Another thing missing from this thread is an appreciation of sarcasm.

Proselytizing is present and accounted for. Maybe we should give Sarcasm a call, and his brother, Dry-wit too.

baca is mentioned in the quran
"Verily, the first house (of worship) appointed for mankind was that in Bakka (Mecca), full of blessing, and guidance for all people." Quran 3:96

and also mentioned in the bible
"Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well, the rain also filleth the pools." (Psalm 84:6)


and the house of Allah is in baca (Makkah saudi arabia))
and the Pilgrims go to baca
and baca is a valley
and it has a well "ZAMZAM"

notice the similarity in baca in the bible and the actual place and events that muslims practice .
that should help you to believe.

So because two different place names mentioned in two different sources happen to sound alike, that's "proof" of them being one and the same? Hmmm...let me think about that...

London, England is actually the same thing as London, Ontario!

Except you are not mentioning, Abraham was 1000 miles away, and nobody inhabited Mecca prior to the 4th century.

And BTW, Baka is in what is now called Palestine.

Nowhere near what is now Mecca


And we need to know when Mecca got it's name, maybe you can help, with references.

There are many names for Makkah, such as

and also mentioned in the bible
Bakkah,
Al-Bayt Al-`Atiq (the Ancient House),
Al-Bayt Al-Haram (the Sacred House),
Al-Balad Al-Amin (the City of Safety)
and Al-Ma'mun (Security).
Umm Rahm (Mother of Mercy),
Umm Al-Qura (Mother of the Towns)

Baca is mentioned in The Holy Quran
"Verily, the first house (of worship) appointed for mankind was that in Bakka (Mecca), full of blessing, and guidance for all people." Quran 3:96
and also mentioned in the bible
"Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well, the rain also filleth the pools." (Psalm 84:6)


in Mecca
1- The house of Allah
2- it has the well of Zamzam
3- pilgrims come to Mecca from all over the world
4- Mecca is also called Bakka


Where in the world is a place called Bakka and it has the house of Allah and it has a well and people make
pilgrimages
