Hausa Proverbs And Sayings
(Karin Magana)

Proverbs in the Hausa language is rich and plentiful in proverbial and distinction/definition expressions known as Karin Magana.

Proverbs play a big role in Hausa speech. As in every other language, the introduction of a proverb at the right moment can be much more effective in making a point than giving long explanation.

As in English language, the speaker will often refer to a proverb to make his or her point, rather than saying the whole proverb, depending upon the listener to know what he is referring to.
