Kano Man arrested after he stopped going to mosque because his hair was shaved

A young man who allegedly stopped praying after his hair was shaved by operatives of the Kano State Hisbah Board has been arrested.

The young man had in a trending video claimed he stopped praying and going to the mosque after Hisbah operatives shaved off his long hair for being ‘unIslamic’.

This comes days after the Hisbah Commander-in-Chief, Ustaz Harun Muhammad Sani Ibn Sina, vowed to arrest him.

Ibn Sina had in an audio message said the commission was looking for the Kano resident for violating Islamic law.

However on Monday, June 28, the Commander shared photos of the young man he identified as Muhammad Ikbal as he warned him to desist from further immoral act then ordered him to go and do a Nafl prayer and ask God for forgiveness.

A Nafil prayer or supererogatory prayer also known as Nawafil prayers is a type of optional Muslim formal worship. They are not considered obligatory but are thought to confer extra benefit on the person performing them.
