Weather of Arabia - The Islamic world is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the month of Ramadan, as astronomical forecasts indicate that Monday, March 11, 2024, will be the first day of the month of Ramadan 1445. This information raises questions about where will the longest period of fasting be? Where will the daylight period be shorter?

We must first realize that the duration of fasting is affected by the length of the day, which depends mainly on the location of the country on the world map. The closer the country is to the North Pole, the longer the duration of fasting at this time of the year, while the further south the country is from the equator, the shorter the daylight period.

This Ramadan, the city of Puerto Montt in Chile will record the shortest daylight period, with Muslims fasting for 12 hours and 44 minutes, while Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, will witness the longest periods of fasting, with an average of 17 hours and 26 minutes.

As for the Islamic capitals, Kampala in Uganda records the shortest periods of fasting, with an average of 13 hours and 17 minutes, while the average number of hours of fasting in Nur-Sultan, the capital of Kazakhstan, is 15 hours and 33 minutes.

With regard to Arab capitals, Moroni in the Comoros Islands records the shortest periods of fasting, with an average of 13 hours and 4 minutes, while Rabat in Morocco records the longest periods of fasting, with an average of 14 hours and 23 minutes.

Below are lists of fasting hours in the capitals of Arab and Islamic countries and the most prominent countries in the world
