Hisbah warns non-Muslims in Kano against eating in public during Ramadan fasting

Wednesday, March 13, 2024 – The Kano State Hisbah Board Department of Public Enlightenment has warned non-Muslims in the state against eating in public places during Ramadan fasting.

The Director-General of the Board, Abba Sai’Idu made this known in a chat with AIT Live.

He said that it is unlawful for Christians and other non-Muslims to eat openly or do anything publicly that would undermine the Islamic religion or put those fasting into temptation by their actions.

The Hisbah Boss further stated that the enforcement team was now conducting more frequent patrols across the city to arrest any Muslim observed engaging in any practice that is not in according with Islamic culture during the holy month.

During the Holy Month of Ramadan, Muslims are expected to abstain from eating, drinking, sex and smoking during the daytime and other acts not allowed by the Holy Quran.

In previous years, the Kano State Hisbah Board have been known to arrest people seen eating during Ramadan.
