Qibla direction

The qibla direction is just parallel to the building walls. That is, the qibla direction is 90 degree with the wall of north-west side of the building. Alhamdulillah, it is a great benefit for the Saitama Masjid so that the space can be used efficiently & nicely for Salat Jamat. The rows of Salat Jamat are arranged parallel to the north-west side wall of the building to face exactly to the qibla.

There are many regular and occasional activites in Saitama Masjid. Daily 5 times prayers are in the Saitama Masjid by following a yearly fixed Jamat schedule. We pray the Juhor, Asr & Magrib Jamat on the working days (Monday ~ Friday) at rooftop, the top of the stairway (equivalent to 6th floor) of the Mechanical Engineering Building (Building no. 21 of Saitama University; Map) according to this Jamat schedule. Please visit the Regular Activities page for detail of ongoing activities. The announcement page is a great source to know about events to be held. Briefing about commemorated events are normally outlined in the previous activity page. Please visit About us page to contact us, to join email group and to get information about objectives, organization, homepage development, history and services. The old Musolla is terminated after establishing this new Saitama Masjid. Checking the Saitama Masjid Project page and Masjid achievement announcement will be very helpful.
