14 selected posters are being showcased at the Glory of the Holy Land Exhibition in conjunction with Bandar Seri Begawan, Asian Capital of Islamic Civilisation 2019. The exhibition is to glorify the sanctity of the Holy Land as Allah the Almighty has decreed Makkah Al-Mukarramah as a Holy Land by making the Ka'abah the qiblat or focal point for Muslims and honoured it as the site of sacred revelations to the last Prophet and Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad Salallahu Alaihi Wasalam.
The exhibition was officiated by Yang Berhormat Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Awang Othman, the Minister of Religious Affairs. The exhibition promotes projects to preserve the Holy Land and to provide accurate explanations and information on the Holy Land and the Haj through information technology and social media.
