Abstract

The understanding of a ‘country devoted to God’ (Negara Zikir) in this study touches in five important aspects, such as knowledge, commanding the good and forbidding the evil (amar ma'ruf nahi munkar), as well as developing and protecting a country. Negara Zikir is a conceptual thought that aims to make Brunei Darussalam a developed nation oriented towards building memorable relations and human compliance with the blessings of the Creator based on Islamic governance, economics, and other aspects. The purpose of this study was to examine the level of understanding by the staff of the Ministry of Religious Affairs (KHEU) regarding the implementation of the Negara Zikir concept. This was a descriptive study that used questionnaires, which were distributed to 390 respondents who selected through the random sampling method. The descriptively analysis applied statistical methods that involved mean and standard deviation values. Overall, this study found that the respondents’ level of understanding was high. It is hoped that this study would be a reference for civil servants in Brunei in line with the wishes of His Royal Highness the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam who urged civil servants to become as the prime movers of Negara Zikir.
