Melayu Islam Beraja

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Brunei

Melayu Islam Beraja (Malay Islamic Monarchy, MIB; Jawi: ملايو اسلام براجا) was officially proclaimed as the national philosophy of Brunei (Negara Brunei Darussalam) on the day of its independence on January 1, 1984 by Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzadin Waddaulah.

MIB is described as "a blend of Malay language, culture and Malay customs, the teaching of Islamic laws and values and the monarchy system which must be esteemed and practiced by all". Islam is the official and state religion of Brunei; MIB opposes the concept of secularism.[1]
