It is predicted that Ramadan will start on Thursday 23 April in 2020 once the first moon of a new lunar cycle is visible in Mecca. Although for all Muslims to observe it the length of the Islamic month of fasting is the same, the length of the daily fast is definitely not.

Since Muslims promise to abstain during daylight hours from eating and drinking, those living farther north will go without food and drink much longer than their counterparts living closer to the equator or even in the Southern hemisphere celebrating Ramadan during winter.

According to the website islamicfinder.com, Muslims who fast for Ramadan in Oslo technically have to do so for nearly 19 hours. Muslims in Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur, are fasting for around 13.5 hours. Finally, Melbourne in the Southern Hemisphere has only around 11 hours and 45 minutes of daylight hours, depending on the exact day of the month of Ramadan.

In Northern countries, some Muslims seem to feel unfairly treated by the lunar powers that control Ramadan and seeking alternative solutions. The town of Tromsø in the very north of Norway has adopted Mecca fasting hours (about 14 hours and 30 minutes), according to Der Spiegel's article.
