Question:Lately I have been having trouble with my qibla. I use an app to direct me to the qibla. However lately I realized that the qibla keeps changing after I make my prayer. I keep looking back at the app and it would give me a new direction every time I would go to pray. So my question is what is the most accurate way to get the correct qibla by using one of the qibla apps? I usually put it on the carpet.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: I would suggest having two apps and test with both to see if the Qibla is the same or do they both give different readings.

Question:I have a question regarding the limits of obedience to parents. my friend's father has been emotionally torturing her and physically and emotionally torturing her mother for XX years and i have been witness to the emotional trauma their whole family went through due to the father. now she has had enough and she stood upto her father. her father has stopped talking to her for the mere reason that she wanted to study further and this time she has made little efforts to apologize. someone told her that all her prayers will not be accepted by Allah SWT as her father is angry with her. she is otherwise a good and religious person but since she heard that her prayers are not being accepted, she does not pray that much as she believes her prayers won't be accepted. but after a lifetime of mental torture she is not ready to speak to her father again. my question is what are the limits to fathers' obedience? we must never be rude to them but they have a right to ruin their children's lives? is it true that even if a father who is unjust and forcing children to do his bidding just out of spite, if he is angry the prayers of children are not accepted?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: She has to be obedient to her parents as long as they are not asking her to disobey Allah.
