These countries fast longest in Ramadan 2017

Fasting will be the longest in Greenland and Sweden, and shortest in Chile and Australia.

Muslims across the world including Pakistan have entered into the most respected and celebrated Islamic month of Ramazan.

The commencement of Ramazan is determined by the lunar cycle every year and its timing shifts in relation to the Western calendar worldwide each year. For the aforementioned reason, Muslims is some parts of the world face the longest fasting hours while others face the shortest ones.

In recent years, Ramadan has moved increasingly into the summer months which bring long days in the northern hemisphere and sweltering heat for many countries. Conversely, Ramadan has fallen on the shortest, winter days in the southern hemisphere.

Last year, fasting hours across the world ranged between 11 and 22 hours. This year, fasting hours will range between 10 hours in Chile and 21 hours in Greenland.

Fasting will be the longest in Greenland and Sweden, and shortest in Chile and Australia.

Muslims in Greenland, Norway, Finland, Germany and Canada will observe fasting of about 21 to 18.5 hours.

Whereas the countries observing the shortest fasts include Chile, Australia, South Africa and Argentina where the fasting hurs will last between 12 to 10 hours.
