How Do Muslims Observes Ramadan in The Arctic Circle Where There is no Dawn and Dusk?

Ramadan in The Arctic Circle

Ramadan, which is popularly known as Ramadan among Muslims has been started earlier this month. During the observance of Ramadan, people are on severe fasting for almost a month. It’s quite strange but it’s true. They don’t drink or eat anything at all between dawn and dusk. Not only this they also refrain themselves from other pleasures too like smoking a cigarette or anything else. But have you ever wondered how do they practice Ramadan in the Arctic Circle where there is no sunset?

Read on to know about it.

In some parts of the world, people say that it is easier for them to practice Ramadan.

Some areas have exceptionally long days in summer like Scandinavia, Canada, Russia, and Alaska above the Arctic Circle, where the sun does not set for weeks at a time. Since Ramadan is tied to the lunar calendar, these places experience the opposite problem during the winter season where the sun won’t rise for more than a month.

Then what do the Muslims do when there is no sunrise or sunset to continue their fasting during the holy month of Ramadan?

Well, there is no principle or authority who can guide these people about how can they do their fasting in these areas where there is no dawn and dusk. Many people have come up with their own solution and this is ignoring the sun’s local position and following more reasonable sunrise and sunset times from another place.

For example, The Islamic Center of Northern Norway has issued a fatwa that gives Muslims the option of following the fasting hours of the holy city of Mecca when the local fasting day exceeds 20 hours.

Seeing this decision, The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America made a similar rule for Muslims that people who are living at extreme points of Alaska uses the dawn and dusk time of another country to observe their fasting where a day can be differentiated from the night.

“One more new rule came into existence after this by The Council of Senior Scholars in Saudi Arabia who has decided that Muslims living in a region where sun does not set in summer and does not rise in winter should observe their fasting hours based on the sunrise and sunset timing of the closest country in which night can be distinguished from day.”

So, basically, Muslims perform their holy Ramadan on the basis of principles and rulings made by the senior authorities in the areas where there is no dawn and dusk observed.

5 Unexpected Things That Your Voice Indicates To Another Person Who is Hearing You

It may be seen very shocking and unbelievable to you but this is correct. Most of the studies and research has found out that your voice is an indicator of your overall personality as well as your health. Just like we don’t have a similar personality, in the same way, we also don’t have the voices that match with another person. Just like the way you speak, it indicates many things like your personality, trustworthiness, height and moreover your fertility.

Here, in this article, we have listed some of the unexpected things that your voice can indicate to the other person who is hearing your voice. Scroll down below –

1. Your height

Did you know your voice tone can help predict your height that whether you are taller or shorter? If you have a lower and deeper voice, then you must be a taller person as the person who has s shorter height does not have a deeper voice. This has also been proven in a study presented at the Acoustical Society of North America’s annual conference in 2013.

As per the study founded by UCLA, women who have a voice with higher pitch are more fertile as compared to those who have low pitch. Researchers also think that men find those women attractive who have higher pitch voice as it indicates high fertility.

3. Indicator of your trustworthiness

Even your voice could tell how trustworthy you are. The University of Glasgow conducted a research study in which they have recorded the voice in different versions and other members were employed to listen to those voices to gauge out the difference between them. The finding of the research was not so accurate but the men who have a voice with higher pitch were seen to be more trustworthy and the women who have a lower pitch voice are seen as more trustworthy.

Your voice also differs when you talk to your friend or lover. Because you talk normally while talking to your friend and when you talk to your lover, you generally talk in a sexier and more pleasant voice. As per the study findings, people were able to identify the voices after comparing the voices while talking to friend and lover. Research has found that people change their voices according to the person they are talking to communicate their relationship status.

5. Your social nature

Your voice also indicates your personality whether you are introvert or extrovert. During one study, people listened to the computer-generated speech, which sounded like the voices of introverts and extroverts. The study found that people have different personalities and so their voices. People who are extroverts tend to speak louder and faster while introverts talk slowly and quietly.

on

When you think of your childhood, you may have stronger memories associated with a certain set of foods like Parle-G, Natkhat, Poppins, Sweet Cigarettes, Popsicles, Rola Cola, Fatafat and many others. I know these fun foods were more than love for most of the kids and even now. But sadly, some of the products have become extinct now and we couldn’t help. That is why I will take you through your childhood days foods again by mentioning here some of the all-time favourite foods of the kids when they were in their childhood. No matter whether they are with you today or not, but whenever you heard of them or come across they make you happy and nostalgic at the same time.

Let me take you through some of the foods that helped shape your childhood.

1. Phantom Sweet Cigarettes

Phantom Sweet Cigarettes

One of the sweetest childhood memories that we all have. These cigarettes were famous among every kid and they used to love and flaunt them along with their friends just to become super cool. They looked similar to a cigarette only but were mint flavoured.

2. Natkhat

Natkhat

Then and now, Natkhat is still one of the most loved snacks of every kid. Do you remember the packet costs only Rs. 1 which you will find hard to get nowadays? We used to love carrying these packets when we go out for a picnic.

3. Gold Spot and Rola Cola

Gold Spot and Rola Cola

Forget about today’s coke or slice. Nothing could ever beat the taste of Gold Spot and Rola Cola. Gold Spot was a bit sweet in taste with some fizz, while Rola Cola was the super solid candy which tastes like a cola. They both were so amazing and we still remember that.

4. Crax

Crax

Crax was spicy and masala flavoured ring-shaped snack which was also among the kid’s favourite during the 90s. Besides eating them, children also used to make fun by wearing the rings on the finger taking the feel of a ring. And, it also didn’t costs a fortune, just Rs. 5 only.

5. Parle-G

Parle-G

Parle-G is still our favourite, whether you dip it in a cup of tea or a glass of milk. It tastes completely awesome. Thank god this is not extinct and you can easily find out them easily in any grocery store.

6. Fatafat

Fatafat

These were actually the digestions pills similar to Hajmola, but we never used them like pills. Its tasty tangy flavour had made everyone go mad for it.

7. Rooh Afza

Rooh Afza

One of the tastiest and refreshing drink that we all had during our 90s. It was more like a welcome drink and was served to the guests who visit our houses. Seriously, its rose flavour was loved by every kid, especially when it was mixed with cold milk. Isn’t it?

So, these were some of the fun foods that were our all-time favourite and even now. How many of you would like to taste them again?
