[quote=Flopfoot]My understanding of Ramadan is that you are not allowed to eat until the sun sets each day.
What if you lived in Lapland, “the land of the midnight sun”, and Ramadan came during summer - when the sun doesn’t set for 61 days? Does that mean you can’t eat all Ramadan?
What if Ramadan came in winter there when the sun doesn’t rise for 61 days, could you eat whenever you want?
Good question. I heard this question being asked on an Islamic TV show, kind of “ask the scholar” type deal…I believe he said they should follow Saudia Arabia’s time schedule or the country closest to them that has a tolerable fasting time frame, but Allah knows best.
–But those who believe and work righteousness,- no burden do We place on any soul, but that which it can bear,- they will be Companions of the Garden, therein to dwell (for ever)–
