Is Mecca really the center of religion and trade in the ancient Arab world? Or a lie?

From Petra back to Makka – From “Pibla” back to Qibla

Dan Gibson’s new book claims to turn upside down all of what we know about one aspect of early Islamic practice, namely, the sacred direction (qibla) toward the Kaaba in Makka. He believes that Islam began in Petra, not Makka, and that the focus of mus.lim prayer for the first two centuries was toward Petra, not Makka. As evidence for this he attempts to show that dozens of early mosques face Petra with remarkable accuracy. Since his revolutionary ideas ignore what modern scholarship has established about the early qibla, I present an overview of how things actually were. I then show how Gibson has misunderstood most of the data at his disposal, comparing medieval mosque orientations with modern directions of Petra and Makka, and why his interpretation is completely flawed. In brief, he has wrought havoc with information that he cannot master, and has – wittingly or unwittingly – produced an amateurish, non-scholarly document that is both offensive to Muslims and also an insult to mus.lim and Western scholarship. None of the mosques investigated by Gibson has anything to do with Petra. Nor, indeed, has early Islam. - David A King, a real historian.

The religion born in Mecca is still intact even after 1400years.

A long video presentation by Dan Gibson.
1 hours plus long but very interesting for those interested in finding the truth.




For those who wish to investigate whether Mecca is the Mother of all Cities (as depicted in Quran) or could it be Mother of all lies, the above video is a good starting point .
