Pour s'orienter en direction de la Mecque, il faut prendre la direction Nord-Est
Dieu (Le Très-Haut) a dit: (Donc Tourne ton visage vers la Mosquée sacrée. Où que vous soyez, tournez-y vos visages.) (2 / 144)
Contrairement à l'idée populaire généralement répendue, à partir du Québec, pour s'orienter en direction de la Mecque en Arabie-Saoudite, il faut pointer la direction Nord-Est et non pas sud-est.
Qibla Direction from North America:
The controversy of Qibla from North America surfaces from time to time. One group of people favors the direction of South-East, and another group favors North-East. Those who favor South-East are mislead by looking at the flat map with an argument that Makkah is south and East of North America. They are under a fallacy that the earth is a flat plane. Actually it is more like a sphere floating in space of three dimensions. North Pole is a point from where every direction is South; there is no East or West from there. If you take a globe and stretch a thread from Alaska to Makkah, you will see that the thread passes through or close by North Pole. So, the Qibla from Alaska will be towards North. On a flat map, it appears to be South-East from Alaska, which is not correct.
Qibla from SunIt is not advisable to determine Qibla using compass specially for Orienting Masajid. The following method which uses the sun is more reliable. It has been observed for centuries and reported in many books by Muslims around the world that two times a year the sun comes overhead above Ka'bah. This is observational fact for centuries, and is used to set the correct Qibla direction in places far from Makkah by Muslims for last so many centuries. Those two dates and times are:
July 15 at 9:27 UT
When you observe the sun at these times (after converting it to your local time), you will be facing the Ka'bah giving you Qibla direction, because if there were a very high minaret over Ka'bah reaching up to the sky, then you will see it just like you are seeing the sun. Now, let us take a few examples. If you are in Islamabad, Pakistan (+5 hours time difference from Greenwich), the local time to observe the sun would be 2:18 pm on May 28, and 2:27 pm on July 15.
Similarly, if you are in Nova Scotia, Canada (-3 hours time difference from Greenwich), the local time to observe the sun would be 6:18 am on May 28, and 6:27 am on July 15.
If you are at a location that you cannot see the sun on the above mentioned two dates, then you can locate Qibla from the sun when it comes overhead at a point diametrically opposite of Makkah on the globe and look for the following two dates and times:
January 13 at 21:29 UT
Face toward the shadow from the sun at these times (after converting it to local time) and you will be facing Ka'bah. If you can see the sun but cannot see the shadow, put your back towards the sun and your face will be towards Qibla.
Notez que la question a aussi été posée à plusieurs professeurs cartographes et géologues de diférentes universités au Québec et ailleur au Canada. Étrangement leurs réponses furent tous erronées car pour la majorité elles furent élaborées sans tenir compte que la terre est ronde(sphérique) et non pas plate...
Ce sont là officiellement des preuves suplémentaires que même les scientifiques peuvent complètement se tromper et nous tromper sur des faits et des principes tout à fait élémentaires.
Notons que l'Islam enseignait que la terre est ronde avant même l'astronomie contemporaine
