Prayer is one of the five pillars of Islam. One of the conditions for its validity is to turn towards the Kaaba which is located in Mekka.
Every muslim must turn towards Mekka during the prayer (salat) but it’s not always easy to find the exact direction (the qiblah).
In less than ten days, on Monday 16th July, the sun will be exactly over the Kaaba. At this moment, looking at the sun, everyone will be able to confirm or correct the direction he faces in each prayer. This is a great event!
That’s why we invite you to transmit this information to your mosques (for instance, you can print this article and put it at the mosque entry), your associations, your blogs, in forums and to your e-mail contacts.

And on the D day, put your heads outside, go out in your garden, stop your car, go down and look at the sun (don’t forget to protect your eyes). You will then know with certainty where the qiblah is. This will be an unforgetable moment!
