Saad b Abu Waqas Tomb / Mosque

Saad b Abi Waqas is Prophet Muhammad's uncle." Although modern secular scholars don't find any historical evidence that Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas actually visited China,[4] they agree that the first Muslims must have arrived to China within the 7th century,[4] and that the major trade centers, such as Guangzhou, Quanzhou, and Yangzhou probably already had their first mosques built during the Tang Dynasty, even though no reliable sources attesting to their actual existence has been found so far." from Wikipedia.

Local believe that Saad b Abi Waqas was lay to rest here.Al Fatihah.
