Ramadan in Finland

The daylight fasting that is part of the Muslim observance of Ramadan takes on some heft when, as in Finland, the sun rises at about 3:20 a.m. and sets at around 11:20 p.m.

Such exigencies impose a reality check and some Muslims are forced to exercise "common sense..."

Which is about the outcome of any spiritual persuasion, I suspect: Don't be a spiritual nitwit ... spiritual discipline has its place, but that place is secondary.

Use your common sense.
