My grandfather said that someone (I think his brother) when he was dying he told my grandfather's niece (probably the dying person's daughter) to direct him towards the Qibla. Then she directed him towards the Qibla, and he said the Shahada, then he died, may Allah have mercy on him.
Saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah or the Shahada before dying is very recommended, because:
The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If a person’s last words are Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah, Paradise will be guaranteed for him.”
Classed as Saheeh (authentic)
But what about facing the Qibla? Is there any narration about facing the Qibla?
Jazakum Allah khayran
