Muslims pray in a specific direction so that they’re pointed towards Mecca. It’s like a radio signal, the more accurately you’re lined up to Mecca the clearer the “signal” will be for Allah to hear you. I know what you’re thinking, “But what about the curvature of the earth. Aren’t they just praying off into space?” No you fool. Again, it’s like radio signals with the radio waves bouncing off the ionosphere and back to earth. Google it. Or ask Allah. Just make sure you’re pointed in the right direction.
