In the following narration of Sahih Muslim, Kitabul Hajj:

فلما انصرفوا قبل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

Is the word ‘qabla‘ or ‘qibala‘ and what will the translation be?



The correct pronunciation is qibala (قِبَلَ) which means ‘in the direction of/towards Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).’


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
