I just received a letter from my company stating they will be rewarding me with so and so amount of money as my bonus. Within the letter it did not say that they have any rights to pull back the bonus if i were to resign or did not say they have any rights to pull it back. Also i check my employment letter no such statement as well.

So i am about to resign from my company, do they have the rights to pull back the bonus?

The best advise is to get the bonus first and then resign. Because if they for some reason stop your bonus once you tender your resignation even though it is not stated in the "bonus" letter or your letter of employment, practically you will have to sue them to recover the money and as such you would incur additional costs.
