A few degrees out in this example is fine, but if it was a few degrees out in another example, it could matter.
So for example, if the Ulama say that an error of 45 degrees it's forgivable but the error was in fact 50 degrees, then it would be an issue if the Ulama said so.
I also noticed this small error but ignored it as it was for educational purposes and it answered the question. However, I didn't look out for errors as this is a topic we covered well and know more or less what we would be talking about.
I'm going to assume the error was in the old calculation method as this is one that I would probably never use.
The opinion you are describing is "an opinion" of Mufti Shafi Usmani (RA) in Jawahirul-Fiqh, it isn't the agreed upon opinion of "Ulama (as in plural)" and it is more like 45 degrees instead of 50 in geometry terms.
The Ulama disagree on this matter within the Hanafi Madhab and outside of the Hanafi Madhab, its a different ballgame.
But that's not the issue in the video.
The direction was never meant to be absolute and precise as the Sahabah (RA) never had the way to do it so precisely and exactly.
You guys are working too hard, the error is a lot more obvious
The difference in the actual Qiblah and "hypothetical" wrong Qiblah is 32 degrees (roughly), you can count the angles from the left or right or as per the comment in the YouTube video and the difference is still 32 degrees.
It is how to take the difference between two angles which can be done in many different ways.
Its 32 degrees which is the critical figure and not direction which you are facing as Abu Mohammed has explained.
You guys haven't caught the "mistake" in the video :P
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
