This book contains all of the data behind the documentary
film The Sacred City.
Viewers of this film can now check the background data for themselves
and investigate further arguments that were not included in the
film. Complete with hundreds of images, charts, maps and footnotes,
this volume clearly challenges traditionally held Islamic history.
Early Islamic Qiblas
New archeological evidence clearly demonstrates that early
Islamic mosques were not erroneously oriented as previously thought.
Using modern technology and satellite imaging, Canadian historian
Dan Gibson has discovered that early Islamic mosques were oriented
to four different places. And they are not where Islam expects
them to be.
For the first time in history Dan Gibson has undertaken a
comprehensive survey of Islamic mosques from the first two centuries
of Islam. Using this data, Gibson demonstrates that Muhammad
and the first four caliphs all prayed towards a different place!
This location was also the focus of their pilgrimage. Gibson
believes that Muslims are disobeying their prophet by focusing
their prayers on a Black Stone in Saudi Arabia, when the Quran
commands them to face the original location.
