Muslims all over the world will be given an opportunity to mark the exact Qibla direction today at 14:18 PST. As per the Met officials, the sun will shine directly over the head of Khana-e-Kaba today which will allow the Muslims to determine their exact Qibla direction. Muslims residing in their residence all over the world can easily mark their Qibla direction.
For this purpose, individuals can fix a stick on the ground vertically and the shadow of the stick will indicate the exact Qibla direction at the time mentioned above.
Qibla is the direction that is faced by Muslims when they pray. The direction is fixed as the direction of Kabba. The reason all Muslims pray while facing Kabba indicates unity and solidarity.
