CHAIRMAN’S REPORT YEARS 1428/29 AH
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Praise be to Allah SWT, and prayers and peace be upon the messenger of Allah, his family, his companions and those who follow his guidance. Out of the five pillars of Islam, Zakkat is the socio- financial one. By performing Zakat, along with Tawhid [Belief in the oneness of Allah] and establishing payers, a person becomes a Muslim.
As a member of the Muslim community, he or she deserves the brotherhood and allegiance of Muslims, as indicated by the Qur’anic verse [But if they turn in repentance and established prayer and pay Zakkat, they are your brothers in the deen]. [9:11].
Even though Zakkat is usually mentioned with the acts of worship of Islam, such as prayers it is in fact a part of socio-economic system of Islam. For that reason it is always difficult to administer.
In our case, our gratitude goes especially to the District heads, Village heads, Ward heads, and of course the various committees at all level that make our focus possible, from year to year. 
Alhamdu lillah – we have recorded tremendous growth year by year as more and more people realize the importance of paying Zakkat as 
an obligation to all Muslims that possess Nisab, over a one year period. [N156,000 this year ] .
As a confirmed obligation from Allah SWA Zakkat is not merely charity left to individuals to implement nor is it fulfillment dependent on the benevolence of the wealthy. Zakkat is rather a social welfare institution supervised by the state and an organized tax administration {the emirate council} 
The state” role  in the collection and distributions  Zakkat is best  supported  by  ayat  that mention  those who collect  Zakkat   [9:60]  as one  of the  categorist to whom Zakkat is  distributed..  This  ayat is  explicit  evidence  that  there  should  be  a specialized body which  workers   who derive  their  incomes from   the work   they  do.  Moreover,  Allah   SWA says  “Take sadqa  from their wealth  to  purify and clense  them” [9:103], 
As for the Sunnah,  there  are  hadiths  that  confirm that  administration of Zakkat  is one of the  responsibilities  of the Islamic  state , May Allah increase the wealth  of all  you that paid their Zakkat  as  and when due.  Ameen.

Being  the custodian of religion and culture, the  emirate council customarily organizes festivities and ceremonies to mark special occasions. The ceremonies elegantly and adorably display the best of our proud Heritage. Among the special occasions that are being marked include the two Islamic Eid-fitir and Eid-Adha. They  are  marked  with 3 day of 
Hawan Sallah, 
Hawan Bariki, 
Hawan Shuwari 

The ceremonies feature a large procession of more than a  thousand  horsemen dressed in colorful costumes followed by  musicians and dancers in a carnival like atmosphere. The horses are equally decorated with silver and gold ornaments to complement the colors and importance of the rider. The procession is watched by thousands of on lookers lined up in the streets cheering the participants. The evenings are spent watching  various cultural dances  and displays of musical talents, at the Emir’s palace.
There are less colorful but equally important ceremonies that displays the rich cultural and religious heritage of the Emirate such as mini-Durbar, installations  and turbaning ceremonies.

 The purpose of creating this site is as a result of many enquiries from historians and others interested in understanding our history since the creation of Jigawa State of Nigeria. Dutse [Gadawur] was relatively unknown to many people except academics even within the old Kano State. There is little wonder therefore when General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida announced the creation of Jigawa State and Dutse [Gadawur] as its capital city. Many people protested the sighting of the capital at Dutse, while there were at that time more prominent towns such as Hadejia, Gumel and Kazaure in the state.

 

Historical evidences available in our ltratures, shows Dutse [Gadawur] as one of the oldest urban centres within the Old Kano state. It was infact second to Birnin Kano itself. It was inhabited by many ethinic groups long before the 15th centuray, such as the [Fulbe] Genawa, Wangarawa, [Kanuri], and [Hausa] Digawa. Birnin Gija which is a few kilometres north of Dutse Gadawur is well known to historians as one of the oldest trading centres out side Birnin Kano. The conquest of the Saifawa by the el-kanemi and taking over the administration at Birnin Gazargamu futher brought about a large number of Fulbe immigrants to Dutse Gadawur, namely the Jalligawa and Yalligawa clans.
