Qibla Question

Salaam,

I wonder if anyone could answer this question. I was asked this and could not answer. Although it may sound a bit frivolous or overly "hair-splitting," I am curious as to whether it has ever been addressed.

The island of Tematangi in French Polynesia as the antipode to Holy Mecca. "Antipode" means it is at the exact opposite end, if one were to draw a line directly through the earth. I do not expect to go there, but if a believer were to go to this location, where would Qibla be? Because it is equidistant from Holy Mecca north, south, east, and west.

Respectfully,

Blueline

move 2 meters away from the exact middle. Then, pray to the closest location to Mecca.

As Salamu Alikum

similiar to not knowing the qibila so precautionairy it better to pray in 4 directions, however when it comes to hypertheticials ayatollah makarim shirazi has great research on these issuse email him.

Allah Hafez
