Ramadan 2021: where the fasting days are the longest

Located on the westernmost tip of the African continent, Morocco and Senegal will begin the fast tomorrow, 24 hours after Saudi Arabia. During this period, Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset. Depending on the latitudes, this period can go from 18 hours of fasting in Oslo (Norway) to 15 hours 40 minutes in Paris, just over 14 hours in Mecca and around 12 hours in Melbourne, in the southern hemisphere, reports Statista. , citing the Islamic Finder website.

In the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is the ninth month of the year. It begins the day after the appearance of the new crescent just after a conjunction, and ends after another observation of the nascent crescent, which in turn signals the breaking of the aid al-fitr fast.
