I heard the Dome of the Rock was built on the site where the Holy of Holies was, and that also it is on the site where the Third Temple will descend from heaven to earth. So will the Dome of the Rock be obliterated when Moshiach comes?

    @doubleAA Because you can't have anything there that is not part of the plan. – HaLeiVi Mar 22 '16 at 4:07

    @HaLeiVi Oh? How do you know that? Which plan? – Double AA Mar 22 '16 at 4:09

    @HaLeiVi Isn't that talking about the Mizbeach? The rest of the place doesn't have fixed dimensions. Look how much it differed the second time around. IAE that talks about plans given to David, which are not the same as the third temple, the full plans of which we don't yet have. – Double AA Mar 22 '16 at 5:19

    @sabbahillel How do you know that? What does a mosque have to do with anything? (note the Dome of the Rock is not a mosque) – Double AA Mar 22 '16 at 14:43

    @sabbahillel Not to mention that not everyone believes it will descend intact from heaven. judaism.stackexchange.com/q/65130/4940 – magicker72 Mar 22 '16 at 20:17

According to our sources Islam will become obsolete because Islam was based on false prophecy as explained here.

Hence there will be no need for it as nobody will be Muslim. The only use would be as a museum, and there's no reason to think that will be the case, especially since this will be prime real estate near or on the Third Temple area.

    Thanks for your edit, which clarified how this answers the question. So you think every building in the world will be destroyed unless we have a known use for it? Would you (nowadays) destroy the house of someone who dies, assuming his heirs have homes already? – msh210 Mar 22 '16 at 13:09
  • @msh210 and you dont think theres a difference between a building on the temple mount and one in china? – ray Mar 22 '16 at 22:04

    lots of downvotes but no good explanation why this is not a perfectly valid answer. perhaps not PC? – ray Mar 22 '16 at 22:15

    @ray PC has nothing to do with it (even if telling yourself that allows you to dismiss legitimate criticism). 3 people commented to explain what the problem they had was. The main issue IMO with this answer is it fails to support it's implied claim that when the Temple is rebuilt nobody will be Muslim. In any event, what will happen then is just your speculation anyway. – Double AA Mar 22 '16 at 22:25
  • (re your comment addressed to me) You haven't explained any such difference in your answer post. Without that in there, it's a very weak answer. – msh210 Mar 23 '16 at 0:07
