Qibla indicator

Qibla indicator, comprising a round brass box with a hinged lid and an inset magnetic compass. An invocation of Imam Ja'far (al-) Sadiq, the sixth Shiite Imam (died AD 765) is given in the centre of the inside of the lid. This is a typical example of the common circular qibla indicator, with lists of places with their longitudes, latitudes, 'inhirafs' and 'jihas', and a magnetic compass. While astrolabes, quadrants and sundials are to be found both in Europe and the Islamic world, the qibla indicator is a purely Islamic instrument. The instrument serves the user to determine the correct 'qibla' - the direction to which Muslims turn in prayer to face the Ka'ba in Mecca.
