Going back in time

Posted on

Do not forget that the clocks go back an hour tonight in preparation for Ramadhan next week. It is customary in Egypt to put the clocks an hour behind during the month of Ramadhan. I have not witnessed this anywhere in the Muslim world expect Egypt. Normally clocks are put back or forth for the purpose of day light but it seems in Egypt it is related to Ramadhan to make it easier for people.

    Yes I’ve always thought this is a little bit of cheating!

      Yeah, I have always thought that too. I grew up in London and I remember when I was about 11ish and I was fasting, back then you had to fast from 3:30am till 09:30pm. Even as a child, you just learn to put up with it. personally do not like this easy route, even if it is an hour difference.
