Islam has solution to every thing

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga
in response to reader comment: Ramadan and early islam and the Ebionites

Submitted by Mansoor (Pakistan), Sep 9, 2009 at 00:52

In fact, some Muslims do live in polar regions such as Scandinavia. Because Ramadan stands for sacrifice not suicide, the local religious leaders have suggested fasting by the clock instead of by the sun, using the sunrise and sunset times of the holy city of Mecca as opposed to local time. Religion doesn't kill people; religious fanatics kill people. I hope your point raised by you regarding Ramadhan in Arctic region is answered! It is not true in your notion that Islam has a dead end to every matter. The Fiqah, Ijtehad and other principles are there to take decisions under the light of available information of Quran and Sunnah.
