? Some Points! - 07-23-2008, 09:30 AM

This article relates about the Buddhist culture in Maldive! But how and why there have been a culture change is not clear by looking at this paragraph below

Quote:
The year 1153 C.E. proved to be a great turning point
for the religion of those islands. According to a
legend related in the chronicle Tarikh, Sheik Yusuf
Shams-ud-din arrived in the Islands and exorcised the
spirits said to have possessed the King
Theemugy Maha
Kalaminja, a Buddhist.
With relating to the highlighted sentence above, and looking at the history of Maldive this is what have happended! Mohamed Ibn Batuta, a Moroccan traveller who visited the Maldives in the 14th century recorded an interesting legend on how the country converted to Islam. Abul Barakaath Yoosuf Al Barbary, an Islamic scholar, visited the Maldives during a time when people lived in fear of the “Rannamaari”, a sea-demon, who came out of the sea once a month threatening to destroy everything unless a virgin was sacrificed. The unfortunate young girls were chosen by lot, had to stay in a temple near the seashore and were found raped and dead in the morning. The daughter of the house he was staying at had been selected to be the victim and he decided to save her. Disguised as a girl he spent the night in the temple reciting continuously from the Holy Quran. In the morning when people went to find out the fate of the chosen girl they were amazed to find him alive and still reciting the Quran. When the King found out that the demon had been defeated through the power of the Holy Quran he embraced Islam and ordered all the subjects to follow him. So that is how then the king ordered his courtiers to do likewise!

And Also looking at this paragraph

Quote:
He promptly converted to Islam
and ordered his courtiers to do likewise. In a short
time all the inhabitants of the islands had changed
their religion. In this way the Maldives lost its
ancient culture
built up over more than a thousand
years and with it, Buddhism.
This is how the Buddhist Culture faded away and many Maldivians converted to Islam!

Dr. Naik? Please quote the Quran bro. We don't need explanations, words are explanatory itself. That's how Tipitaka, Bible, Vedha or Bhagawat Geetha are read.

That is misleading. WHen the king changed religion, he might have forced others to convert, which has been happening regularly when Muslims invaded countries.

Of course you are right! by Looking at this statement
Quote:
So when the King found out that the demon had been defeated through the power of the Holy Quran he embraced Islam and ordered all the subjects to follow him. So that is how then the king ordered his courtiers to do likewise!
But the way the king force is not known! So the Quran explains it all! So Actually I was telling how the king and the inhabitants converted to Islam!



Quote:
in the Holy Qur’an which says, “Slay
the polytheists wherever you find them” (Qur’an 9:5)



What did you understand by the above Quran Verse? This is how Dr.Zakir Naik explains




Also Islam was the latest religion to be exist to the world! So by that time all other major religions were spreaded! so this is how the Maldivians were introduced to Islam!

Actually 25 prophets (The messenger of the Almighty God) were send by the Almighty God (Allah) in different time periods and places, but it was not a huge success until the last prophet, Muhammad (PBUH) was the one to spread Islam with greater difficulties! However all the 25 prophets revealed the same message was "there is one true God, The Almighty Allah!" (Allah is a arabic term means in english is God!) All the prophets faced the same problem in spreading Islam to the world! That's all about history!
