Petra is the Original Mecca – Mecca – In Search of a Place – Episode 13
Al Fadi and Dr. Jay put the evidence of the series altogether to make a conclusive perspective on the true origins and history of Mecca. Mecca seemingly has no place in Islamic history. The geographical evidence pertaining to the Qu’ran, qiblas, and many Islamic traditions point to the ancient city of Petra and locations in Northern Iraq, neither of which support Islamic historical claims. All the evidence is in all the wrong places debunking the city of Mecca as a religiously significant city and great historical trade center.
