Qibla

The Qibla direction is the direction facing the Kaaba in Mecca. The second surah of the Quran, "Al Baqarah.," directs that a believer must pray salat, islamic prayer, fives times a day in the Qibla direction.

A Qibla wall is the wall of a masjid, usually containing a mihrab, that shows the Qibla direction.
