Nabi Salih, al-

NABI SALIH, AL-

uninhabited island in the bahrain archipelago of the persian/arabian gulf.

Lying some two and one half miles (4 km) to the southeast of Bahrain's capital, Manama, al-Nabi Salih is situated midway between the island of alAwal and the island of Sitra. Extensive date-palm gardens covered al-Nabi Salih in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Sizable groves remain along the western and northern shores, watered by several natural springs. Bahraini Shiʿa revere the large pool at the center of the island, as well as the tomb of the local saint, Salih, from whom the island takes its name.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
