Qibla Direction Numbers in 40 or 400 Zone Compass

Numbers for Qibla Compass were updated in January 2010. US Naval Observatory has published more recent data on Magnetic Declination in December 2009. Moonsighting.com then recalculated Qibla directions for all the countires from Magnetic North. Remember, Qibla direction does not change; it is the change in the magnetic field, that causes the compass numbers for Qibla to change, because compass points to Magnetic North and not True North.

Following is a list of countries in Alphabetical order, and under each country are the major cities in Alphabetical order. Along with each city is a number corresponding to the 40 zone compass. (If you have a Qibla Compass having numbers up to 400, use the numbers given here with a zero added, e.g., for 13 use 130). These are computed by Khalid Shaukat, consultant to ISNA (Islamic Society of North America).
