In Response To: Debunking 'Petra' fallacy (abdalaziz ariff / indiana)

• The Christian evangelists continue to discredit Islam by raising the controversial questions on the original location of the Kaaba. Geographically, both Jerusalem and Petra are North of Medina while the Kaaba is in the South of Medina. The majority of Muslims follow the teachings and commandments of the Holy Quran and do not indulge in useless controversies created by the enemies of Islam. Whether Kaaba is located at its right or original place, should not be a matter of their concern.

• The Holy Prophet built the Mosque in Medina under his supervision in 622 CE. The Mosque was laid out such that it had three doors, (باب الرحمة ) to the South, (باب جبريل) to the west and (باب النساء) to the east. The first Qiblah wall was facing north towards Jerusalem.

• Allah ordered to change the direction of prayer towards Mecca in 624 CE. Caliph Uthman later rebuilt the Mosque from the ground up, facing Kaaba in the South.
