    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1161/1118/L=09/1436) The starting and ending time of sawm is mentioned in the holy Quran: حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَكُمُ الْخَيْطُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الْخَيْطِ الأَسْوَدِ مِنَ الْفَجْرِ ثُمَّ أَتِمُّواْ الصِّيَامَ إِلَى الَّليْلِ [البقرة : 187] (2) People living in such areas shall follow the timetable of the nearest cities of their country.
