Avoid Valentines Day

The Pagan Romans used to celebrate this event in mid-February each year with a big festival named as Lupercalia. This festival was filled with all sorts of promiscuities and sexual wantonness.

The pagan R...oman emperor Claudius II decreed in the third century CE that soldiers should not get married, because marriage would distract them from the wars. This decree was opposed by Saint Valentine. Consequently, he was killed by the Roman Emperor on this day of Lupercalia (Feast of love/ sex) on 14 th Feb.

Gradually, when the Romans embraced Christianity, they continued to celebrate the Feast of Love or sex i.e. Lupercalia, but they changed it's name to ‘Saint Valentines Day’ and followed it with some minor changes.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, say NO to this jaahili (waywardness of days of ignorance), evil, Pagan, and Christian celebration of Saint Valentines Day.

We are Muslim and we do not bear witness to falsehood or evil, let alone the thought of being part of it.

In recent times this disease of celebration of immoral and licentious Valentine’s Day has become widespread amongst Muslims, especially among female students. It is a an evil Christian festival having roman pagan roots laced with evil and promiscuous activities where people dress completely in red, including clothes and shoes, and exchange red flowers and gifts with wanton desires and actions. So brothers and sisters say NO to being part of evil jaahiliyah celebration of this Saint Valentines Day in any form.

ALLAH SWT Says regarding believers:

"And those who do not bear witness to falsehood, and if they pass by some evil play or evil talk, they pass by it with dignity." [Surah Furqan; 025:072]

:: ALLAH Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala cautions us from following Satan and Disbelievers ::

“O you who believe! Follow not the footsteps of Shaitân (Satan). And whosoever follows the footsteps of Shaitân (Satan), then, verily, he commands Al-Fahshâ' [i.e. to commit indecency (illegal sexual intercourse)], and Al-Munkar [disbelief and polytheism (i.e. to do evil and wicked deeds; and to speak or to do what is forbidden in Islâm)]. And had it not been for the Grace of Allâh and His Mercy on you, not one of you would ever have been pure from sins. But Allâh purifies (guides to Islâm) whom He wills, and Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.” [Surah Noor; (024:021)]

“Verily, those who like that (the crime of) illegal sexual conduct should be propagated among those who believe, they will have a painful torment in this world and in the Hereafter. And Allâh knows and you know not.” [Surah Noor; (024:019)]

“…And whoever takes Shaitân (Satan) as a Walî (intimate friend, protector or helper) instead of Allâh, has surely suffered a manifest loss. He [Shaitân (Satan)] makes promises to them, and arouses in them false desires; and Shaitân's (Satân) promises are nothing but deceptions. The dwelling of such (people) is Hell, and they will find no way of escape from it.” [Surah Nisaa; 004: 119 to 121]

"And do not obey him whose heart We have made to be neglectful of Our remembrance, one who follows his own whims and desires and whose affairs have gone beyond bounds and whose deeds have been lost." [Surah al Kahf; 18:28]

"Allâh wishes to accept your repentance, but those who follow their lusts, wish that you (believers) should deviate tremendously away (from the Right Path)." [Quraan, Surah Nisaa, 004:027]

"Is he who is on a clear proof from his Lord, like those for whom their evil deeds that they do are beautified for them, while they follow their own lusts (evil desires)?" [Quraan, Surah Muhammad, 047:014]

"That is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord. Thus does Allâh set forth for mankind their parables." [Quraan, Surah Muhammad 047:003]

Likewise there are many verses to this effect.

:: ALLAH Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala forbids us and strictly warn us from following or imitating Disbelievers ::

“..And you should not follow the vain desires of such as treat Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) as falsehoods, and such as believe not in the Hereafter, and they hold others as equal (in worship) with their Lord.” [006:150]

“…And if you were to follow their desires after what you have received of Knowledge (i.e. the Qur'ân), then you would have against Allâh neither any Walî (protector or guardian) nor any helper.” [002: 120]

Likewise there are many verses to this effect.

Prophet (PBUH) said: “The one who imitates people other than us is not from us..” (Tirmidhi)

Prophet (PBUH) said: “Whoever imitates a people (i.e. kuffaars) is one of them."(Narrated by Abu Dawood, 1204; Ahmad, 2/05. Saheeh in Jamee’ al-Saheeh, 5206).

Imitation, which is strictly prohibited, is effected in one of the following two ways:

a) One does something with the intention of imitating the Kuffar, meaning one does so because one wants to be like a particular kaafir (non-believer) or non-believers.

b) Doing something that is unique and exclusive to the non-believers it being part of their faith (religion).

Conclusion: Celebrating Saint Valentines day involves two Haraam (strictly prohibited) things

1] Imitation of Disbelievers

2] Becoming part of Fahisha (illegal sexual conduct) custom and promoting it.
