The contents of the books ‘Raja Melakar Sejarah’ and ‘The King Who Shapes History’ only focuses on His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. From the first page until the end, the book’s focus does not change. This is among the special characteristics of the book. According to the author, Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Seri Maharaja Dato Paduka Seri Setia Doktor Ustaz Haji Awang Abdul Aziz bin Juned, the State Mufti, after its launch, the book received an encouraging response.
Yang Berhormat the State Mufti said that they first printed 10 thousand copies with 5 thousand of them in the English version. The main target of the books was the local public and Yang Berhormat Pehin is of the opinion that every person need to own the book. This is because it is about our monarch and as his subjects we need to truly know and understand the monarch.
When asked about the plan to translate the book ‘Raja Melakar Sejarah’ to other languages so that it will have a wider target and at the same time, other races will know about the leadership of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, Yang Berhormat Pehin explained that the need has been realised since early on. This is why the book is printed in two languages, Malay and English.
