Briefing on the Concept of Halal Food in Islam

Muslims should always believe that the 'hukum' or laws, rules or regulations of Allah the Almighty are the best for mankind. It is a Muslim's obligation to uphold and defend the religion of Allah for the well-being and security of mankind. Those who defend and implement Allah's laws, will be aided by the Almighty. This was stated by the Minister at the Prime Minister's Office in a special speech titled, "Seeking Allah's Acceptance, Promise and Help".

The speech was delivered to the participants of the Informative Community Programme organised by the Information Department, who comprised residents of Kampung Ukong, Kampung Bukit and Kampung Long Mayan in Tutong District this morning. Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohd Daud also emphasised that loyalty to their leaders is part of the Muslims' aqidah or religious faith. Yang Berhormat said when a leader or person of authority says something or gives an order, Muslims are obligated to obey it as long as it does not contradict the rule of Allah the Almighty. And when the leader prohibits something, Muslims are obligated to stop or abandon it.

Yang Berhormat also quoted the titah of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam during the recent National Isra' Mi'raj celebration where His Majesty stressed that the country must always give priority to the worship of Allah. It is guided by Malay Islamic Monarchy, MIB system that has been practised for so long and protects and guarantees the rights of all the country's citizens and residents regardless of race and belief.
