Here we are meandering through the Arabian Sea...
We had a nice Land Rover so it had lots of room. We whizzed by this monument. Like most countries here, everything to do with water is precious.
Saleh was a Prophet around 500 BC. While some people accepted Saleh, others demanded that he perform a miracle in order to prove his prophethood. They challenged him to produce for them a camel out of the nearby rocks. Saleh prayed and the miracle took place by Allah’s permission. The camel appeared, lived among them, and gave birth to a calf. Some people thus believed in Saleh’s prophethood, while others continued to reject him. Eventually a group among them plotted to attack and kill the camel, and dared Saleh to have God punish them for it. The people were later killed by an earthquake or volcanic eruption.
Job was the hero of the biblical Book of Job. According to the Bible, Job was a man of such devotion, that Satan was allowed by God to test his faith. Job's children were killed, his possessions destroyed and he was afflicted with a plague from head to toe. But to the displeasure of Satan, Job had not expressed anger at God.
Eventually Job was rewarded by God for his devotion, giving to him even more possessions than he had previously. Job died an extremely wealthy man, with many camels and children. Job's tomb in Salalah is where this biblical hero, revered by Muslims, Jews and Christians worldwide, is said to have been laid to rest.
