    Kula gizani ni kula na shetani.
    To eat in the dark is to eat with the devil.
    This belief discourages eating In the dark, for
    obvious reasons.

    Kushona nguo mwilini kunaleta ufukara; tabia
    hii aidha inajongeza kifo, maana inakuwa kama
    mtu anajishonea sanda yake mwenyewe.
    To mend a garment which is on one’s body
    brings poverty: it also suggests preparing
    one’s own shroud, which betokens death.

    Kufagia usiku kunakimbiza baraka
    .
    To sweep at night is to chase away blessings.
    (This belief contains some truth, in that one
    may sweep up and throw away something of
    value unwittingly.)

    Kutembea hali ya kuwa mtu amevaa kiatu
    kimoja tu kunavimbisha ziwa la mama yake
    mtu.

    Walking about with only one shoe on causes
    one’s mother’s breast to swell. (I suppose this
    is simply to discourage the stupidity of going
    about with only one shoe on.)

    Mtu akinywa maji usiku pasi na kuufumka mtu-
    ngi, usiku roho yake itaingia ndani ya mtungi na
    akitokea mtu akaufunika huo mtungi wakati
    huo huo, basi atakufa papo hapo.

    If a man drinks water at night and leaves the
    vessel uncovered, his soul will plunge into it

    during the night, and if someone accidentally
    puts the lid on, he will die at once.

    Mtu akiona. chungu ya wadudu sisimizi ukutani
    basi atafikiwa na wageni wa ghafla.

    If a man sees a swarm of ants on the wall it
    means that unexpected guests will arrive.

    Kwenda kulala pasi na kuosha miguu, basi hiyo
    miguu italazwa katika moto wa Jahannam.

    If one goes to bed without washing one’s feet,
    they will lie In the fires of Hell.

    Mtu akilala pasipo kuosha miguu, nyayo zake
    zitarambwa na shetani.

    If a man goes to bed without washing his feet,
    the soles of his feet will be licked by the devil.

    Mtu akila bila ya kupiga Bismillahi . . basi
    baraka itaondoka na mtu hataweza kushiba.

    If a man eats without saying grace, there will
    be no blessing, so the food will not suffice.
    (This belief has a religious background. Islam
    teaches its followers to allow religion to per-
    meate all their daily acts: and the great
    majority of the population of Zanzibar and
    Pemba are Muslims.)

    Mtoto mchanga akiachwa peke yake, atageuzwa
    na shetani.

    If a baby is left alone in a room it will be
    changed by the devil for his own. at is firmly
    believed that Albinos are ‘changelings’.)

    atakawia kuoa.


    He who develops a habit of sitting on a door-
    step will be late in getting married.

    Kula wima kizingitini, mtu atapigwa dafrau na
    shetani.

    He who eats while standing on the door-step
    will be knocked down by a devil. in tended to
    discourage the habit of eating in such abnormal places.)

    Kula kitu kitamu kinjianjia mtu atasibiwa na shetani.
    He who eats sweet food while walking will be
    possessed of a devil. (It is regarded as bad
    manners to eat while walking.)

    Mwenye kumcheka mkwewe hupata maradhi
    ya chokea.

    He who laughs at his father or mother-in-law
    will develop a stye.

    Kumchungulia mtu mzima aliyekaa uchi kunaleta upofu.

    Looking at a grown-up person naked will
    bring blindness.

    Kuzaliwa na vidole sita ni mabruki.
    To be born with six fingers Is to have good
    fortune.

    Ukiuonyesha mwezi mchanga kidole. basi utakatika kidole.
    If you point at the new moon with a finger It

    will get cut.
    Mwenye kula miguu ya kuku atakuwa daima
    katika mwendo tu

    He who eats a fowl’s legs will become a wan-
    derer.

    Inakatazwa kunywa maji ndani ya kata pasi na
    kuikung’uta.

    It Is forbidden to drink water from a ladle
    without vigorously shaking It first. (To ensure
    that it is clean and free from Insects.)

    Kupeana mkasi mikono kwa mkono kunasabibisha kuchukiana bure.
    Handing over a pair of scissors to someone
    directly causes hatred.

    Kukaa juu ya mto kunaleta majipu matakoni.
    Sitting on cushions causes boils on the but-
    tocks.

    Kukutana na paka mweusi usiku ni nuksi.
    Meeting a black cat at night means bad luck.

    Kunywa maji ya chooni kunapeleka mtu kuwa
    mwongo.

    Drinking water from the lavatory makes a
    man a liar. (Intended to discourage so unwholesome a habit.)

    Kutema mate ndani ya lindi kunaleta kuumwa
    na koo.

    Spitting into the cess-pit causes sore throat.

    Kumbusu mtoto usingizini kunasabibisha mtoto

    Kissing a sleeping child will make It grow up
    conceited.

    Mwenye kuchukua Quran kichwani ataingiliwa
    na wazimu

    Carrying the Holy Quran on the head will
    cause madness.

    Kukaa kitini na kupunga miguu mbele na nyuma m kufukuza riziki.
    To sit on a chair swinging one’s legs backwards and forwards will drive away one’s
    daily bread.
