In conjuction with the upcoming 1431 Israk Mikraj celebrations, the State Mufti Department under the Prime Minister’s Office yesterday released a new book entitled ‘Isra’ Mi’Raj Satu Mu’Jizat’.
Officiating the publication was the guest of honour, Pehin Orang Kaya Paduka Setia Raja Dato Paduka Seri Setia Haji Awang Suhaili bin Haji Mohidin, Deputy State Mufti.
The 49-paged book is written by the State Mufti, Pehin Datu Seri Maharaja Dato Paduka Seri Setia Dr Ustaz Hj Awg Abdul Aziz Juned and is based on a talk presented by him at the Istana Nurul Iman in conjunction with Israk Mikraj celebrations previously held in 2008.
In the book, the State Mufti highlights the importance of recalling historic events during Israk and Mikraj, which comes from Allah the Almighty, not like any other ordinary story written in fictional novels or story books.
It also includes the teachings and lessons of the Islamic way of life in relation to one of the important dates on the Islamic calendar. Stories told will touch the hearts of many and aim to create and raise awareness on the true appreciation of Israk Mikraj.
Apart from the book, a DVD release was also held at a special price of $6 per set. Members of the public who are interested in owning the limited edition package can visit the State Mufti Department, Darulifta Brunei Darussalam, Simpang 26, Jalan Pengiran Babu Raja, Bandar Seri Begawan.
