    Default Direction of Qibla for England

    hi there, i am confident that the praying direction for England is South East
    can someone please confirm this ?

    and can you please tell me accurately as possible (if not south east), thanks

    the reason i am asking is because i think that the praying direction (at college) is slightly of (or is rather facing east rather than south east) thanks

    Salam, we have always used South East. Best thing would be to go to a local masjid and see whwere the imam is standing, and compare it to your place or home.

    45 degrees is ex usable
    so that is 22.5 degree either side

    for e.g. is the praying direction is south east
    then you are allowed 22.5 degrees clock wise and anti clock wise

    im confident that this is the case

    i think that the compass varies depending on where you sit inside the mosque
    try the compass in different places and etc
    or even at the very front near where the imam prays ?

    Inform them, use the qibla locator website posted above with the 'satellite view' pointing the building facing qibla, that way every one will be satisfied.

    double check this. if i remember correctly it is 45 degrees either side, not 22.5 degrees either side.
