As-salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Received this earlier today so I decided to share it. It goes thus:
Valentine’s Day is a jaahili Roman festival, which continued to be celebrated until after the Romans became Christian. This festival became connected with the saint known as Valentine who was sentenced to death on 14 February 270 CE. The kuffaar still celebrate this festival, during which immorality and evil are practiced widely.
It is not permissible for a Muslim to be part of anything that the kuffaar do even if they have proof for it. Allah has warned us in Quran 3:100 that if we follow non Muslims in general, they will deviate us into kufur. Today we are witnessing some Muslim brothers and sisters even dating non Muslims to the extent of deviating from Islam into kufur Astaqfirullah.
How can we sell our eeman because of so called LOVE? Let me make it clear to our ignorant brothers and sisters that such relationship will never last and you may end up dying into kufur for everlasting punishment from Allah so please quit today because you may die tomorrow. Going to beaches and entertainment centres to the extend of missing your Salaat and intermixing with opposite sex is purely an act of ignorance and senseless excuse me to say. Islam taught us to love our partners each day not yearly show off.
A sister recently cried to me that she abandoned her parents, deen and family because of loving and marrying a christian and leaving Islam few years ago and now that she need the man more after having 3 kids with him, the man has divorced her and has taking the kids from her to his new wife subhaanAllah.
She claim her parents has cursed her when she ignored their disapproval so she can’t go back home. Do you want to go through similar punishment from Allah?
Allah love those who repent so lets repent and avoid following our heart desires due to satanic influences. Tell your non Muslim friends that Valentine has no place in Islam as such you are out of it.
No need to wish them, receive call from them, respond to any of their text messages. We should not do any of their rituals on that day and should behave like any other day. If you disagree, keep your decision to yourself please. This is the standard for almost all known scholars which you can read online if you bother to research and read.
May Allah protect us from ignorance and satanic influences. Aameen.
