Pathos knows the gate.
Pathos is the gate.
Pathos is the key and guardian of the gate.
Past, present, future, all are one in Pathos.
He knows where the Spambots broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.
He knows where They have trod earth's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.

Amateur. 3:00 AM is clearly the appropriate time for sunshine, as evidenced by what happens outside our window every night these days.

Have you considered moving to a more sensible part of the world?

This is a more sensible part of the world. I've lived places where the fucker never goes down. You get about 30 minutes of "well at least it's touching the horizon now", and then straight back to business.

I have no idea how the Muslims here even survive. Ramadan has got to be a bitch.

If you live somewhere where the sun never really goes down, Ramadan apparently just lasts from 6am to 6pm.

Jihad is declared on the Artic Circle to make the Sun behave more sensibly so people can observe Ramadan properly

Observing Ramadan on the space station would be even wierder due to the shortened 'days'. Or maybe they can just use the workaround used in the far north which is to do it as if they were roughly at the latitude of Mecca. Following the homeport timezone may also be reasonable or just use shipboard/space stationboard time.

That's how most calendar-based religious holidays have worked in space so far: they schedule their observances as if still at the launch site.

So if we ever start colonising other planets, how could that work? Re-schedule everything based on new planet's orbit? Assume that the planet is also on the launch site (more complications if several planets with movements between them... Who came from where?)? Act as if they were at $place_of_historical_religious_significance?

Here's the kicker:

What if the planetary system you colonize has a retrograde orbit compared to the galactic plane's rotation?

(EG, all the planets in the system orbit in the opposite direction, and all the axis of rotation for those planets is reversed, resulting in the sun rising in the west, and setting in the east.)

Good luck obeying those religious edicts about facing mecca. :P

I suspect that bridge will be crossed when we get to it.

Or on Mars even, since you aren't even on the same planet. There will probably be some agreed upon compromise or solution by the time we travel to the stars.
