Muhammed aal Talib from the students of Sheikh Muhammed bin Ibrahim
Rahimahullah and he moved to the Eastern province for like almost 30
years then returned to Riyadh to a place called 'Dalam'.
Saleh finished Quran memorisation before his coming of age. He graduated from the College of Shariah in Riyadh in 1414 AH, then did his Masters, which he completed in 1417 AH. Whilst he was doing his masters he started work in the high court in Riyadh and then in Riyadh too he was appointed judge in this place called "Turba" which is near Taif for almost 2 years then in "Rabg" for 2 years and then the high court of Mecca in the year 1423.
He participated in a Saudi mission (delegation) in an international conference.[which?] It was held in the International Court of Justice in Lahay, Holland. He also joined in a conference held in the League of Arab States in Cairo. The object of such a participation was to justify the legality of some proposals. He with 3 others went for a doctorate in international law from Britain. This qualifies him to represent the country in international issues (law related).
Saleh is known for his
qualification in his jurisdiction, his work (how he judges) and his
firmness in solving cases and there was some corruption in courts which
lasted for some years: the result in this was that many judges were
forced to quit. And only in a few months period he showed excellent
performance which was acknowledged by the Higher Court of Magistrates
despite him being only 28 at the time
