Wednesday June 21 marks the longest day of the year for anyone living north of the equator.

This year, Ramadan coincides with the solstice, making today the longest fasting day of the holy month since it began on May 26: 14 hours and 14 minutes, to be exact.

Meanwhile, nighttime will last for nine hours and 46 minutes.

Muslims bearing the brunt of fasting (while collecting many good deeds in the process) will celebrate Eid El-Fitr on Sunday June 25.
