The holy month of Ramadan is one of the most important events in the Islamic calendar. One of its main practices is the obligation on every able Muslim to fast from before the pre-dawn prayer until after sunset.
However, because the Islamic calendar follows lunar rather than solar cycles, the seasonal timing of the month changes every year by around 10 days, resulting in a 36-year rotation between the different seasons.
For people living in the far north and south of the globe, this results in some extraordinary lengths of time in which they must abstain from food and drink. In the far north of the Atlantic for example, the sun will never actually set at this time of the year, meaning that Muslims must follow the timings of other locations in order to maintain their religious duties reasonably.
May Allah reward all those who fast and pray in this blessed month!
