The blessing ceremony for His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Malik and Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Raabi’atul ‘Adawiyyah Pengiran Hj Bolkiah was held at the Royal Brunei Polo and Riding Club in Jerudong.
They were greeted by YAM Pengiran Indera Setia Diraja Sahibul Karib Pengiran Anak Haji Idris Pengiran Maharaja Lela Pengiran Muda Abdul Kahar, Deputy Chairman 1 of YSHHB Committee of Governors; Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Dato Seri Setia Hj Abdul Rahman Hj Ibrahim, the Acting Chairman of the YSHHB Board of Directors and his spouse as well as YB Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Hj Awang Abu Bakar Hj Apong, Deputy Chairman 2 of the YSHHB Board of Directors and his spouse, according to the YSHHB’s press statement.

HRH Prince ‘Abdul Malik in his capacity as the Chairman of the YSHHB Committee of Governors signed a plaque on his arrival before proceeding to the Royal Berkshire Hall followed by YAM Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Raabi’atul ‘Adawiyyah who also signed a plaque.
Pehin Orang Kaya Paduka Seri Utama Dato Paduka Seri Setia Hj Salim Hj Besar led the recital of theSurah Al-Fatihah.
In his welcoming remark, YB Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Dato Seri Setia Awang Hj Abdul Rahman Hj Rahim, who is also the Minister of Finance Two at the Prime Minister’s Office, prayed that the royal couple have a happy married life.
YB Pehin Dato Seri Setia Hj Abdul Rahman presented a pesambah (royal gift) in a form of Mushaf Al-Quran called Mushaf Al-Sharif.
YB Pehin Dato Seri Setia Hj Abdul Rahman said the Mushaf Al-Sharif, which was printed by the Islamic Cooperation Research Centre for Islamic History, Art and Culture in Istanbul Turkey, was specifically manufactured based on the original copy of the Quran that has been copied and published during the caliphate of Sayyidina Uthman ‘Affan (r a). He went on to say that among several copies of the Quran during that time, it was believed that there were only two original copies of the Quran left and stored in the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul and Tashkent Museum in Uzbekistan.
“This Mushaf Al-Sharif which I presented is in fact a facsimile copy of the original Al-Quran stored in Topkapi Museum (one of the ancient manuscript of Al-Quran in the world),” said YB Pehin Dato Seri Setia Hj Abdul Rahman.
The sounds of the recitation of Dikir Marhaban by a group of 30 students filled the hall when thepesambah was presented to the royal couple.
The ceremony was concluded with a Doa Selamat (thanksgiving prayer) by Pehin Orang Kaya Paduka Seri Utama Dato Paduka Seri Setia Hj Salim.
The royal couple greeted the guests and staff from the YSHHB at the end of the ceremony.
