The Sacred City

85 Minute Documentary Film

Glasshouse Media


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 Qur’an 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 Mohammed’s original holy city – as detailed in the Qur’an 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 gathering place.’

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 came about.

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 world’s 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.
