Orthodox Churches in Saudi Arabia
Details of the QuestionI heard a story some time ago that I want to verify. I heard that at one point, some people were trying to capture or kill Muhammad and he took refuge in an Orthodox Church. The Church took him in, gave him robes and a false identity to shield him during the search. This impressed him so much that Muhammed granted the permission to have one Orthodox Church in all cities in Saudi Arabia, with the exception of Mecca. Is this story true in any part? Thanks,
