jerusalem Temple in quran


quran 2:125 commands abraham and ishmael to purify an unspecified ”place of safety” for people to perform tawaf and prostration to Allah.

yet in the REST of the paragraph, 2:145-150, quran CLEARLY commands muslims to CHANGE their qibla TOWARD masjid al Haram in MECCA.

It stands to reason that verse2:125 talks about the original muslim qibla- the Jerusalem Temple, since the end of the paragraph commands muslims to SWITCH from praying toward Jerusalem- toward Mecca.

So, it would seem that children of ishmael are commanded to OPEN and purify the Temple Mt. for JEWS?
