I see the same pattern, and the same temple. It may appear in a different way from the outside, because people started building with stones etc. But it always had a place where to sacrifice the animals etc.

In the Tawrat, Zabur and Injeel etc. i read about 3 different Temples in details. The details are so detailed, that even the details about how it should be build are found in the Scriptures. Inch by Inch.

Moses build one. Solomon build one. And one was there when Jesus the Messiah was on earth.

Now the Quran also speaks about a Temple. And it was build by Abraham right? If i am correct? So it was build before that of Moses, Solomon and Jesus.

Since it was build in that time, what kind of value does it have in our time? Since that one that was build after Abraham, by Moses doesn't have any value at the moment. And since that one build by Solomon doesn't have any value at the moment. And since that one that was build around the time of Jesus, is already destroyed.

It seems that they all were destroyed. But what amazes me is that the Saudis still claim to have one? But i don't see any family serving in the Temple, and sacrificing animals? Like the family of Levi, those who served in the Temples from Isaacs line? It was even forbidden for other families to enter it etc., read the Previous Scriptures for details.

So my question is, does the Quran mention a certain family/blood line that should serve in the Temple? If it was been build by Ishmael and Abraham? And also interesting, what happened with the Original Temple, since it's already more then 3000-4000 years ago?

I think i understand the concept of Hajj, and Masjid Al Haraam etc. It's the same in the Injeel, Zabur and the Tawrat. It's the same in all those Scriptures. People went to the Temple/Beyt, offered their sacrifices/animals/food, to give thanks, or for atonement for their sins, mainly for their sins. That's by the way why the Messih was sent, to be the ultimate sacrifice, for all those who believed in him etc.

But now i ask myself, what about Hajj, to those places? What i learned from the Injeel, is that since the Temple would be destroyed, it was actually prophecied, there was always the Temple in Heaven that was build by God Himself, instead of men. Should we perform the spiritual Hajj to the Temple in Heaven? Or to the places where the Temples stood on earth?

That also explains the change in direction of prayer. Since i read that he looked up into the sky? Why would he look up into the sky? Since the Temple is in Heaven?

Anyways, a lot to learn. And a lot to think about. I think i am on the correct way, by reading both Scriptures. May the Lord protect me and guide me.
One God, many different Messengers, but One Message.
