Abel Beth Maacah:The Real Mecca of the Quran and Bible
Abel Beth Maacah: The Real Mecca of the Qur’an and Bible
I want to establish that the Israelites had a Mecca before the modern day Saudi Arabian, Mecca existed. The Israelite’s Mecca was located in modern day Lebanon and it was adjacent to the Beca Valley. This place is called Abel Beth Maccah, Abel meaning brook, Beth meaning house, and Maccah meaning pressure. Abel Beth Maccah is the real Mecca of our Qur’an and Bible. There is only one verse in the Qur’an that mentions Mecca by name.
48:24 And it is He who withheld their hands from you and your hands from them within [the area of] Makkah after He caused you to overcome them. And ever is God of what you do, Seeing.
The biblical city Maacah has the same pronunciation as the one time mentioned Qur’anic one. They both are pronounced Makkah. The most important thing is location one can’t say Abraham lived near a place he never traveled too. Below is a map of ancient Mecca of your scripture I’m here to make known these things to my people to renew their faith in God.
Abel Beth Maccah
According to scriptures Abel Beth Maacah was a place one would go to get answers, a inheritance of the Lord, and a Mother City to Israel. Make note that Mecca and Becca are not the same word they are near each other but in totally different areas. One is a city and the other is a valley both are places near Jerusalem.
2 Samuel 20:14-20
18Then she said, “They used to say in former times, ‘Let them but ask counsel at Abel,’ and so they settled a matter. 19 I am one of those who are peaceable and faithful in Israel. You seek to destroy a city that is a mother in Israel. Why will you swallow up the heritage of the Lord?” 20Joab answered, “Far be it from me, far be it, that I should swallow up or destroy!
The Qur’an never stated that the Kaaba was built in Mecca. It only mentions Mecca once by name. In the earlier scriptures Maacah is a city a mother city in Israel and it is a place near the valley of Becca. These places are actual places Abraham traveled. Abel Beth Maacah is a heritage of the Lord. This makes it a ancient city that the Lord has tides with from old. Beth means house just as Bayt means house. Maacah is your hebrew way of saying Makkah. In the Qur’an Mecca is spelled Makkah.Now we have Makkah(Ma ka a) and Maacah (Ma ka a) same sounds.
Valley of Becca found in the Qur’an
The first sanctuary for mankind according to the Qur’an was at a place called Becca.. Understand the verse never mentions the Kaaba by name. Becca is not Mecca many people take these words to be one in the same to fit their argument of saying the structure in Saudi Arabia is an ancient sanctuary built by Abraham. The sanctuary is in the location of Becca not Mecca in the Qur’an.
Qur’an 3:96 Lo! the first Sanctuary appointed for mankind was that at Becca, a blessed place, a guidance to the peoples;
Psalms 84:6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
We all know that David who wrote the psalms did not live in Saudi Arabia. He spoke about Baca as a place with rain and pools not a desert area. Sunni Muslims say that the place in Saudi Arabia was built by Adam and renewed by Abraham. This can’t be true because we have a Becca location in the earlier scripture which is closer to where Abraham lived. When the Qur’an says Becca it’s talking about a rainy valley in Lebanon not a place in the desert.
Muhammad did not live in the false Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Below is a map of where the tribes of Ishmael lived. During the time of Abraham their were no cars or planes. So, how did Abraham travel to Mecca every year when he lived in Hebron? Through research you can clearly see that the Mecca, Saudi Arabia was over 1,000 miles away from where Abraham lived. Abraham live in Hebron and Ishmael lived in the desert of Paran next to Egypt. Ishmael married Egyptian wives. Mecca, Saudi Arabia was a no man’s land very remote at the time. Abraham never traveled that far south just to drop off Hagar and a child in the middle of no where. The Ishmaelites lived around and beside the Israelites. You can see Qedar’s tribal land is no where near the traditional Mecca.
The language Arabic developed from Aramaic in northern Arabia as well and most of the ancient cities in the Qur’an are located in northern Arabia. Muhammad lived in northern Arabia where he was in very close proximity to the Israelite people. These tribes all migrated into Africa where they live today some with different names.
Now Bakkata and Makkata are not the same word or place. Baca is a valley in Lebanon. Makkata was a Mother City of refuge and counsel for Abraham’s people. The Mecca and Baca of the Qur’an are the Baca valley and Abel Beth Maacah. Kaaba, Mecca, Saudi Arabia did not exist during the time of Muhammad or Abraham. They do not know the time when Muhammad lived because they do not have the original Qur’an. So, again Muhammad lived in northern Arabia around Israelites and his tribe that is what we can conclude from our studies. I am a messenger of God sent to help make clear somethings you need to know. Study and test what I write and you will be amazed. This information will set the people free from cultural bondage.I do not ask you for any money this information is free.
