90. At Whose Coming, the Solomon’s Temple was rebuilt: With the coming of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), ALLAH rebuilt the destroyed Temple of Solomon as a sign of His supremacy over all. It was the promise of ALLAH that He will rebuild the Temple to last forever with the coming of His Universal Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) to whom the Jews now called as the King Messiah. As ALLAH says to Jews to believe now in Him and His Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him): “It may be that your Lord (O Children of Israel) will have mercy on you, and if you again return (to disobedience) We too will return (to punishment), and We have appointed hell a dungeon for the disbelievers” – (Quran 17:8).

“As conditions in Judea worsened, these beliefs became more widespread, and hopes for the coming of the Messiah intensified…and…when the Arabs conquered Mesopotamia in 634 C.E., the Jews welcomed them, and a completely new chapter in Jewish history was opened (fulfilling Messianic prophecies) [emphasis added]” – (Understanding Second Temple and Rabbinic Judaism, KTAV Publishing House, Inc., Jersey City, New Jersey, 2003, pp. 254; 344; See also: Joesep Klauzner, The History of the Second Temple, Jerusalem: Ahiassaf, 1952 (in Hebrew), p. 290).
“When Caliph Omar ibn al-Khattab” avows to the context C. T. Benedict “entered the city of Jerusalem in 638, the ruins of the temple were being used as a rubbish dump, by the Christian inhabitants. He had ordered the cleaning of the site and building of a ‘House of Prayer.'”
