|Location: Nabeeh Saleh Island||
|Description/Background: The island of Nabeeh Saleh, or Okol as it was known previously, was always known for its fertile land and beautiful location. It attracted kings because of the wealth they could get from the agriculture. And Islamic thinkers took advantage of its distance from the cities and quite environment.|
Historical story of place: Shaikh Saleh used to pray his Morning, Maghreb and Isha prayers behind a great "A'alem" in his time. One day, Shaikh Saleh's wife came to this A'lem and said: "My husband goes out in the middle of the night and comes back after the morning prayer 3 days a week. When I ask him where he has been he says nothing. The A'lem promised to look into the matter. The next day, he called Shaikh Saleh and asked him not go out at night or at least tell his wife why and where he went. Shaikh Saleh nodded his head but still he would go out at night without telling anyone and come back after the morning prayer. On the 3rd night the same thing happened. When the A'lem returned home he started thinking why Shaikh Saleh insisted on saying nothing when asked where he would go at night, so the A'lem decided to follow him and see where he would go. That night he saw Shaikh Saleh going to Masjid Alghebbeh, he waited outside until the Shaikh came out. Then Shaikh Saleh reached the shore of the island, took off his robe, and placed it on the surface of the water. The A'lem did the same and after reaching the other side he saw Shaikh Saleh taking his robe and placing it on his shoulders once again. After walking a few steps he could see a group of people sitting in a circle. They welcomed Shaikh Saleh and sat quietly as he gave them a lesson which was of a very high standard and value.
The next day the A'lem met Shaikh Saleh in the mosque and asked him to pray alongside him. Because of his moderation, Shaikh Saleh refused to pray beside such a great A'lem. After insisting and telling Shaikh Saleh that he had been with him the other night, he prayed beside the A'lem but whispered in his ear his "will". The A'lem was amazed but said nothing. After the prayer, Shaikh Saleh asked of Allah to take his soul so that nobody else would know of his secret especially crossing the water with his robe. The people in the mosque saw that Shaikh Saleh wasn't moving in his Sojood for a long time, when they tried moving him they found out that he was dead. The A'lem felt really depressed but nevertheless did as Shaikh Saleh had told him and buried him appropriately.
