The Personal Gifts of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam to the specific groups are to alleviate their burden and enable them to share the joy of Hari Raya. For the recipients no words can describe their gratitude to Allah the Almighty for the blessings and rewards bestowed upon Brunei Darussalam. One of Allah’s greatest blessings to the country is a Monarch who loves and cares deeply for the people.
The specially provided shuttle transport which ferried the recipients to Istana Nurul Iman helped in the smooth running of the bestowment of His Majesty’s Personal Gifts. The recipients registered themselves, bringing along documents such as their smart identity cards and birth certificates.
They were then given special identity passes according to the respective categories. To facilitate the process of converting the coupons into cash, a number of Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Berhad, BIBD counters were made available to the recipients. Before leaving Istana Nurul Iman, the recipients of the Personal Gifts of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam were also given souvenirs.
