Salam everyone. Hope your all well :)

I just wanted some advise in regards to facing the Qibla when it comes to salah.
Many times when i'm out studying/shopping etc and need to pray salah, I wont know which way the qibla is.
Yes I don't own a compass ( should buy one) nor do I have an app that has a compass on (i dont trust them).
I was wondering if it's ok to make an estimate as to which direction the qibla is, so basically guessing? lol
Or if any of you have a method of estimating which direction the qibla is without a compass, please share?

I need to buy a compass though lol

The easiest option these days may be to find a good app on your phone which shows the direction. There are many of them available, eg. :

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... adirection

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/qibla-c ... 44328?mt=8

Other than that, if there is no way to know the direction, I don't think God would reject the prayer just for that reason.

Thank you for your response :)

I don't trust apps. Most that I have tried were not reliable at all. I test them at home and in other locations where I know the direction of the Qibla and most of the time it does not match. So I have given up on apps.
