assalam-o-alaikum,

What is the concept of vastushastra in construction of buildings and placing things in house according to islam? Is it something that really exists or is just a belief?

jazakallah khairun.

Vastu Shastra as the name shows comes from Hinduism.

According to Hinduism:
Vastu means, ones House.
House always occupies a special place in one's life. Vastupurusha, the deity of the house, determines the fate of the inmates of the house.
If not adequately propitiated, the Vastupurusha becomes angry and the occupants suffer beyond description.
It is based on 
Directions of your house
Shape of the plot,
Inside design of the house e.g. bedrooms, sitting rooms etc

So it is non Islamic as we only believe in One God, not in Vastupursha.

Bro Haleem as I mentioned three different parts of this art above.
I would consider just one to make you understand. 

For Example
Directions

East - East is the direction supposedly belonging to Lord Indra, the king of gods. Sun rises in the east. It is considered most auspicious & holy of all directions.

West - Westward beginnings bring failure in any undertaking. Lord Varuna lives in this direction.

North - The north is supposed to be the direction of Lord Kubera, the deity of prosperity. The owner of a house, which has the entrance facing north, certainly becomes prosperous. While retiring in the night, one must place one's feet towards the north & one's head in the direction of the south so that one gets to see the north immediately on waking up in the morning & is blessed by Lord Kubera.

South - Yama, the Lord of death, is presumed to be the lord of the south direction. Houses with entrance doors in the south bring ill-luck to the occupants.

Please note this is all based on Hinduism and has nothing to do with Islam.

jazakallah for the replies,

yes i do believe that these are just some beliefs and traditions followed by hindus. but i just want to get it clarified because i have heard of muslims who innocently or ignorantly follow these stuff in india(dont know whether same thing happens at other places too).

jazakallah once again.

As-Salaam-O-Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I would like to add my perspective to this topic with regards to Islam.

As muslims

- we should avoid being seated in the toilet facing the qibla, so we should try to change the direction of the comode if it makes you face the Qibla. Qibla is West for people in East and vice-versa. 

- while sleeping its best to have our heads lying towards the Qibla, so that even while we are sleeping our heads are down towards Qibla.

- some muslim friends suggest its good to have exit of our house towards Qibla, so that when we leave our home we are facing the Qibla.

Does anyone know if our Beloved Prophet (SAW) suggested anything with regards to this?

Please correct me if I have said anything wrong. Allah knows best.

Jazakallah Khair.
Nusrat Ali
