The Kabaa was not a hindu temple nor it was build by any hindu but instead was build by Prophet Abraham and Ishamel. It is stated in Quran
"And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) and (his son) Isma'il (Ishmael) were raising the foundations of the House (the Ka'bah at Makkah), (saying), "Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Verily! You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. "Our Lord! And make us submissive unto You and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manasik (all the ceremonies of pilgrimage - Hajj and 'Umrah, etc.), and accept our repentance. Truly, You are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. "Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own (and indeed Allah answered their invocation by sending Muhammad Peace be upon him ), who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book (this Quran) and Al-Hikmah (full knowledge of the Islamic laws and jurisprudence or wisdom or Prophethood, etc.), and sanctify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise."" [2:127-129]
Through the above verses we know that Kaba was not a Hindu temple but was built by Abraham and Ishmael. Though one should know the Muslims do not worship Kabaa nor claim it to be God.
Makkah And Hajj (Pilgrimage) In Bible
After the demise of Prophet Ishmael his descendants which were Arabs corrupted the religion of Abraham and started idol worship as happened with the nation of every Prophet when he went to Heavenly abode. It is stated in the Qur'an that this was the first house that was built for humanity to worship Allah.
Abraham prayed to God to make Kabaa a place of worship and that nations were to become to Kabaa to honor the God.
"Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful." [2:128]

Now we learn the Abraham and Ishmael build the Kaba and prayed that people would come here to worship Allah, which actually happens yearly on Hajj [Pilgrimage].Some anti-Islamics tried to compare the Muslims' bowing towards the Kaaba to the hindus' deification and glorification of their stones, by making idol gods and holy temples for these gods out of them. Islam is far from this! The hindus glorifi
cation of stones and rocks is not Islamic. We do not worship neither the Kaaba nor the black stone. In fact Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said in his famous saying that
"Demolishing the Kaaba completely is much more preferred to Allah Almighty than shedding the blood of a Believing Muslim." [Source]
Facing to the Kaba does not mean we are worshipping Kabaa. The Jewish people also turn to Temple Mount for prayers does it means that they are Pagan? No
The Black Stone has had an interesting history during the Islamic period. In 930 AD a ruler of Bahrain - who belonged to a branch of Ismailism known as the Karmatians - sacked Makkah and carried the Black Stone away for some 70 years until it was ransomed. In the process, the Black Stone was cracked. It is now held together by a silver band. The fact that Islam was able to function without the Black Stone for 70 years is one of the best illustrations that it is but a marker for Tawaaf - and NOT an object of worship.
The thing really happened was that religion of Abraham and Ishamel had corrupted by the Arabs to such a extent that they even started praising and worshipping Abraham and Ishmael
Narrated Ibn Abbas: "When the Prophet saw pictures in the Ka'ba, he did not enter it till he ordered them to be erased. When he saw the pictures of Abraham and Ishmael carrying the arrows of divination, he said, "May Allah curse them (i.e. the Quraish)! By Allah, neither Abraham nor Ishmael practiced divination by arrows."
[Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Prophets, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 571]
The Prophecy of the yearly pilgrimage to Mecca in the Noble Quran:
"Behold! We gave the site, To Abraham, of the (Sacred) House [That is the Kaaba that he built], (Saying): 'Associate not anything (In worship) with Me; And sanctify My House For those who compass it round, Or stand up, Or bow, or prostrate themselves (Therein in prayer). And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel, lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways;" (The Noble Quran, 22:26-27)
As we clearly see in the Noble Verses, Allah Almighty promised Abraham peace be upon him that He will cause for people from all around the world to come and proclaim the pilgrimage to the House (Kaaba) that he built.
The story began, when Abraham took Hagar and Ishmael to the city of Paran (Mecca), based on Allah Almighty's commands. There was literally no life there; not even water. Allah Almighty then ordered Abraham to build the House of GOD (Kaaba) and leave Hagar and his son Ishmael there. When later Hagar and Ishmael became very thirsty after they ran out of the water they brought with them in the journey, Hagar prayed to Allah Almighty to provide water for them. Hagar then started to desperately run to search for water seven times (I believe) back and forth between the Safa and Marwa hills. Allah Almighty then caused Ishmael to rub his feet against the sand and a pool of water, the water of Zumzum came out.
This Prophecy of Allah Almighty sending people from all over the world to Mecca is fulfilled every single year in Saudi Arabia through the Muslims' yearly pilgrimage, where one to three million Muslims come to perform the Hajj (pilgrimage).
Muslims do not worship the Kabaa like the hindus did
Volume 2, Book 26, Number 667:
Narrated 'Abis bin Rabia: Umar came near the Black Stone and kissed it and said "NO DOUBT, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE A STONE AND CAN NEITHER BENEFIT ANYONE NOR HARM ANYONE. Had I not seen Allah's Apostle kissing you I would not have kissed you."
Hence we conclude
- Kabaa was not build by any hindu or pagan but by Prophet Abraham and Ishamel and is older them Temple Mount
- The Muslims does not worship the black stone
- Abraham prayer was accepted by Allah when he prayed that nation would come here and submit to him Makkah And Hajj (Pilgrimage) In Bible
- Before Prophet Muhamamd the Arabs corrupted the religion of Abraham and Paganism was mixed into it
- The black stone is only a direction for Muslim to pray
- Arabs were the descendants of Abraham
