    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 909/756/B=1432) You should fix the seat of Western commode in toilet in a way that when you sit for your nature's call your face and back is not towards the Qiblah: عن أبى هريرة رضى الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم – إنما أنا لكم بمنزلة الوالد أعلمكم فإذا أتى أحدكم الغائط فلا يستقبل القبلة ولا يستدبرها الخ ابوداؤد ص 3 Note: The answer is correct, but it is makrooh to install western style commode in toilets.
