Q: My question to you relates to Qiblah. We are moving to a new home InshaAllah, and we have realized that 3 of the 4 toilets are facing the qiblah, or atleast within the 15 degrees of the qiblah. What is the general ruling with regards to this? May the Almighty reward you for your efforts.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
