Hazrat ‘Afeef Kindi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a friend of Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). He was an ‘itr merchant by trade. Due to his trade, he would often travel to Yemen.

Hazrat ‘Afeef Kindi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says, “I was once in Mina with Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) when a man arrived. This man first performed wudhu in an excellent manner and then stood to perform salaah. Thereafter, a woman appeared, performed wudhu in the same manner and also stood to perform salaah. A little while later, an eleven-year-old boy arrived. He also performed wudhu and stood to perform salaah at the side of this man.

I asked Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “What religion is this?” He replied, “This is the Deen of my nephew, Muhammed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), who says that Allah Ta‘ala has made him a Rasul. This youngster is also my nephew and a follower of this Deen. This woman is the wife of Muhammed bin ‘Abdillah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

Hazrat ‘Afeef Kindi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) later on embraced Islam. He would often lament, “If only I was the fourth person to embrace Islam.”
