Maldives History and Islam
Islam in the Maldives dates back to the year 1153
AD. At that point in time, The Maldives got
converted to Islamic Maldives by one of the
Muslims from the Maghreb. Islam in the Maldives
has been popular since then. Even after Islam was
adopted by the people, the Muslim leader stayed
here so that he could teach the rightful Islamic
principles to the people. Being a 100 percent
Muslim country, Islam is the state religion of
the Maldives. Since it has become the state
religion, the citizens have a legal enforcement
to follow it.  Islam has become so entrenched in
the culture of the Maldives now, that anyone not
adhering to Muslim custom is treated as
Non-Citizen.

Traditions
This day is of great importance. It is supposed
to signify Islamic Unity. On this day, the
Ministry of Home Affairs organises a lot of
activities which include various religious
ceremonies, lectures as well as
speeches. Villages celebrate in their own way,
which includes lectures that talk about the
conversion to Islam. This is also in order to
promote the unity of religions in the whole
country.

Food in the Maldives
Since almost all the people follow Islam in The
Maldives, non-vegetarian food is popular. The
Maldives is a littoral state and thus, obviously,
a lot of seafood is found to be part of the
Maldivian diet. The staple food is naturally rice
and fish. These foods are also a popular source
of protein there. Also, the popular meal
delicacy is canut with Betal Lead, lime, also
known as foh and cloves which can be chewed after
meals. Islam in the Maldives is so important that
once the government had to order the destruction
of some artwork as the court ruled it to be a
threat to Islamic unity. And according to them it
also disrupted the peace and interests of the
Maldivian state. To know more, please visit-
