In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful  


 Dear Dr. Nabulsi,
 I want to know about fasting in Scandanavian countries (Norway for example) where fajr is (2.57) and Magrib is (10.9).
Should we fast for 19 hours or there is another choice?
 Thabk you


  Assalamu Alaikum;
 Dear brother,
 Wherever day and night are distinguished, Muslims should fast from fajr (dawn) till magrib (sunset), and those who can't should break the fast and fast the same number of days later.
As for those countries in which day or night last for months, Muslims should fast depending on the time of the closest country to them in which day and night are distinguished.
 Best regards
