Great Character !!

Second Caliph of Islam Hazrat Umar visited Jerusalem, He continued to pray in open grounds,
although Pope Severinusgave offered him the key to the city and
invited him to pray in the Church of Holy Sepulcher
But Hazrat Umar feared that Muslims might start converting churches into Masjids,
so he politely declined. If a Masjid were present, he would have prayed there !!
