In March the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) instructed Muslims in Indonesia to pray to the west so they would be facing the holy city of Mecca as they’re supposed to. On Friday the council changed its mind after discovering that westward meant people were actually facing Somalia or Kenya. “We are now suggesting people shift the direction slightly to the northwest,” said the head of the MUI. Not to worry, though. He said no prayers were wasted. “Their prayers will still be heard by Allah,” he said. Unlike the iPhone 4, with prayers there are no dropped calls.
