Al-Saleh was the husband of famous Shagaret El-Dorr, who completed the complex after his death in 1949. Later in the Mamluk period the madrasa became a central court where qadis (judges) were hearing cases presented before them.

The place is currently in restoration and not admissible to visitors.
