    Because they can see the sun longer and can’t break their fast until after sunset

      Ramadan’s fasting goes from sunrise to sunset, so being higher in the sky they get more daylight.

      If a Muslim lives near one of the poles they could potentially get away with fasting for only a couple of hours when Ramadan is in winter (but I’m not sure what Allah would think of that.)
