Sun will align directly over Kaaba today
Muslims across the globe today will be able to spot the Qibla simply by facing the sun. Today, Wednesday, May 27, the sun will be directly above the Kaaba, which will help determine the direction of the Kaaba.
The sun will rise just above the Kaaba at 2:18 p.m. Pakistani time, which will help determine the direction of the Kaaba, which is the center for Muslims around the world. Twice a year the sun rises over the Kaaba, the first time on May 27th and the second time on July 15th.
