You can try using this page:
http://www.satsig.net/maps/lat-long-finder.htm

Select the wanted NSS6 satellite in the pull down menu.

Put your mouse over the Middle East area and double click.
Click on the + sign to magnify the map.
Repeat with the mouse on Saudi Arabia and try to find your location.  I have only marked a few cities so far. Switch to the Satellite view option to see the ground.

The dish pointing angles should show at the lower left.

I can make a special page just for Saudi Arabia if you want.  It will start with the centre and magnification set suitably and we can add in as many cities and towns as you want.   See this example for Iraq http://www.satsig.net/maps/satellite-dish-pointing-iraq.htm
The map loads much faster if the total number of city markers is 10 to 30 rather than 200 - 300 as for the whole world.
