After these initial stages of preparation, when it was time to demolish the original structure, nobody had the courage to stand and break down the house of Allah. Eventually, Waleed bin Mugheerah, took a shovel, stood and proclaimed before Allah Ta‘ala:

اللهم لا نريد الا الخير

O Allah! Our intentions are nothing but good (i.e. our intention in breaking the divine house is not evil – Allah forbid)!

Saying this, he commenced demolishing the Ka‘bah in the region of the Hajr-e-Aswad and the Rukn-e-Yamaani. The people of Makkah said, “Let us wait through the night to see that no punishment strikes Waleed. If any natural calamity or disaster befalls him, we will restore the house of Allah Ta‘ala to its former state. Otherwise, we will also assist Waleed in demolishing the present structure.

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/114-115)
