Facing the qiblah when relieving oneself


1. Is it permissible for a toilet in ones residence to be constructed or located in a position where once seated on the toilet, the person will be facing the direction of qiblah?

2. Is there any wrong if ones bed is placed in a position which, when lying down the persons feet will be facing qiblah?

A: It is not permissible.

It is not right.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
