1- If one has no means to find out the qiblah direction or has no idea about it in spite of one’s efforts, one must, if time allows, offer four prayers each towards one of the four directions. But if there is not enough time for offering four prayers, one has to offer as many prayers as time allows, e.g. if time is only enough for one prayer, one should offer one prayer to any direction one wishes. Also one should offer the prayers so that one is certain that one of the prayers is either performed towards qiblah or the deviation is less than ninety degrees to the right or left.
