When it comes to celebrating Prophet Mohammads' Birthday (peace be upon him), or better known in Brunei as Maulud Nabi, students who turn up are usually forced to attend because of parents or school ruling. Most would decide not to make the effort of waking up early and just enjoy an extra day of holiday.
For SOAS COLLEGE AIR SCOUT, it is a honor to attend. Not only for celebrating our beloved Prophet Mohammad's Birthday but we also give a helping for the community. Officials who are always on duty during such event, comment on the yearly-commitment of Maktab SOAS Scouts who are always visible during Maulud Nabi.
The Minister of Religious Affairs gave a speech on the processions, held simultaneously in all the four districts of the country, would encourage younger generation to continue the unique and traditional way of celebrating Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) birthday for years to come. His Majesty the Sultan then lead the procession as he always would followed by loyal citizens and followers of Islam.
