From:  His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan, Brunei Darussalam
To:  His Highness Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Amir, The State of Kuwait

Your Highness,

ASSALAMU'ALAIKUM WARAHMATULLAAHI WABARAKAATUH

INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILLAIHI RAJI'UUN

I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. The Government and the people of Brunei Darussalam join me and members of my family in mourning his loss and in offering our heartfelt condolences and prayers to Your Highness and to all members of the Royal Family and the people of Kuwait, at this time of sorrow. 

I fondly remember His Highness the late Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad  Al-JabeAl-Sabah when he made a state visit to Brunei Darusslam in 2016 and my own state visits to the State of Kuwait. I very much appreciated the warm and kind hospitality that His Highness the late Amir generously extended to me during those visits.  
 
His Highness the late Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah was a respected leader and his passing is a great loss not only to Kuwait, but also in the Muslim World. His Highness the late Amir will be long remembered for his legacy of wise leadership and strong advocacy for peace, stability and unity.

Allow me to also take this opportunity to convey my warmest congratulations on Your Highness' appointment as the Amir of the State of Kuwait.  I wish Your Highness much success and assure you that Brunei Darussalam will continue to cherish our ties of friendship and extend our cooperation with the brotherly State of Kuwait.

May Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala grant His Highness the late Amir Jannatul Firdous and embrace him among His blessed ones. Amin Ya Rabbal 'Alamin.

Please accept my deepest condolences. 

WASSALAMU'ALAIKUM WARAHMATULLAAHI WABARAKAATUH



SULTAN HAJI HASSANAL BOLKIAH
OF BRUNEI
