Hisbah: Use of mannequins in Kano remains banned

The Kano State Hisbah Board has insisted that its ban on the use of mannequins in tailors’ shops and boutiques across the state stands.
It, however, exempted mannequins without heads from the ban.

Hisbah, the agency saddled with the responsibility of enforcement of Shariah doctrine in Kano State, had in June 2021 announced a ban on the use of mannequins to display clothes by tailors, supermarkets and boutique owners in the state.
The agency also warned that it would start raiding such places to remove them, describing the use of the mannequins for advert purposes as idolatry.
The Commander-General of the board, Harun Ibn Sina, who announced the ban in the state, said the use of mannequins contravened the provision of Islamic injunctions. But during a meeting with the National Association of Tailors, Kano state chapter on Thursday, Hisbah reiterated the ban.
This is contained in a statement by the information unit of the agency, which was made available to newsmen on Friday.
The statement read in part, “The Kano State Hisbah Board, in accordance with the Act that established it in 2001 (as amended in 2003), has banned the use of any mannequin that resembles human body, male or female.
“However, tailors can use mannequins without heads on them, that one is allowed. This is part of the major issues we discussed with the tailors during our meeting with them.”
Sina then called on tailors in the state to ensure compliance with the directive to avoid clamping down on them, as well as to sanitise their businesses.
