#EngTrivia: Random facts about Ramadhan

Hello, fellas! How are you today? Got any good news to share? Anyway, in less than two weeks, Ramadan will come to an end. I really don’t know what to feel about that.

But I think it’s not too late to share some random facts about Ramadan from all over the world. Today I will share some random facts about Ramadhan! Feel free to chime in at any time!

  1. In Indonesia, the time from Fajr until Iftar is approximately 13 hours. While in the Scandinavia, it takes as long as 21 hours!
  2. While in Argentina and Chile, fasting only lasts for about 9 hours.
  3. In Saudi Arabia, Iftar is completely free in Masjid al-Haram. The government and the donors have to provide at least USD 134.000 every day! It’s about 1.8 billion in Rupiah.
  4. Many countries have their own special menu for iftar, but dates are universally the fast-breaking food of choice.
  5. Because of the difference between Hijri year and the traditional solar year, Ramadan falls earlier each year.
  6. Most dieticians would agree that fasting is not an effective diet plan. The slow metabolism often gives way to binge eating at night.
  7. In certain countries, Muslims that are caught not fasting during Ramadhan can be sentenced to time in prison!

Well, I guess that’s it for now, Fellas! See ya!
