His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam called on parties who are given the responsibility to handle educational affairs, not to neglect the prayer obligation.
“This is the basic obligation in addition to existing duties,” said the monarch in a titah last night to mark the Israk Mikraj celebration for 1443 Hijrah.
His Majesty said no one can run away from this responsibility.
“Educators, parents and even the government must be equally responsible to ensure that worship is truly embraced, to obtain blessings for all of us and Brunei Darussalam,” the monarch said. “Israk Mikraj is an extraordinary event that happened to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). For the faithful, such an event is not seen with common sense or logic but with faith towards Allah the Almighty,” he said.
