The clocks actually went back last night in Egypt. It was announced the day before in the local papers that during the month of Ramadhan the clocks will be put back an hour. Soon after Ramadhan has finished the clocks will be put forward again for a few weeks and after which the clocks will be put back again for summer time. Did anyone get all that?
I know technically we still get to fast the same amount of hours but somehow it seems like cheating to me. Why go through all that trouble for an hour? If you were going to put the clocks back to make it easier for the people then hey, why not go all the way and bring the clocks back for at least 3 or 4 hours where everyone can have a very late dinner at about midnight, then pray fajr at 1am and then go to sleep.
I just don’t get and I have never heard of this anywhere in the Muslim world except Egypt.
