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

The Rambam at the end of melachim umilchamoseihem says that when Moshiach comes all the muslims and notzrim will realize that their ancetors have been teaching them lies and falsities, and will realize the error of their ways -- and he also says that Moshaich will gather all of th other nations under the one Hashem + Torah etc., so its clar there will be no other religions, from the Rambam, hilchos melach hamashiach (end of melachim umilchamoseihem) -- see there for details, but its all in there.

Also Rashi says in Sukkah that the 3rd temple will descend from shamayim to its original place, so obviously we will also need to make room for the 3rd temple.

So 1) there wil be no other religions besides for the One True Hashem and his Torah AKA Judaism + Noahidism (SEE RAMBAM above for sources on that), so obviously there will not only be no more need for it, but it will be a stumbling block for the masses, and everyone will know its not true etc.

    Why would it be a stumbling block if everyone knows it's not true? – Double AA Aug 26 '19 at 19:45
  • @DoubleAA did you read the rambam? If so you wouldnt be asking that – wow ow Aug 26 '19 at 19:47
  • Did you write a clear and understable answer? If so I wouldn't be asking that. – Double AA Aug 26 '19 at 19:54
  • @DoubleAA Yes I did -- do you really think that muslims will still xist when moshiach comes?? What question is there? – wow ow Aug 26 '19 at 19:56

    You keep saying that things other people don't know are obviously so to you. That doesn't help anyone else. That's not how communication works. We don't know you that we should trust you. – Double AA Aug 26 '19 at 19:59

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
