Morocco Pauses DST for Ramadan
Morocco pauses Daylight Saving Time (DST) for 5 weeks during the month of Ramadan, starting Sunday, June 14, 2015.
Shorter Evenings for Ramadan
According to a Moroccan law from 2012, Daylight Saving Time will be paused for 5 weeks during the Muslim month of Ramadan (June 18 – July 17, 2015).
The pause in the DST schedule is designed to shorten evenings, making it easier for Muslims to observe the Ramadan fast during hours of daylight.
