Ramadan: Islamic Police, Hisbah Warns Non-Muslims In Kano Against Eating In Public Places During Ramadan

The Kano State Hisbah Board Department of Public Enlightenment has cautioned non-Muslim residents of the state against consuming food in public spaces during the Ramadan fasting period.

The Director-General of the Board, Abba Sai’Idu disclosed this in a chat with AIT live, adding 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.

Recall that the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Alhaji Muhammad Sa'ad Abubakar, announced Monday, March 11, 2024, as 1st Ramadan 1445AH and thus declared the commencement of fasting in the holy month in the country.

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.
