Islamic Culture and Tradition in Maldives


Mohammed Ibn Batuta, a Moroccan traveler who explored Maldives in the 14th century marked a concerning fable on how the whole country of Maldives converted to Islam. Abul Barakaath Yoosuf Al Barbary, an Islamic scholar, visited the country during a time when people lived in fear of the famous sea demon “Rannamaari”, who appeared of the sea once a month ominous to destruct everything unless a virgin was sacrificed. The inauspicious young girls were selected by lot, had to stay in a temple near the seacoast and were discovered raped and dead in the morning. The daughter of the house he (Abul Barakaath Yoosuf Al Barbary) was occupying had been selected to be the victim and he resolved to save her. Cloaked as a girl he exhausted the night in the temple reciting continuously from the Holy Quran. In the morning time when people went to find out the destiny of the chosen girl they were puzzled to find him alive and still reciting the Holy Quran. When the King discovered that the monster had been overcame through the power of the Holy Quran he (the King) embraced Islam and ordered all the people of Maldives to follow him.
