The sharing online (social media) of the bridal shower photos of Zahra Bayero, who is getting married to Yusuf, the President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, has
been forbidden by the Kano State Hisbah Board.
According to the Islamic police, sharing of the photos online by Muslims is a sin.
The wedding Fatiha is scheduled to hold on August 20, as the Emir of Bichi, Nasir Ado-Bayero, had earlier inaugurated a 145-man committee to facilitate a hitch-free ceremony.
Part of the preparations for the wedding Fatiha involved a bridal shower for Zahra, who wore a western-style white gown to the event held on Tuesday in Abuja.
The Kano Commander General of Hisbah, Harun Ibn-Sina, while speaking with BBC Pidgin, said the Emir’s daughter “is not above the law, and failed to set a good example to other Muslims.”
Ibn-Sina forbade people from sharing the photographs and videos from the event, saying it was sinful to do so. On Wednesday, SaharaReporters had reported that Princess Zahra Ado-Bayero appeared in an expensive and western-style dress which elicited mixed reactions from Nigerians in view of her religious background.
Reacting to the pictures, some Nigerians wondered that Zahra’s gown has part of which is made from a transparent material, while others pointed out that she did not have her hair covered as is usually done by Muslim women.
In Kano State, Hisbah Officials have over the years forcefully enforcing its policies, particularly on dressing, on residents of the state irrespective of their religious affiliation.
The agency has banned stylish haircuts, sagging of trousers and playing of music at social events by disk jockeys.
Hisbah also banned commercial motorcycles and tricycle riders from carrying two women at a time.
Of recent, the Kano State Hisbah Board banned the use of mannequins to display clothes by tailors, supermarkets and boutique owners in the state.
Hisbah Commander-in-Chief, Ustaz Harun Muhammad Sani Ibn Sina, had said the use of mannequins by tailors, boutique owners and others contravenes the provision of Islamic injunctions.
A barber and his customers were also arrested recently for giving and having haircuts which were offensive to Islam.
