Greenland is the largest island in the world; lies between the North
Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean; a self-governing province of Denmark.
According to an Arab TV report, Wassam Azaqeer, who is living in Greenland
from the past several years and has been called “Arab Columbus” as he is the
only Arab Muslim who not only managed to live in Greenland-despite for its
long and difficult journey, but also running a successful business in the
capital city of Greenland called Nuuk.
Wassam, is running his own restaurant where he receives 200 customers each
The month of the Ramdan,this year, came in summer so Wassam has to fast for
21 hours and after Aftari he only got 2 hours to prepare for Sehri to start
In these 2 hours Wassam, also has to offer his Maghrib and Isha prayers.
Wassam says that he is very proud Muslim to be living on a state where he is
the only one fasting and praying in the name of Allah.
He says he sometimes think about going to Lebanon in this holy month but he
stops himself by thinking that if left Greenland, there wont be anyone to
fast and pray on this land.
