Sheikh Ibn Sina, who doubles as the Commander General of the state Hisbah Board, stated this at an occasion to mark the conversion of 196 pagans at Africa House, Government House, Kano recently.

It was an occasion graced by the state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who used the opportunity to enjoin the converted ones to hold fast to the religion, describing Islam as the true religion of Allah.

He preached to them that the religion is for peace and good relation among people regardless of their ethnic background.

The governor urged them to fear their Creator, adding that they should not indulge in vices or illicit practices as in fornication, like adultery, taking alcohol and anything intoxicant.

He urged them also to avoid telling lies, mistrust, theft and anything prohibited by Islam.

Earlier speaking, the Director General of the foundation, Sheikh Ibn Sina, said since its inception, the foundation has been performing such functions, saying that it has excelled in rendering support and proper guidance to such category of people who used to embrace the religion through it.

On his part, the chairman of the state Pilgrims Welfare Board, Prof. Abdullahi Pakistan, expressed delight with the event, hoping that other governors and wealthy individuals in the nation would emulate the good gesture from Governor Ganduje, saying that doing so would augur well for the religion.

The state Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Dr. Zahrau Muhammad Umar noted that those converted need support of the Ummah, while the Special Adviser to the Governor on Religious Affairs, Alhaji Ali Baba Agamalafiya noted that Governor Ganduje inculcated the spirit of serving the religion since childhood.
