21 hours. Let that sink in.
Now if you haven’t done your math already, that’s just 3 hours to prepare for the next fast. Oh, don’t forget Maghrib and Isha (The dawn and night prayers).
Well, the only Muslim living in Greenland, Wassam Azaqeer, is doing exactly that. He is a Lebanese and has lived in Greenland for the past several years. What and where exactly is Greenland? A province of Denmark, its one of the largest Island’s in the world and a land of perpetual cold and crappy living conditions. But Wassam is too ballsy to care about that. He runs a restaurant in the capital city of Greenland, Nuuk and gets quite a lot of people every day.
Wassam thought of moving back to Lebanon for the month of Ramadan but then he’s like “If I leave, there will be no Muslim fasting in this land.”
My Respect for Mr. Wassam. A true hero.
