The Day Maldives Embraced Islam is celebrated on March 18th. Abdul Barakaath Yoosuf Al Barbary, an Islamic scholar, visited the Maldives during a time when people lived in fear of the “Rannamaari”, a sea-demon. He came out of the sea once a month to destroy everything unless a virgin was sacrificed. The unfortunate young girls were chosen to stay in a temple near the seashore and were found raped and dead in the morning. He was staying been selected to be the victim and he decided to save her.
