DIRECTION FOR SALAT(QIBLA)

The Details of the Question
I MOVED FROM A DIFFERENT COUNTRY TO THE U.S LAST MONTH AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE TO FACE DURING SALAT.I FACE ANYWHERE TO PRAY.IS MY SALAT VALID?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

One who does not know the direction of qiblah; firstly should ask around and make a search about where the qibla is. If there is no chance to ask someone else, s/he himself/herself makes a search and performs the prayer (salat) to the direction s/he is convinced to be it is. If the direction s/he faced for salat is understood to be wrong direction after salat is performed. There is no obligation for reperforming it. However, if there is a possibility to ask for the right direction to someone else and witout asking and searching if s/he had performed; it is compulsory to reperform the salat after learning the right direction (qibla).
If you inform us in which state and city you live, we can send you the qibla hour of that place. During the qibla hour, when you face to the sun, the direction you faced is qibla.
