How to find qibla with compass?

How to find the direction of Qibla with a compass? What should we do to find the qibla direction with the help of a compass? In this article, you will find what you need to do step by step to find the qibla direction with a compass. As it is known, the main directions can be found quickly and practically with a compass. First of all, let’s give information about the use of a compass:

Since compasses are magnetic instruments, they are affected by the metal objects around them. We should make sure that there are no metal objects that create a magnetic field around the compass. For example, all kinds of metal objects, cars, computers, televisions and similar objects that create magnetic fields. The magnetic compass undergoes a deviation due to metal and similar objects that create a magnetic field. It is important to take measurements away from objects that create a magnetic field to get accurate results.

Now hold the compass in your hand parallel to the ground. You can also place it on a fixed object such as a table to take measurements. The most important part of the compass is a magnetic needle. This needle is mounted on the compass body to move freely. Wait until the compass needle is stationary. The (red) colored tip of the compass needle always points north. This makes it easy to find directions. When you turn in the direction indicated by the colored compass needle, your front will point north, your back will point south, your right arm will point east and your left arm will point west. (For the northern hemisphere) Based on these cardinal directions, you can find your qibla direction approximately. Of course, you need to decide according to the geographical location of the country you live in. You can pray towards this qibla direction, which we have found by determining the direction with a compass. However, if you want to determine the qibla direction precisely and clearly, you need to know the angle of the qibla direction of your location.

To find the qibla precisely with the help of a compass, do the following: First of all, we need to find the angle of Qibla in our location. You can use qibla finder sites on the internet to find out the degree of qibla. We remind you that you need to use the qibla degree for the compass.  We will then measure away from objects that create a magnetic field. Now hold the compass in your hand parallel to the ground. We wait until the compass needle is fixed. We turn the compass until the colored compass needle coincides with N on the compass bezel. We stop when N intersects with the colored compass needle. Now, we find the qibla degree clockwise starting from N. The direction indicated by the qibla degree for our location is our qibla direction. We have now determined our qibla direction precisely and 100% accurately, and we can now pray in the direction of the qibla we have found with peace of mind.
