You’re Fasting for How Long?!

People all over the world are fasting for Ramadan, and depending on where you are in the world, your fast could be longer or shorter than most people around the world!

If you’re from a Spanish-speaking country, you’ve got it easy! South American countries on whole have a lesser time between sunrise and sunset, with Chile having the shortest fasting hours at 10 hours.

On the other end of the spectrum, it seems that German-speakers might have it the hardest, with fasting hours in Berlin reaching up to 20 hours this year.

French speakers have a bit of range; while fasting hours in France reach up to 17 hours, much of French Canada only has about 14 hours of fasting.

Both here in Dubai and China, we can look forward to about 15 hours of fasting, according to recent reports.

However long our fasting hours are, we can rest assured that the spirit of Ramadan will be alight around the world in the coming month!
