Tucked away within ancient trees and surrounded by towering walls, the tomb of Saʿd ibn Abī Waqqās, sometimes referred to locally as the Shrine of Islamic Sage in Guangzhou, China, welcomes droves of visitors regularly to its hallowed grounds.
Some arrive to participate in religious services on site and to pay homage to their faith. But most come to pay respect to the missionary who first brought Islam to China over 1,000 years ago, who is said to have been laid to rest here.
