  2. 2. Introduction When you pray your five daily prayers, you pray in a certain direction. In this lesson, we will learn what that direction is called and why we face that way when we pray.

  4. 4. What is the Qiblah for a Muslim?  The Qiblah,  or direction of prayer,  for Muslims is the Kabah.
  5. 5. How do we know that the Kabah is our Qiblah? Allah informs us of this in the Quraan. “Verily, We have seen the turning of your face (O Muhammad) towards the heaven. Surely, We shall turn you to a Qiblah (proper direction) that will please you. So turn your face to the direction of Al-Masjid-ul-Haraam.” Surah Baqarah: 144 Listen OnlineOR
  6. 6. Where is the Kabah? The Kabah is in the city and province of Makkah in the country of Saudi Arabia.
  7. 7. How do we find the Qiblah?  There is a misconception that Muslims always pray facing east, that's only true if you're west of Makkah. In the US, it's roughly northeast. If you are in Japan you would face west-northwest, and if in South Africa, you would face north-northeast.1  If you are in a Muslim country, you can ask someone which direction the Kabah is in. If you are in a non Muslim land, you may have to rely on technology to help you. Some ways you can determine the qiblah include using the sun, a sundial, a watch, a compass, or advanced technology such as apps. Find out how your family determines the Qiblah in your home. 1 http://www.wikihow.com/Find-the-Qibla-for-Prayer
  8. 8. What if we find out that we were praying in the wrong direction ???? "If a Muslim is on a journey or in a land in which it is not easy to find someone to show him the Qiblah, then his prayer is correct even after it becomes clear to him that he did not pray towards the Qibla. But if he was in a Muslim land, his prayer is not correct, because he is able to ask someone to show him the direction of the Qibla, just as he is able to know the direction of the Qibla via the mosques." http://www.salaficentre.com/2012/08/what-if-he-finds-out-that-he-did-not-pray-towards-the-qibla/
