    qibla change in islam


    There are more than 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, and each time they pray, they turn their faces in one direction, towards Mecca. The Islamic term for this direction is qibla. When a Muslim prepares to pray, no matter where he is, he turns towards the qibla, the direction of the Kaba. The Kaba is a small cube shaped building in the courtyard of the mosque known as Masjid Al Haram, in the city of Mecca, in the country of Saudi Arabia.


    “For every nation there is a direction to which they face (in their prayers). So hasten towards all that is good. Wheresoever you may be, God will bring you together (on the Day of Resurrection). Truly, God is Able to do all things. And from wheresoever you start forth (for prayers), turn your face in the direction of Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Mecca), that is indeed the truth from your Lord. And God is not unaware of what you do.” (Quran 2:148-149)

    Muslims do not worship the Kaba, or its contents, it is simply a focal point. Muslims worship One God, the Most Merciful, and the Most Wise. God decreed that when Muslims pray they all face one direction. It is a sign of unity that encapsulates the unity embedded in the religion of Islam.

    The Arabic word for prayer is salah and it demotes a connection between the believer and God; when all believers face the same direction it adds an extra dimension to the connection. The prayer connects the believers to God and the qibla connects the believers to one another. It has been said that if one could observe all the Muslims at prayer we would be able to see lines of worshippers bowing and prostrating like the petals of a flower opening and closing in unison.

    The qibla was not always oriented towards Mecca. The first Muslims prayed towards the al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Around sixteen months after Prophet Muhammad and his followers migrated from Mecca to the city of Medina, the qibla was changed to the Kaba. According to accounts by Prophet Muhammad's companions, the change happened very suddenly. During the noon prayer, Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, received a revelation from God instructing him to, "Turn your face towards the Masjid al Haram".


    “Thus, we have made you real believers in Islamic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad and his legal ways, a just nation, witnesses over mankind and the Messenger a witness over you. And We made the Qibla (prayer direction towards Jerusalem) which you used to face, only to test those who followed the Messenger from those who would turn on their heels (i.e. disobey the Messenger). Indeed, it was great (heavy) except for those whom God guided. And God would never make your prayers to be lost (i.e. your prayers offered towards Jerusalem). Truly, God is full of kindness, the Most Merciful towards humankind.”

    “Verily! We have seen the turning of your (Muhammad) face towards the heaven. Surely, We shall turn you to a Qibla (prayer direction) that shall please you, so turn your face in the direction of Al-Masjid- al-Haram (at Mecca). And wheresoever you people are, turn your faces (in prayer) in that direction...” (Quran 2:143-144)

    Changing the direction of prayer establishes Mecca as the fixed central point for worship. It establishes a common sense or purpose.

    Throughout the centuries, mathematicians and astronomers have established correct ways to determine the qibla (direction) from any point on the earth’s surface. There are two precise moments each year when the sun is directly above the Kaba, thus the direction of shadows in any sunlit place will point away from the qibla. There are also two moments per year when the sun is directly over the exact opposite position of the Kaba, thus pointing towards the qibla.


    It is important the Muslims make every effort to face the right direction when praying; however, slight deviations do not invalidate a person’s prayer. Prophet Muhammad said, “What is between the east and the west is qibla”.[1] Nowadays it is easy to locate the qibla. It is a simple matter to look at a map and draw a line between your location and the city of Mecca. Compasses and computer programs that locate the qibla are readily available and most mosques throughout the world have a niche in the wall to indicate the qibla.


    Islam is a religion of unity. Muslims are united by their belief in One God. They are one brotherhood united in the language and ritual of prayer and united by the direction of their worship. The qibla is not only about degrees of latitude or longitude it is about unity. It is about humankind united in the worship of the One God, Creator, and Sustainer of the universe

    It is the sword of the intellect. The sword that conquers the hearts and minds of people. The Quran says in Sura Nahl, chapter 16, verse 125:
    “Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided. "[Noble Quran 16: 125]

    . Increase in world religions from 1934 to 1984
    An article in the Reader's Digest Almanac, Book of the Year 1986, revealed statistics of the increase in the world's major religions for half a century (1934 to 1984). This article also appeared in the magazine La Vérité Pleine. Leading the way was Islam, which grew 235%, while Christianity grew by only 47%. One wonders what war has taken place in this century that would have converted millions of people to Islam?

    . Islam is the fastest growing religion in America and Europe
    The fastest growing religion in America today is Islam. The fastest growing religion in Europe is Islam. What sword forces Western peoples to accept Islam in such large numbers?

    Dr Joseph Adam Pearson rightly says: "People who fear that nuclear weapons will one day fall into Arab hands, do not realize that the Islamic bomb has already been dropped, it fell on the day of the birth of Muhammad (peace be upon him

    Asia is known for the diversity of its culture. Islam is the largest religion in Asia with approx. It has 1.1 billion followers.
    Islam is currently the largest religion in Asia (25%), followed by Hinduism. The total number of Muslims in Asia in 2010 was about one billion people (25% of the total population). Asia is home to the largest number of Muslims.



    All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

    Allah's Messenger Muhammad, peace be up on him , said that if one of them dies, his soul will return to him in the grave.




    The believer says: God is my master, Islam is my religion and Muhammad is a prophet. As for the unbeliever or hypocrite, he says when asked: Ha ha! I do not know. I heard people say things


    Explain the state of the soul after death and before burial. If only for a believer, the angels would tell him the good news of forgiveness and the approval of God.

    As for the spirit of the unbeliever, the angels announce to him his entry into Hell, and the displeasure he provokes with God.



    Salam alaykom wa rahmatullâh,I have a question pertaining to Judgement Day. I have read that judgement day will be easy for the believers and hard for the disbelievers and that it will only last like the time between zuhr and asr for the believers. But then I have also read that muslims will be running to different prophets asking for their intercession when the distress becomes too great for the people and they have stood for too long, suffering in the heat and terror and distress. How do the scholars combine these events? BaaraakAllâhu feekum.
    Answer

    All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

    The Quran indicated in several verses that the Day of Resurrection will be difficult for the disbelievers and easy for the believers, as in the Saying the Allah Says (which means): {And it will be upon the disbelievers a difficult Day.} [Quran 25:26]

    The verse indicates that the Day of Judgement will be easy for the believers, as in the Saying of Allah (which means): {And when the trumpet is blown. That Day will be a difficult day. For the disbelievers - not easy.} [Quran 74:8-10]

    Mulla Al-Qaari said in Mirqaat Al-Mafaateeh: "It means that it will be easy for the believers; either in quantity or quality; or both in quantity and quality." [End of quote]

    This easiness for the believers does not contradict what is mentioned in some Ahadeeth that the people will hurry on the Day of Resurrection to the Prophets to ask them to intercede with Allah for them to save them from the grief and distress which they experience. This is because even though they share the same situation with all the people in that great position and the length of this period, yet their distress will slowly be relieved and they will continue to experience easiness upon easiness until they settle in Paradise – we ask Allah to make us among the people of Paradise.

    Al-Qurtubi may Allaah have mercy upon him said in his book At-Tathkirah:

    "With regard to the believers, their difficulties will be relieved and they will experience ease after ease. The length period of standing (for reckoning) will be solved by speeding up their reckoning and by making the balance (of good deeds) heavier, and by making it easy for them to pass the Siraat (the bridge over Hellfire) and by being overshadowed by their good deeds. However, none of these difficulties will be relieved for the disbelievers. Whenever not of these difficulties end they move to a difficulty that is even worse than the previous one, until they end up in Hellfire, which will be their eternal abode." [End of quote]

    Among the easiness upon the believers is that Allah will inspire them to ask for intercession in order to come out of their situation.

    The Hadeeth reported by Muslim about the believers asking the Prophets for intercession reads: "The believers will be gathered on the Day of Resurrection, and they will be concerned about it [intercession], or will be inspired to seek it."

    It means that Allah will inspire them to ask for intercession; Allah enables them to this effect and makes it easy for them.

    As regards the Hadeeth in which the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "I swear by Him in Whose Hands my soul is, verily the matter will be made easy for the believer until it becomes easier for him than praying an obligatory prayer in the worldly life."; then the scholars differed in opinion about the chain of narration of this Hadeeth; some classified it as Dha’eef (inauthentic), whereas some others classified it as Hassan (sound).

    For instance, Al-Albaani and Shu’ayb Al-Arna’oot classified it as Dha’eef, whereas Al-Asqalaani classified it as Hassan.

    If we presume that this Hadeeth is confirmed, then if the period of distress and anguish is shortened, then it becomes easy on the person compared to the situation of another person whose case is prolonged.

    Some interpreters of the Hadeeth stated that this easiness differs from one believer to the other. For example, it will be easier for the one whose faith is complete than the one whose faith is lesser than him, although easiness and relief includes all the believers as we have already stated.
