Misreading Compass and Salaah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: Person misread compass and faced south instead of north north east for qibla. Found out after salah time expired.  Must he repeat?

A: If there was no one he could have asked regarding the direction of the Qiblah and he used the compass then the Salah will be valid. There is no need to repeat the Salah.
