He was also responsible for informing the then Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Syed Putra Jamalullail that Muslim prisoners were having difficulty praying at the time because they were only allowed to wear white T-shirts and shorts. Abdul Monir, who hails from Mengkarak in Bera, Pahang, was named the recipient of the state Maal Hijrah award for the 1427H/2006 AD Maal Hijrah celebration and won the National Book Award for the best academic research book in 2016.
