Link of the Day Click for more info

Here's a simple yet super-useful web application that tells you in which direction Qibla is according to your position on a Google map.

Now it's not so useful on it's own (there's still no way for a web page to give you compass directions yet!), but if accessible from a mobile device this can put to an end all those mental calculation/guesswork we do when trying to figure out where Makkah actually is when we arrive in a new place. After lining up your device with a known street or landmark you should be able to determine the direction of Qibla.

Thanks to Sarah for the link.
