Muslim tradition teaches that Mecca is the oldest and possibly the greatest of all cities; that Adam and Eve were thrown down to it; that Abraham lived in it; and that this city was where Muhammad came from and received the Qur'an. But what does history and archaeology reveal? This webinar will evaluate the historical record of Mecca, using evidence from the 7th century and before and comparing it with traditional teaching.
