All practicing Muslims fast during the holy month of Ramadan. From the moment the sun rises to the moment that it sets, no particle of food or water should be taken into the mouth. In other words, no food or drink during sunlight hours. (You are free to scoff your face after sunset, however. I’ve known Muslim friends to put on weight during Ramadan, which kind of defeats the purpose of fasting.)
Anyway, fasting isn’t really an option for devoted Muslims. It’s one of the five pillars of Islam which makes it obligatory.
Problem is that when you get close to the North Pole there are days and days of continuous sunlight. In Greenland for example, which is home to the Kalaallit Inuit, the sun can stay out from the end of May to the end of July. It’s to do with the axis of the earth in relation to the sun. Google it.
So, imagine a faithful Muslim Eskimo who wants to follow all of Allah’s commandments. When the month of Ramadan falls during a period of continuous sun the Eskimo Muslim must not eat or drink for two months!
Does Allah really hate Eskimos? Was it part of his plan to deny them an afterlife? Or is it more likely that an ancient book was written by humans during a time when science knew nothing of the Polar Regions?
