The power of Dikir

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 invites the Muslim Ummah to continue enlivening the country with Selawat, as the monarch sees the impact of reciting Selawat is still relevant and in fact important with the world still facing various trials and challenges.

His Majesty likens the glorification of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Maulud celebration as a manifestation of love for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), even though the Muslim Ummah has never met the Prophet (pbuh).

In a titah delivered last night over Radio Television Brunei (RTB) to mark the Maulidur Rasul celebration for 1444 Hijrah, the monarch said one of the significant practices in the Brunei community when ushering the month of Rabiulawal is the gathering to recite Dikir for 12 consecutive nights.
