Cika-Ciki
« on: March 09, 2003, 01:51:26 AM »
Assalamu Alaikum
I am really a bit confused why the forum is getting more flared up with politics. That is why I am posting this.
Bansan ko mutane are familiar with Cika ciki ba.
Cika ciki is usually celebrated on Muharram (10th ?? not really sure what day. Anyone?).
( For those who do not understand Hausa, Cika Ciki roughly means "filing the stomach-with food"). People are supposed to eat to the brim and pray, although one could argue people nowadays eat only. Many people celebrate it differently. For example, in Kano, I notice they celebrate cika ciki by cooking jelar saniya and other ragadada, they stored from salah Babba.
In katsina, where food is not taken for granted, they eat tuwon ruwa after salar magarba and afterward finish it up with the much famed hura da nono.
In Bauchi, I learnt, people eat the famous food made in Bauchi- MASA. ?They eat masa with miyar taushe and tantakwashi and ofcourse, man shanu.
If you celebrate cika ciki or you know any delicious foods consumed during this holiday, please share it with us.
I for one would like to eat tuwon Bula this year.
Bissalam

Nice one Ameen, yeah, sometimes that political issues bores me to death, and when ppl converse about it..its so funny they way these ppl argue & argue but @ d end sai ace nima that was wat I was tlkin about...basically arguein on d same point. ::)

An mata der abincin fulde, or mayb its like a wash down: Mardo!!!. TUWO MIYAN KUKarrrr is d bestest of who agreez. I dunno wat cika ciki means, but I du get it from d xplanation up there! So dole ne mutum ya cika ciki whether u dont feel like eatin? Eniwez...........4 those that wanna stuff their bellies, get a bowl of ice-cubes or ice-block..though it is not food but boi!!!! I enjoy drinkin them..that wat I like eatin :-/

Tuwo miyan kuka is heavy!!!

[colo=blue]Am a lil bit confused here..............So let me get this straight...Ameen pointed out that Ceek-ceek(or least I 4get I gave cika-cika a lil nick name) He said that ceek ceek is a celebration after fasting, &

Borg u said its a celebration after Sallah......so which is which? Plz specify? :-/

Borg trust me tuwon miyan kika is the bestest!!!!!!!!(she laffs)[/color]

Ummita, tuwo da miyan kuka is a classic ai, ba wasa da wannan especially with a little touch of man shanu, there is one santi i will never forget da wani aboki na ya yi when he was eating towo da miyan kuka.... we were in the middle of eating fa, from nowhere this guy just looked up at the ceiling and said '... Mansur (another friend that was there), ba irin wanna ceiling din ne a cafeteria din kaduna polythechnic ba?', men, mun sha dariya ranar and till this day we call the guy "santman".

As for the time when cika-ciki is held i'll have to find out for sure, but i know it is sometime after Babar Sallah. And if i remember well, Amin, is it not the one that pple play with fire, throwing lighted sticks and so on... the saying used to go that if you dont fill your tummy with food it will be filled with fire for you..... oho, i may be mixing things up, seem like a very long time since i even heard the work cika ciki.

You are probably rite, i know m a 'man shanu' freak, i even eat it with bread. Talking about hausa sweets, there is one we used to eat a very long time at the local islamiyya rite in the middle of the Kano city (cikin birni)... it was called 'hanjin ligidi', now that was something.... considering the time that has passed and i still remember it, but now i begin to wonder who ligidi was that we really enjoyed his/her/its intestines? :)

Ummita kina da abun dariya wani locacin lol ;D!!! I dont know if anyone here knows it, it is actually a sugar sweet thingy, i have no idea how it is made, kawai na san sunnan shi hanjin ligidi, it is nobody's intestines, its just the name they gave it, probably because it comes in strands. Kai kai this is so hilarious, i am still laughing..... "Borg the savage".

THIS IS A REMINDER TO ALL MUSLIMS !!!!!!

Itis very desirable to fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram that s on the eve of cika-ciki and the cika-ciki. You may check Sahih Buhari and Muslim on line on www.fatwa-online.com or on www.jannah.com.

Happy Cika-ciki and plese remeber the talakawas help them cika their ciki too especialy members in Nigeria. Also help pass this to non-forum members. Sakhallahu khairan.
