“What is between the east and the west is a qibla.” Statement attributed to the Prophet Muammad.

Sinan handed over the building to Suleiman:
“Oh, my Sultan, I have built this mosque for you, which will stand upon the earth till the day of the Last Judgment.” Quoted in Péter Rabb, “Sinan – Architect of the Ottoman Empire”, p. 24.

“The calculation of mosque orientations must have been among the most strictly guarded military secrets [sic]. In consequence, modern researchers are in the dark about their methods [sic]. We now know that they were able to accurately compute the orientation toward distant places [sic].” Deus, p. 30.
