    Insha'Allah I will visit Finland and the rest of Scandinavia one day. I have good friends in Sweden, have been fascinated with Norway since I was a kid (blame the musical group a-ha), and used to take a class on Danish culture when I was in elementary school.

    Subhan'Allah.

    Beautiful. Words cannot describe it.

    I was looking at some pictures of different galaxies, solar systems and planets. Subhan'Allah I don't think I've ever seen something more stunning. Left me in awe of Allah SWT and his creation.

    We can't even begin to comprehend the beauty of Jannah.

    May Allah grant us all a place in Jannatul Firdaus, Ameen.

    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "There are two expressions which are very easy for the tongue to say, but they are very heavy in the balance and are very dear to The Beneficent (Allah), and they are, 'Subhan Allah Al- `Azim and 'Subhan Allah wa bihamdihi.'"
    [Sahih al-Bukhari 6406]

    Sister Herb, you are so lucky. I've seen the aurora borealis on a documentary once and have always wanted to see it in person. One day, I will.

    Are you able to look at it when it happens?

    They are visible with naked eyes and look just same like when filming them. This film is captured as the time-laps technic, so in the nature they are slower. It usually looks like the wavy flames on the sky. At the northern parts of the Finland they are stronger, here is south (where I live) they are quite rare and usually much more pale. Occasionally they might be strong here too.

    Yes. Unfortunately they are quite pale and rare here in south Finland. At the north Finland they are more common and stronger.

    But wait when ramadan is at the winter - then day takes only 5 to 6 hours, at the north even less.

    extremities... I did joke back in the day how I'd love to do ramadhan in a nation which saw very little daylight lol. But then again, I'm not that far from Finland so when you have short days, so do we - just not as short.

    Re: Finland: Northern Lights

    If you stay in Inari where that video was from, there isn´t daylight at all at this time of the year. The polar night is about 50 days. However, at the mid summer there isn´t nights at all and this makes fasting quite impossible if using the local times. The polar day is normally for 74 days.

    Naturally Muslims whose live so up north can´t use the local times for the fasting.

    There is an easiness with every hardship. It is too cold in the north in winter but the day is too short and the day too long in summer but the weather is warmy. It is vice versa for the south.

    Ya know, I did wonder about the way daylight (and night time) is perpetual for extremely long periods of time in the polar regions of our planet. But I never wondered how that would affect Muslims in Ramadhan...

    Mute the music, and watch this:



    Looks like something out of a sci fi fantasy novelette. Muslim friendly? Maybe the people are, but the weather deffo aint lol

    Assalamu alaikum

    Hopefully I'll be coming to Finland end Dec. Which month does the northern lights occur in?

    Gonna be staying in airbnb for a few days at Tampere till I get school accomodation on Jan.

    Around what time does the khutbah start on Fridays? Are there many places in Tmp that people go to for congregational prayers?

    Also what are the must see places there? I'm gonna be staying there for quite a bit.
