The Commander General of the Agency, Sheikh Dr. Harun Muhammad Sani Ibn Sina made the disclosure while recieving the first shari’a Judge posted to Hisbah at the Board’s headquarter, Sharada Kano.
According to him, Allah (SWT) had made it possible for Hisbah to have a Judge to mediate on cases after a long period of time.
