People Living on Top Floor of Burj Khalifa wait 3 Minutes Longer to Break Fast than those on Ground in Ramadan

Before its official opening in 2010, the Burj Khalifa was known as the Burj Dubai a skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is well-known for being the highest building in the world. With a total height of 829.8 m and a roof height of 828 m, the Burj Khalifa has held the title of tallest building and structure in the world since leadin out in 2009, beating Taipei.

Muslims all across the world mark Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, as a time for fasting, prayer, introspection, and community. Suhur is the term used for the dawn meal, and iftar is the term used for the evening meal that breaks the fast.

Because of its height, those inside on the Burj Khalifa’s top floors must wait longer than those on the base floor to break their fast. Because sunset occurs later on the upper levels than it does on the lower floors, residents there must wait an extra few minutes to break their fast.

“Burj Khalifa is almost one km (0.6 miles) high, which means people in higher floors can still see the sun after it has set on the ground,” According to Ahmed Abdul Aziz al-Haddad, Reuters.

Because they will be able to view the sun for three more minutes than those on the ground, those who are higher than the 150th level must wait.

There are 160 residential floors in Burj Khalifa.
