With the help of the compass, it is possible to find your Qibla direction accurately and quickly. You can easily learn your Qibla direction by applying the qibla compass degree of your location to the compass. For this, some basic aspects should be known about the use of magnetic compass and application of the Qibla degree to the compass

**How is a compass used?**

Earth's magnetic field pulls one side of magnetic needle of the compass to the north and the other side to the south. The colored needle of the compass always points north due to the mechanics of the formation of the earth. Other directions can be easily found based on this. The colored tip of the compass points north, the opposite direction south. Thus, the left side of the compass needle points west and the right side points east.

As stated previously, since the compass is magnetic instrument, it is affected by metal objects araund it. Any object that creotes a magnetic field and contains metal can deflect the compass. All metal objects such as a computer, cell phone, television, metal watch or metal accessory and devices that generate magnetic fields affect the compass. That's why the compass should be kept away from objects that generote magnetic fields.

**How do we find the direction of qibla with a compass?**

Hold the compass in your hand flat and parallel to the ground so that the compass needle can move freely. Or lay the compass on objects like table collaterally to the floor. The red indicator of the compass always points to magnetic north. The result of this, the direction of colored needle will point north and the reverse will point south. Now in order to find the Qibla direction sensitively the compass needle must cross with N on the compass collar. To do this, turn the compass until the colored compass needle coincides with the N on the compass collar. Put into practice the next step when the compass needle and N in the compass slot coincide.

Learn the Qibla degree of your city for compass from website. Be sure that the colored compass needle coincides with N (North). Now find clockwise the Qibla angle of your city from N on the compass bracelet. Now you can pray in the direction indicated by the qibla compass degree. For example, the Qibla angle used for London is 120°. Find 120th degree clockwise from N on compass. The direction of 120 degree is your qibla direction. Now you can pray in that direction
