Haji,in North Pole we have six months of nights and six months of days. How can we say our day and night prayers over there?
You look at me as if you have a bus ticket for the North Pole and you want to leave right now!
Actually, there are differences among the clergy over this issue. Some of them believe that we Muslims should never go tho North Pole because we are used to warm climates and the cold weather will bother us. So why should we go to a place where we might freeze to death?
