قبلة‎
Place: `Akká, Israel

In the Bahá'í Faith, the Qiblih is the location that Bahá'ís should face when saying their daily obligatory prayers. It is fixed at the Shrine of Bahá'u'lláh, near `Akká, in present day Israel.

The Qiblih was originally identified by the Báb with "the One Whom God will make manifest", a messianic figure predicted by the Báb. Bahá'u'lláh, who claims to be and is widely recognized as being that figure. In the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, He confirms the Báb's statement and further ordains his final resting-place as the Qiblih.
