The arc of the moral universe bends towards chaos.
People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

The descent of Allaah happens in every country in a manner that befits Allaah, because the descent of Allaah cannot be likened to the descent of any of His creation… No one can know how He descends just as no one can know how His Essence is, except Him.
Fine. Allah works in mysterious ways too. But what do the poor mortal Muslims of Antarctica do around the Winter solstice? :)

There probably is an answer to that one, and it may even be pertinent. There could well be Muslims in Alaska, Finland, or other arctic regions.

The real rough one is Ramadan in summer. The month when you can't eat while the sun is up. The Muslim calendar is out of sync with the solar year so it happens every so often.

Even in Europe or Canada, summer Ramadan is pretty rough.

You might pose as an Eskimo convert who learned about Islam on the internet, and send the Imam a question. There is no registration. :D
