在Manah的Az al Qadim 清真寺裡流傳了這麼一個傳說，一位遠到而來的陌生訪客搬動了一塊巨石來到此清真寺做休息，隔夜起來卻發現這塊巨石己經在清真寺裡，而這塊巨石目前仍然可以在Az al Qadim找到並且還留有這個人的足印呢。
Manah is thought to be the first resting place of Malik bin Fahim al Azdi before the Arabs entered Oman when the Maa'rab Dam in Yemen broke. A falaj in Manah still bears his name. In the old town, there are many caves which were said to be hiding places during the war for women and children. There is also a subterranean vault located in one of the ancient houses in Al Fiqin. Legend surrounds the Az al Qadim mosque: it is said that a 100kg rock was moved by a visitor to the mosque, which he took with him on his travels south. The next day, upon waking, the man noticed the rock had gone, only to be found back in the mosque. The rock still lies in the mosque and has the imprint of a man's foot on it. Sultan Qaboos' Royal Camp for inspection of the region of Dakhliyah lies at Seih al Barakat in Manah.
