In marking the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), it is appropriate to speak about the Prophet as a means to acquire blessings. There is much to learn about the Prophet’s life, which will serve as a source of enlightenment for Ummah.

State Mufti Pehin Datu Seri Maharaja Dato Paduka Seri Setia (Dr) Ustaz Haji Awang Abdul Aziz bin Juned yesterday highlighted this in a talk over Radio Television Brunei (RTB) to mark Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) birthday.

“Remembering and mentioning Allah the Almighty is fundamental, and the same goes for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). They are equally important as both are inseparable.

“It is intertwined as Kalimah Taibah, which we are obliged to be called in our daily prayer – Kalimah Syahadah (I bear witness that there is no God to be worshipped except Allah the Almighty and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the Messenger of Allah the Almighty). This itself depicts the importance of the Prophet,” the State Mufti said.

He added, “It is crucial for us to understand the story of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), who held pure intentions, unlike ordinary people who tend to anger easily.”

The State Mufti also discussion the importance of showing loyalty to Allah the Almighty and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
