Wahb bin Kabshah (RadiAllahu Anhu)- A hero who lived his faith with passion.

The tomb of this blessed companion is in China. The Prophet (SalAllahu Alaihi Wassallam) sent him to China with the duty of propagating Islam. But at that time it used to take one year to reach China from Madina. After reaching China and staying there for a long time spreading Islam, he set out on the road back to Madina in order to satisfy, albeit slightly, the longing he had to see the Messenger of Allah (SalAllahu Alaihi Wassallam). After an arduous journey that took one year he arrived in Madina. But alas he was unable to see the blessed Prophet (SalAllahu Alaihi Wassallam) as he had passed away. He returned to China, his longing having increased even more. This he did in order to complete the sacred duty he was commanded to do by Allah’s Messenger (SalAllahu Alaihi Wassallam). He passed away while carrying out this duty. In this way, Wahb bin Kabshah (RadiAllahu Anhu) was honoured with being the first representative of Allah’s Messenger (SalAllahu Alaihi Wassallam) in China. His mortal body remained in China however his eternal spirit went to the enlightened Madina to be together with the spirit of the Messenger of Allah (SalAllahu Alaihi Wassallam).
