The country's citizens and residents are very fortunate to have a Monarch or ruler who strives to provide amenities and other assistance to ensure the people's standard of living is always good and comfortable. Yesterday's Khutbah Jum'at or Friday Sermon titled, "The Monarch's Leadership Strengthens the Foundation and Policies of Islam," calls on the people to be grateful that the country practises the Malay Islamic Monarchy concept. This means Brunei Darussalam is a Malay monarchy that practises the noble values of the Malays with the guidance of Islamic teachings.
In the Khutbah or sermon, the prayer leader praised and thanked Allah Subhanahu Wataala that under the leadership of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, the country is well known as a peaceful, prosperous, beautiful, modern and civilised nation. The people are united and live in happiness and harmony. All these, add the prayer leader, are achieved by the Grace of Allah that inspires the loving and caring Monarch to always enhance the foundation and policies of Islam in Brunei Darussalam. This is achieved by giving priority to Islam's teachings and the laws of Allah befitting Islam's status as the official religion of Brunei Darussalam. The prayer leader said the source of religious strength in the country is the result of the Monarch's leadership which relentlessly ensures and implements the laws in a just way that no one is mistreated or oppressed because the rights of each individual is always protected, safeguarded, respected and fulfilled.
