Which city will have the longest and shortest fast?

Ramadan, the month of mercy and blessings, has begun, in which Muslims around the world organize fasts.

The fasting period of the month of Siyam varies from 12 to 18 hours from sunrise to sunset around the world, depending on where you live in the world.

Ramadan starts every year 10 to 12 days earlier than the previous year, this is because the Islamic calendar is based on the Hijri lunar calendar in which months consist of 29 or 30 days.

Since the lunar year is 11 days shorter than the solar year, Ramadan will occur twice in the year 2030, first starting on January 5 and then starting on December 25.

Muslims living in southern countries such as Chile or New Zealand will fast for an average of 12 hours, while Muslims living in northern countries such as Iceland or Greenland will fast for more than 17 hours.

For Muslims living in the Northern Hemisphere, fasting hours will be slightly shorter this year and will continue to decrease until 2031.

Let’s find out what the fasting hours will be in cities around the world and where the longest and shortest fasts will be.
