Some 2,000 Musafir Guide Books for Haj pilgrims were distributed by Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) to local travel agencies earlier today.
The sixth-edition guide books were distributed to Darussalam Holdings, Straits Central Agencies (B), Raudah Al-Amin and At-Taqwa Travel and Tours to help prepare Haj pilgrims for their spiritual journey this year.
The 36-page books contain the guidance and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) on Haj etiquettes and self-conduct before, during and after pilgrimage prayers, among others.
The guide books were published by BIBD in collaboration with the Islamic Da’wah Centre (PDI) as part of the bank’s efforts in supporting His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s vision towards achieving a Zikir Nation and Baldatun Thayyibatun Wa Rabbun Ghafur (a blessed and prosperous country).
The books were handed over this morning by BIBD’s Head of Government Relations and Special Projects Hj Mohammad Yusri Hj Wahsahfelah to the Acting Director of PDI, Ustaz Hj Abdul Rajid Hj Mohd Salleh.
The acting director then gave the guide books to representatives of the travel agencies in a ceremony held at Brunei Hotel in the capital.
