It’s true, the over the water bungalows are a spectacular sight and those images are what drew us to the Maldives in the first place. I don't think anywhere quite compares with the sheer beauty of Maldives.But are there things to do in Maldives besides relax? We actually ended up having an amazing adventure holiday! The abundance of atolls jutting out of deep blue waters is overwhelming.This Shaykh is the famous Yusuf bin Ahmad al-Kawneyn He is also credited to have been responsible for spreading Islam in the islands, establishing the Hukuru Miskiiy Mosque, and converting the Maldivian population into Islam..This scenario would also help explain the usage of the Arabic language and the predominance of the Maliki school on the islands.
The person traditionally deemed responsible for this conversion was a Sunni Muslim visitor named Abu al Barakat, or more commonly known as the Shaykh Yusuf bin Ahmad al-Kawneyn.Another link to North Africa was the Maliki school of jurisprudence, used throughout most of North Africa, which was the official one in the Maldives until the 17th century.Some scholars have suggested the possibility of Ibn Battuta misreading Maldive texts, and have posited another scenario where this Abu Barakat might have been a native of Berbera, a significant trading port on the north western coast of Somalia.Another interpretation, held by the more reliable local historical chronicles, Raadavalhi and Taarikh, is that Abu Barakat was an Iranian from Tabriz called Yusuf Shamsud-din, also locally known as Tabrīzugefānu (the much venerated tomb of this saint now stands opposite the grounds of Hukuru Miski, in the centre of Malé).In the Arabic script the words al-Barbari and al-Tabrizi are very much alike, owing to the fact that at the time, Arabic had several consonants that looked identical and could only be differentiated by overall context (this has since changed by addition of dots above or below letters to clarify pronunciation – For example, the letter "B" in modern Arabic has a dot below, whereas the letter "T" looks identical except there are two dots above it).
