dome of the rock

That’s no ordinary rock, of course. Religious Jews revere it because it’s said to be the place where Abraham, over 100 years old and after hearing voice telling him to sacrifice his son , tied him up and prepared to murder his son Isaac. He was ready to carve up his son  when angels stayed his hand, telling him that the whole thing was just a test from God.
The Muslims  believe that Mohammad mounted a horse and flew to heaven from this rock.
On the year 688 the covering was built by some Muslin leader and was finished in 699. I have spectated that this might be what Daniel saw in his vision and  said it was  some thing that should not be there.
