Youths Who Eat In Public During Fasting Will Be Dealt With – Kano Hisbah
The Kano State Hisbah Board has deployed personnel to mosques to ensure the safety of lives and property during the Holy month of Ramadan.
This is contained in a statement by the board’s spokesman Ibrahim Lawan, on Thursday in Kano.
The commander-general of the board, Harun Ibn-Sina, said “Hisbah corps will visit mosques during Iftar, Tarawih, and Tahajjud prayers to protect worshippers and their property from unpatriotic elements. Those who engage in societal vices during this sacred month will be dealt with. Some of the youths who eat in public during the fasting period will not be spared either.”
Mr Ibn-Sina called on the general public to assist orphans and the needy in a bid to give succour to their suffering.
He said feeding others during the Holy Month was rewarding as Allah (SWT), ‘’opens the doors of paradise, as such, there was the need to multiply good deeds to gain Allah’s favour.’’
Mr Ibn-Sina said that clothing, food items, grains, water and cash could also be given to those in need.
The Sultan of Sokoto and President of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, Mohammed Abubakar III, in a broadcast on Wednesday night, announced the start of fasting on Thursday.
