2:144 We have seen thee turn about thy face towards heaven [with uncertainty], but we will cause thee to turn thy self towards a Keblah that will please thee.

Sura al-Baqara 2:158 - Qibla (Prayer Direction)
2:158 Moreover Safa and Merwah are [two] of the monuments of God: Whoever therefore goeth on pilgrimage to the temple [of Mecca] or visiteth it, it shall be no crime in him if he compass them both. And as for him who voluntarily performeth a good work; verily God is grateful and knowing.
Sura al-Baqara 2:177 - Qibla (Prayer Direction)
2:177 It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces [in prayer] towards the east and the west, but righteousness is of him who believeth in God and the last day, and the angels, and the scriptures, and the prophets; who giveth money for [God's] sake unto his kindred, and unto orphans, and the needy, and the stranger, and those who ask, and for redemption of captives; who is constant at prayer, and giveth alms; and of those who perform their covenant, when they have covenanted, and who behave themselves patiently in adversity, and hardships, and in time of violence: These are they who are true, and these are they who fear [God].
