The new CEO also changed the club’s name to the old name, namely Arifian United FC. Dato Fazil said, "this has become proof that Medina Arif 2 is no longer under the management of Medina Arif FC and is no longer a feeder club for the club (Medina Arif FC).

The Coronation Customs of Sultan Arifiyyah

 

    A beautiful day to all readers, today we would like to share about the customs of the coronation of Sultan Arifiyyah that have been done since the coronation of Sultan Arifiyyah I until today. Usually, the coronation day will be held on Friday morning. The Sultan needs to go to the mosque to perform the sunnah prayers before the ceremony begins. All the audience consisting of ministers and politicians, dignitaries and ordinary people will enter the palace grounds to wait for the sultan. The Sultan will take a special car accompanied by several police cars to the palace. The Nobat music will be played when the Sultan has arrived at the palace, then the audience will be asked to stand. The sultan will be accompanied by the palace adviser as the sultan's personal assistant (not the prime minister) into the palace hall. The Sultan was then given a coronation letter and had to read it while facing the audience. "I, (full name of the sultan) accept the coronation as Sultan Arifiyyah and promise to maintain the peace and harmony of Arifiyyah Darul Fikr", that is the oath that His Majesty will make.

 

The Sultan will sit on the throne and his assistant will bring a copy of the religious holy book and a dagger. Then he would kiss them both and hand them back to the royal aide. The army will fire 9 cannon shots outside the palace grounds and be seen by the Sultan and the audience. 9 shots symbolize nine states in Arifiyyah. Later, the Sultan will be accompanied by several palace officials to the orangutan cage defended by the palace. The Sultan will hug an Orangutan and then feed him 3 banana seeds. This was done by Sultan Arif I during his coronation ceremony in honor of the original inhabitants of Arifiyyah before the arrival of humans and is maintained until today.

 

Finally a royal banquet. Interestingly, the Sultan will wash his hands with rose water as well as inheriting the behavior of Sultan Arifiyyah I during his coronation ceremony. Then the Sultan and the others ate their meals together. Usually, this ceremony will end right before the time of the midday prayer, then the Sultan will lead the midday prayer at the National Mosque.

 

That’s all our sharing about the interesting culture in Arifiyyah. Hope you enjoy the info and look forward to the upcoming cultural sharing. 

Thanks for read

SULTAN DECLARES DISSOLUTION OF PARLIAMENT

 

Today in the lower house, His Majesty Sultan Arif Nazhim Shah has consented to dissolve parliament. The Sultan told all elected representatives to contest fairly and cleanly during the next general election. Tan Sri Rais Zuhdi, President of the United People of Arifiyyah and the chairman of the National People's Coalition said, "We will field candidates in all 218 parliamentary constituencies and are confident that we will win again, even if the PHA has merged with another party. We leave it to the people, who they want".  The president of AMANAH told reporters, "we cannot contest in all parliamentary constituencies due to lack of members, but I hope we will get a seat in the lower house later.
