- Canadian Historian claims Muslims
Facing Wrong Direction
Canadian researcher Dan Gibson claims
that Muslims are praying in the wrong direction. In a newly released
documentary film he presents his arguments using archeology,
satellite photography, and ancient manuscripts. Beautifully filmed
in the Middle East, The Sacred City is a detective
story that investigates the dawn of Islam, uncovering evidence
that is slowly shaking the Muslim world. Using satellite imaging
and the latest technologies Canadian historian Dan Gibson has
uncovered compelling evidence that challenges traditional accounts
of how Islam began.
Gibson suggests the Islamic holy city of Mecca came later in
history, and that the worlds 1.6 billion Muslims are praying
in the wrong direction. The Quran commands them to pray
towards the forbidden gathering place. Gibson provides
archeological and historic evidence that this place is not in
Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
In this startling and original documentary, writer and historian
Dan Gibson demonstrates that descriptions of Mohammeds
original holy city as detailed in the Quran and
Islamic histories, do not match that of the Mecca we know today.
Then using the Qibla direction of the first ancient mosques,
Gibson discovers the location of the original forbidden
This film sets out evidence from within Islamic sources
while also using modern technologies - to track down the biggest
secret of the last fifteen hundred years. Gibson not only finds
the location of the original Mecca but also provides a convincing
argument as to how such a great misunderstanding in Islamic history
While clearly controversial, The Sacred City is
respectful of Islam but shows how a deliberate attempt was made
to hide secrets that impact every Muslim today. The evidence
is compelling and fascinating. In a time when the worlds
agenda is being set by Islam, it is important for the origins
and history of this world religion to be examined afresh. This
is a ground breaking documentary film with world-wide appeal
for both religious and secular audiences.
