The sun would directly be passing over Holy Kaaba today in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia today, enabling all the Muslims across the world to see the direction of the Qibla by seeing the sun at that very moment.
As per the shared details, the sun would directly be passing over the Holy Kaaba at 12:26 pm PST. The Muslims could fix their Qibla direction by facing the sun during this time when the Holy Kaaba’s structure would have no shadow.
The astronomers say that the sun aligns directly over the Kaaba twice a year that is on the 27th of May and the 15th of July.
This phenomenon assists in determining the direction of the Holy Kaaba for the prayers. This celestial occurrence happens because of the location of the Holy Mosque in Makkah between the equator and the Tropic of Cancer, as shared by the astronomers.
On the other hand, previously, the Pakistan Railways announced to operate special trains on the special occasion of Eid-ul-Azha. As per the Railways department, the routine operations in the country would be resumed fully by the end of this year. The restarting of the routine operations of the department is linked to the coronavirus situation in the country.
