Al-Zabdiyat, or the Bowl, was a group of mountainous islands located near Masud Jazayir in the Nada al-Hazan achipelago in the Crowded Sea.[1]


The islands of Al-Zabdiyat were crescent shaped laying at the mouth of the Strait of Woe.[1]


Most travelers and sailors avoided these islands because of Khadiga. The sha'ir was known to keep dangerous "pets" that discouraged visitors to her sanctuary.[1]

Rumors and LegendsEdit

A great domed mausoleum made of clear crystal was rumored to rise from the center of the lagoon.[1]
