    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 556/J)

     

    Toilet should at least be 45 degree diverted from exact Qibla (Kaba direction); it is not allowed if it is less than it. Therefore, you should not keep your toilet at the existing position but get it diverted more than 45 degree from exact Qibla direction.
