However, life must go on. His mother did not want continuing to grieve and doing nothing. His mother chose to work hard and did a lot of jobs every day. However, his family financial had not improved since the money was only to meet their daily needs without being able to be saved.

Seeing his mother continued to work in each time, he did not have the heart and intended to help his mother. He asked his mother to sail and made money as much as possible. At first, his mother was not banned because of fear that Malin did not come back like his father. Nevertheless, he kept pressing until his mother allowed him to go.

He immediately set to sail because it has been allowed by his mother, and his departure was accompanied by his mother’s sobs. On board, he continued to learn and began to know the ins and outs of the ships and commerce.

In one time, he asked for permission to skipper of the vessel and allowed to go home. Malin was very excited and with the whole of crew, he returned to his hometown.

With wealth and a prosperous life, he forgot to return home in order to meet his mother. However, inadvertently Malin had to go to his hometown for commercial affairs. He set off with his wife and children to come back home.

Arrived at his hometown, Malin Kundang met his mother and his mother hugged him very close. However, he even scolded his mother and pushed up a heap. He actually recognized his mother's face, but there is a huge shame because there are crews as well as his wife. In front of them, he did not acknowledge that a woman who fell down was his mother. He even told her that her mother was so despicable and he did not recognize it.

After completing his business, he got out of his hometown. His heart had hardened into stone. With his wife and his children, he went sailing back. His mother was her sad and inwardly, he prayed that Malin changed into stone.

Instantly, the sky became overcast, lightning, and rain was falling. His ship hit rocks and was crashing. Malin bodies swayed to the opposite shore and the magic happened. He slowly turned to stone and it was known as Malin Kundang stone.

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.
