Would you kindly show me a verse in the Quran where the NAMED Jerusalem was changed to the NAMED Mecca with regard to the qibla? If you cannot, and I have checked, then Aidad’s understanding of what qibla means is incorrect and needs improving. Search the forum for discussions on this word and then let me know what you have learned.
The Quran confirms what truth is left in the previous scriptures; we do not need previous scriptures to confirm the Quran, so Aidad is following falsehood to prove his point. There is some debate to be had over the word Kaaba, amongst others, but to turn this into a Mickey Mouse understanding that Bacca is near Jerusalem, or the valley of Petra is wrong [Aidad, if I am not mistaken, believed in this as well, which I am recalling from visiting the freeminds website a few years ago].
Anyway, Aidad has rejected the 19 fiasco and criticises Edip Yuksel, so he does have some common sense. Edip is the man who had all the answers to my post about his book “19 Nineteen: God's Signature in Nature and Scripture by Edip Yuksel (Jan 2011)” but did not provide them! I am still waiting!
