On a recent flight on Royal Brunei Airlines I was intrigued when they began to pray an Islamic prayer in Malay over the intercom system. You will hear it below – even making out the name Allah.
The prayer was in written form on the TV screen in front of each seat. Can you imagine the Our Father officially prayed on a plane? Yet, the Muslims have no hesitancy to pray to Allah and expect everyone else to accept it without question or resistance.
Only 67% of people in Brunei are Muslim, 10% are Christians. But Islam is the countries official religion and therefore the other 33% are subject to the Muslim Prayers and rules in their country and on the plane (like no alcohol).
