I have been told that bait ul maqdis was first qiblah.
When a question was asked to Prophet regarding first mosque, Prophet said first mosque to be built was masjid al haram and after 40 years bait al maqdis was built.
Abu Dhar narrated: I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Which mosque was first built on the surface of the earth?" He said, "Al-Masjid-ul-Haram (in Mecca)." I said, "Which was built next?" He replied "The mosque of Al-Aqsa (in Jerusalem)." I said, "What was the period of construction between the two?" He said, "Forty years." He added, "Wherever (you may be, and) the prayer time becomes due, perform the prayer there, for the best thing is to do so (i.e. to offer the prayers in time)."
Sahih al-Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 55, Hadith Number 585
Since aqsa is not the first mosque, by default it's not the first qiblah and we don't have explicit texts to back up, telling aqsa is first qibla.
Found more evidence that kaaba is lost qibla of bani israel.
Imaam Ahmad reported in his Musnad (6/134-135) from ‘Aa’ishah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said about the People of the Book (Jews and Christians): “They do not envy us for anything as much as they envy us for Yawm al-Jumu’ah (Friday), to which Allaah has guided us and from which they have gone astray, and for the Qiblah to which Allaah has guided us and from which they have gone astray
Was kaaba the original direction of muslims like noah and adam before masjid al aqsa?
