In this history of Dol Said there are several lessons that we can take to make the scale for our attitude and practice in daily life.
The first lesson is solidarity, solidarity is the unity (as of a group or class) that produces or is based on community of interests, objectives, and standards. In simple societies it may be mainly based around kinship and shared values to others. Solidarity is in important because as the citizens we need to unite to prevent our own country from being colonized. We do not want that other history recurrence, so that we need to start built our spirit of unity from now.

This picture shows that we need to unity to protect our own country

The next lesson is fight for our right. Fight for our right is like we the citizen try to fight our right in our own country. For example, During the Dol Said conflict, the citizen in the Naning need to fight for their right not to betray their own hero that try to protect them from being colonized.

Freedom is we have the power to speak, act, and think as one wants. Of course in our own country we want to have our own freedom in order to develop our country in line with the global. If we are being colonized with the other country how can we develop our country? So starting from now, let us protect our country from being colonized for the second time.

Because of the three factors of the resistance, both parties which are British and Nanings shows their firmness by first Naning war in 1831 and second Naning war in 1832. For both war, there are different sequences and tactics that using by Dol Said Pahlawan Nanings.

First Naning war in 1831, Dol Said rebel towards British. Then, British make decision send 150 soldiers on July 15, 1831 that lead by Captain Willey to attack Naning but British failed. On the other hand, the successful of Dol Said is because of the several factors. Naning successfully defended their district from being colonial by British using itself-guerilla tactics. Besides that, Dol Said get the support from Malays allies which are includes Seri Menanti, Sungai Ujong, Johol and Muar. Dol Said also get help from relief team led by law Yamtuan Raja Muda of Syed Ali Rembau Sha'aban. From this incident, British relies that Naning hard to beat. So that, British negotiate with Yamtuan Raja Muda Ali and he agree to help British by send 600 troops to attack Naning. But unfortunately, because of Dol Said’s wisdom and efficiently in war, they won from British attack.

There are three (3) factors that make “Dol Said Pahlawan Naning” resistance:-

First resistance is Dol Said wants to defend the Naning’s independence this is because British interfering in political and administrative affairs of the state. For the proven in 1824, British and Belanda have signed an agreement that called as “Perjanjian Inggeris-Belanda” and according to the agreement Malacca was handed over to the British by Belanda. Then, British were claims that Naning was a part from Malacca so that British ordered Naning follow the rules and regulations that have been set in Malacca. From this kind of claims, of course the warriors of Naning which is Dol Said cannot acceptance it and Nanings’ residents because Naning is not a part of Malacca.
Second resistance is British forces in Nanings by using “Undang-undang British.  According from this force, British have introduced the regulations of headman that could threaten Dol Said position at that time as headman of Nanings. The enactment that has been appointed by British has blocked the headman (Dol Said) against the criminal case. But, in 1828 Dol Said has been warned by British because he resolves the criminal case in Naning. Causes from this incident, he have been threatened to stripped his position if defying the British. 

The pieces of "Undang-Undang British"

Third resistance is because of British’s Taxation policy. Dol Said was unsatisfied with the taxation policy that has been set by British. This is because through the 1830s’ law, British impel Naning to pay the taxation 1/10 from their agricultural. Then from this taxation policy British get $4500 us dollars a month from the Nanings agricultural. British daring to ask for the taxation because Naning gives to the Belanda once, however Naning explained that the provision is only sign of friendship with Belanda.
