Question:

Assalaamu alaikum I live in a western
coutry where the summer days are
longer and even sometimes the sun
shines for 24h a day. We have been
fasting Ramadan months in the summer
according to the time of Makkah and
then fast again the same month in the
winter time to make sure we won't miss
any. I would like to know if that is ok.
Also like fasting the Mondays and
Thursdays and the days of full moon, it
is very important to my family and me
to keep tight to Islam in all ways
possible. All this is according to our
time but when the summer comes we
can't fast 23 to 24h, so we do it
Makkah time. Also it is important to
fast Ramadan at the same time with all
Muslims when it is in summer
Inshaallaah. Hope you help us in this
matter. Jazakumullahu khaira.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His Slave
and Messenger.

If the sun shines for 24 hours a day in
your country and never sets, then you
should fast and break the fast according
to the timing of the nearest country to
you where the sun rises and sets; this
applies to obligatory and
supererogatory fasting.

However, if the fasting person finds
hardship in fasting to an extent that he
is unable to continue the fasting due to
the extreme length of the day, then it is
permissible for him to break the fast
according to the necessity only [and not
eat his fill] and then make up for that
day whenever he is able to do so. As
regards supererogatory fasting, one is
not obliged to make up for the day he
broke the fast.

Allah knows best.
