Brunei Darussalam ushers in the new year of 1440 Hijrah with His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam calling on Muslims to take lessons from the History of the Hijrah or Migration to avoid disunity or division among them.

In the Titah in conjunction with the new Hijrah Year which was broadcast to the nation by Radio Television Brunei earlier in the evening, the Monarch believes if Muslims are willing to learn from the History of the Hijrah and take lessons from it, it is possible that the lost glory of Islam will return to the Muslims. On condition, His Majesty stresses, that all leaders and their followers must emulate the Prophet's leadership and the way of the Prophet's followers. When this is accomplished, there will be strength. His Majesty then adds, that strength is not limited to physical strength but should come from Allah the Almighty and by the Grace of the Most Sublime.
