Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

Once I went upstairs in Hafsa's house and saw the Prophet answering the call of nature with his back towards the Qibla and facing Sham.
حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ الْمُنْذِرِ، حَدَّثَنَا أَنَسُ بْنُ عِيَاضٍ، عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى بْنِ حَبَّانَ، عَنْ وَاسِعِ بْنِ حَبَّانَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ ـ رضى الله عنهما ـ قَالَ ارْتَقَيْتُ فَوْقَ بَيْتِ حَفْصَةَ، فَرَأَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقْضِي حَاجَتَهُ، مُسْتَدْبِرَ الْقِبْلَةِ، مُسْتَقْبِلَ الشَّأْمِ‏.‏
