Arabic Pick #030

Sharing some of the Arabic words and phrases I've learned over the years. If you are an Arabic language enthusiast just like me, try to incorporate the words or phrases posted here into your daily vocabulary. Have fun!
Hala everyone and welcome back to "Arabic Pick". In this week, the Arabic word/phrase is...

English:  The direction of Mecca; a Muslim should face this way during prayer.
Did you know that...
The arrow stickers you see in hotel rooms in the Middle East and the electronic arrows flashing on the screens in  every ME aircraft refer to Qiblas.

P.S. I have learned the above word/phrase informally. Arabic speakers, please feel free to correct me. Thanks!
