‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) refuses to offer Salah in a church

Question

Please provide the reference of the incident of ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) entering Baytul Maqdis and refusing to read Salah inside a church.

 

Answer

This incident is cited in Tarikh Ibn Khaldun. I have not come across a chain of narrators for this incident and therefore cannot verify the authenticity.

(Tarikh Ibn Khaldun, pg. 437. Also see: Sahih Bukhari, before Hadith: 434)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
