In a titah to mark the launch, His Majesty expressed gratitude for the enduring Bruneian tradition of seeking solace through Istiqamah, especially in the face of challenges and calamities adhering to religious standard operating procedures (SOP) practices.

His Majesty also highlighted the deep-rooted customs inherited over many years, and emphasised the significance of intensifying the recitation of Al-Quran, Zikir, Surah Yaasin, Selawat in praise of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Sunat Hajat prayers, Qunut Nazilah, Ratib Al-Attas, and the continuous observance of Munajat nights.

Munajat, viewed as a means of closeness and a path to repentance, is considered a vital Wasilah in the nation’s repentance practices. His Majesty further encouraged the Ummah to draw nearer to Allah the Almighty, seeking His blessings and divine guidance in challenging times.

Accompanying Their Majesties to the ceremony were His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Her Royal Highness Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Sarah binti Pengiran Haji Salleh Ab Rahaman; His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Malik and Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Raabi’atul Adawiyyah binti Pengiran Haji Bolkiah and His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Mateen.
