Kano Sharia Police, Hisbah

The Kano State Hisbah Board, an agency established to enforce Sharia law in the state, has warned the public, particularly Muslims, against refusal to observe fasting in the month of Ramadan deliberately.

In a WhatsApp audio message sent to media organizations in Kano, the commander general of Hisbah, Haroun Ibn-Sina, said the board would not spare anybody found eating in the daytime without cogent reason.

According to him, the Islamic police would not fold its arms and watch the violating Islamic injunctions in the state, especially in the holy month, during which the Muslims are required to give full of devotion to Allah.

“We are reminding the people of Kano that Hisbah is ever ready to thwart any act of immorality, especially those who flout Islamic Sharia by coming out openly during daytime to eat food, without any reason accepted by Shariah,” he said.
