Forbidden Acts In Hausa land

Hausa land – To anyone traveling to a foreign country, the maxim “while in Rome, do as the Romans do” applies.

This demonstrates how crucial it is to conduct oneself properly and conform to the customs and laws of a given region.

It can occasionally be frightening to visit a strange and unknown country and observe how things are done there. To more successfully adjust to such places, it helps to be aware of them beforehand.

Never trivialize local culture or customs as a visitor to a new country; doing so could result in harsh penalties, like going to jail or having to pay a hefty fine.

The Hausa people, who make up the majority of Nigeria’s northern population, are Muslims, and as such, several of their taboos have their roots in the Quran. Here are some things to keep in mind if you plan on traveling to any Hausa-speaking regions of Nigeria shortly.

The first is to avoid inappropriate attire. At all times, women are expected to be properly dressed and covered. High levels of religiosity exist in several areas of the country, so it is advisable to dress appropriately covered up to prevent offending anyone.

Then, there is alcoholic beverage consumption. In the north, it is strictly forbidden to drink in public. Government sanctions have been put in place to punish anyone who violates this law.

Alcoholic beverages of any kind cannot be purchased or consumed. Imagine arriving at a Hausa-friendly location and spending the first night in jail. Know the facts.

Consumption of products and meat from the pig. Pork or pig meat as well as other related goods cannot be consumed. According to the Hausa people, the pig is an unclean animal that should not be sold or consumed because it is described as such in the Quran.

Peeing while standing up. In contrast to most places where males are required to stand when peeing, here guys are expected to squat.

They typically urinate in this manner; nevertheless, if a visitor to the country urinates while standing, it may not be illegal and only appear odd to them because it is unusual. Ladies should also avoid peeing in public places.

Men wearing silk and gold come last. Allowing men to wear silk or gold is considered to be against religious doctrine. However, it is encouraged for women to adorn themselves with such expensive items.
