Timing of Ramadan fasting in different countries: From 12 to 18 hours

Ramadan is a Muslim holy month that is observed worldwide, but the timing of the fast can vary from country to country. This is because the Islamic calendar is based on the lunar Hijri calendar, which has months of 29 or 30 days, making it approximately 11 days shorter than the solar year. As a result, Ramadan begins in different months each year, and the duration of the fast can also vary.

In 2023, Ramadan will last from 12 to 18 hours, depending on the location. The shortest fasts, at an average of 12 hours, are observed in countries like Chile and New Zealand, which are located in the southern hemisphere. Meanwhile, countries in the northern hemisphere like Iceland and Greenland observe fasts of over 17 hours. In cities like Longyearbyen in Norway, where the sun does not set from April 20 to August 22, Islamic scholars recommend following the fasting schedule of Mecca or nearby Muslim countries.

Here is a list of fasting durations in some cities around the world during Ramadan:
