The Most Holy Spot - Bahá'u'lláhs Shrine in Bahjí

 In His Book (Kitáb-i-Aqdas) Bahá'u'lláh prescribes the obligatory prayers; designates the time and period of fasting; prohibits congregational prayer except for the dead; and fixes the Qiblih...

 67. QUESTION: Concerning the long Obligatory Prayer, it is required to stand up and "turn unto God". This seemeth to indicate that it is not necessary to face the Qiblih; is this so or not?
»ANSWER: The Qiblih is intended.

Face of the Dead Should be Turned Toward the Qiblih "The dead should be buried with their face turned towards the Qiblih. There is also a congregational prayer to be recited. Besides this there is no other ceremony to be performed" (From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, July 6, 1935)
