Mecca is Insignificant – The Search for Muhammad – Episode 15

Mecca is regarded as the historical center of Islam and its traditions, yet Mecca is only a shadow of the great northern city of Petra which was the religious center in the ancient world. Likewise, the Islamic pilgrimage was also simply a copy of Petra’s religious practices while the Qur’anic Arabic also proves to originate in Petra. These facts again point to the many discrepancies of the Islamic traditions which are based much too far south than the historical data allows. Watch as Al Fadi and Dr. Jay discuss the historical significance of Petra and the historical insignificance of Mecca.
