Salam

I think you misuderstood me, the quran says this:

2:187

(Abstinence is only for the daytime.) It has been made Lawful for you to go unto your wives on the night of the Abstinence. They are your garments and you are their garments close to each other, source of mutual comfort, complementing each other, trustworthy and keepers of privacy, reason for d�cor, and redressers of faults. God knows that you would have deprived yourselves and so He turns to you and pardons your misconceptions. So, now you may have intimate relations with them and, besides, seek all good that God has ordained for you. You may eat and drink until you can discern the white streak of light against the black streak of night at daybreak. Then complete the Abstinence until sunset. Do not have intimate relations with them while on special assignments in the Centers of the Divine System. These are the bounds set by God so come not near violating them. It is thus that God explains His Commands unto mankind clearly, so that they understand and live upright.

You said that people from genrations have fast 12 hours, but pleasse give refrence from quran that this is allowed.

Quran teach a universal deen, but how to practise Islam in region there are Midnight sun. Mullahs says that people who live in a region where the are midnight sun should follow a time from the nearest coutry. If this is true then islam is not Universal deen.

Can we interpret verse 2:187 i another way ?

Ihope you understand my Qusetion,
