each one containing cucumber seeds,
needles, salt, and shrimp paste. “Timun Emas can use these to protect herself,” said the holy
man to Mbok Sirni.

A few days later, the giant came to see Mbok Sirni about her promise. “Mbok Sirni! Where is
Timun Emas?” shouted the giant. “My daughter, take these bag with you. It can save you
from the giant. Now, run through the back door,” said Mbok Sirni. But the giant saw Timun
Emas running to the woods. The giant was angry. Starved and enraged, he rushed toward
Timun Emas. Mbok Sirni tried to stop him, but the giant was unstoppable.

The giant was getting closer and closer, so Timun Emas opened the first bag she got from
Mbok Sirni. Inside the bag were cucumber seeds. She threw the seeds, and instantly they
grew into large cucumber field. But the giant ate them all, giving him more strength. As the
giant was getting close, Timun Emas took the second bag with needles inside and spilled the
content behind her. The needles turned into bamboo trees, sharp and thorny. The giant’s body
was scratched and bled. “Aaargh, I’ll get you, Timun Emas!” shouted the giant as he tried to
get himself out from the bamboo field. He made it and still chasing Timun Emas.

Timun Emas then reached the third bag and spilled the salt inside. The ground which the salt
touched turned into a deep sea. The giant almost drown and had to swim to cross the sea.
After some time, he managed to get out from the water. Timun Emas saw the giant coming,
so she reached for the last bag. She took the shrimp paste and threw it. The shrimp paste
became a big swamp of boiling mud. The giant was trapped in the middle of the swamp. The
mud slowly but surely drowned him. Helpless, he roared out, “Help! Heeeeelp…!” Then the
