Question

I use to make a fasting in every Monday and
Thursday but the problem is during summer
when days are longer sometimes we pray
Maghrib 10 o'clock in the night, now what
can I do? Please help me. Even Fajr we pray
2 or 3 o'clock midnight. I need your prayers
because I am facing a very difficult been
staying here in Norway as a Muslim to get
working permit or resident permit is hard so
please help me with prayers.

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.
Fasting on Mondays and Thursdays is a
Sunnah and not an obligation. So there is no
harm if you do not fast due to hardship in
fasting, the length of time, or other reasons.

As regards the obligatory fasting, like the
month of Ramadan and other obligatory
fasting, [like in the case a person has to
make up some missed days of Ramadan] then
one has to fast as long the day and night are
distinguished by the setting of the sun and
the beginning of Fajr time. In any country
where day and night are distinguishable,
fasting should be from the beginning of Fajr
time to sunset, as Allah says (which means):
{"… and eat and drink until the white thread
(light) of dawn appears to you distinct from
the black thread (darkness of night), then
complete your fast till the nightfall …"}
[2:187]. There is no difference whether the
day is long or short. However, if the fasting
person finds hardship to an extent that he is
harmed, then it is permissible for him to
break the fast and make up for that day
whenever he is able to do so. Allah says
(which means): {Allah burdens not a person
beyond his scope.}[2:286]. Allah also says
(which means): {And has not laid upon you in
religion any hardship.}[22:78]. As regards the
difficulty that you are facing, then we ask
Allah to make a way out for you from all
difficulties and to rectify your affairs. We
advise you to fear Allah, as this is the key for
all good. Allah says (which means): {And for
those who fear Allah, He (ever) prepares a
way out for him and He provides for him
from (sources) he never could expect. And
whoever fears Allah, He will make for him of
his matter ease. That is the command of
Allah, which He has sent down to you; and
whoever fears Allah, He will remove for him
his misdeeds and make great for him his
reward.}[65:2-5].
Allah Knows best.
