Mecca Problem!

So you are a little off, dont worry, no one will notice!

So you were a little off, dont worry, no one will notice!

I am not too sure but I think this is bad. It has been revealed 200 mosques in Mecca are pointing the wrong way for prayers.OK, here’s the thing, it is really, really important to be facing in the right direction for prayers in Islam religion.So much so, to avoid any confusion each mosque has a niche pointing in the direction of the most sacred Islamic site, the Kaaba, an ancient cube building in Mecca’s Grand Mosque. The problem it seems is that some of those niches aren’t exactly pointing directly to the Kaaba. Many are now fearing their prayers are  null and void because of this major minor oversight. Hmm, wondering why nobody noticed it until now? Well, it seems it has only come to light thanks to the recently built high rises where people can now look down over the city. A reassuring Islamic Affairs Ministry Deputy Secretary has announced “In any case, it does not affect the prayers.”.Sure, what else could he say!
