Countries which have six months day and six months night

Q: It has been some time ago that I had read something in Ma’aariful Quraan of mufti Shafi’ sb (RA) and I just cannot remember in which volume it appears. The discussion was on the namaaz times in those countries where they have six months day lite and six months night. First time I had read that explanation and I’d like to read it again but just cannot find it. Will it be possible to let me know under the tafseer of which aayat I will be able to find it?


A: Check Ma’aariful Qur’an 1/461.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
