The kaaba and Masjidul Aqsa

Question ID: 26573

Assalamu alaikum,
Respected Mufti Sahab,
1. Sir I want to know whether Kaabah Sharif was built first or Masjid-e-Aqsa?

2) I have heard that all the ambiyas has contributed to build the Kaaba and finally our beloved Nabi (PBUH). I have also heard that the Kaaba was from the time of Hazrat Aadam Alaihis Salam, so a question is coming into my mind that if the Kaabah was present there then why was our first qiblah Masjid e Aqsa and not the Kaabah.

2. Is Masjid e Aqsa also called Baitul Muqaddas or Baitul Muqaddas is diffrent. Is it the same Masjid which was built by the Jinns with the order of Hazrat Sulaiman Alaihis Sala?
Please tell me the details about these.

Jazzak Allah!

1) Kaabah.

2) Because the Ambiyaa (A.S) prior to our Nabi (S.A.W) faced Al-Aqsa as their Qibla.

3) Yes. For details on Baytul Muqaddas source our translation of 'Virtues of Baytul Muqaddas'.
