    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 846/846/M=1434) The holy Kabah is reverend and honourable. It is against etiquette to stretch one’s leg towards it. Hence it is makrooh to sleep or take a rest while stretching one’s legs towards Qiblah. ويكره مد الرجلين إلى الكعبة (هنديه 5/315)

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
