Sharia status of Valentines Day

Sharia status of Valentine’s Day

 

As the times set the course of development, our moral and social values are being seriously threatened in the name of modernity and fashion. Our Eastern civilization is fading away, and day by day, new Western values and customs are infiltrating our Islamic culture in a very imperceptible way. If it is said in this context, it may not be wrong that social media and the internet, etc., have made the civilizations of the world aware of each other and have brought them very close to each other. This is why today’s western lifestyle and traditions are considered a sign of modernity and unfashionably. It is the result of this behavior that our young generation is taking pride in adopting the lifestyles, habits, and manners of western societies out of the realm of their religious values.

They also have Valentine’s Day as one of the customs and traditions, in which they celebrate Valentine’s Day with full enthusiasm, keeping all moral boundaries above the threshold.

 

Historical status of Valentine’s Day

There is no exact and final point in its historical status, though there are a few favorite things: it is celebrated as a festival of lovers. According to the Encyclopedia Book of Knowledge:

Valentine’s Day celebrated on February 14, is a special day for the beloved.

The history of Valentine’s Day is such that it began on the occasion of Roman St. Villen Tyne, which was banned for not changing religion, during which Valentine loved the jailer’s daughter during his imprisonment. Before the jailer’s daughter wrote a farewell invitation, which was listed, your Valentine’s incident took place on February 7, so this Day will be celebrated in memory.

 

Why it’s not permissible to celebrate Valentine’s Day

According to Sharia, there are a few traditions to celebrate this day, some of which are given below:

The beginning of sin

On this day, since the non-mahram is offered a flower card for love to express love to a man or a woman, which is intended to be within me that I want a relationship with you, and thus this card is a non-lawful way to the man and the woman. He draws closer to one another, and then there is all the lawful work, for example, neglect, soft voice conversation, expression of sexy ideas on the phone, and eventually, disobeying honor. That is, Valentine’s Day is the first step towards sin, and then stories of love and love arise, which in fact, brings us to the brink of destruction.

Elimination of Haya

The glory of a pure Muslim woman is that she is bent over the veil and is ashamed. She should be far from the unconscious conversation with the non-mahram and the Muslim young man, shame, and dignity. Happens. But Valentine’s Day is the name of blowing all things in the air where there is nothing called shame, but these things are considered cowardly. Believedly, expressing love on the card in open words and romance poems are the things that make the shame of shame while Islam has taught Haya. Prevented from keeping your eyes down and mixing free. There are some of the Hadiths about Haya: Sayyidina Wadah ibn Samat (رضي الله عنه) narrated that the Prophet () said:

اطمنوا لي سنا مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَضْمَنْ لَكُمُ الجنَّةَ اصْدُقُوا إِذَا حَدَّتُكُمْ، وَأَوْفُوا إِذَا وَعَدَكُمْ وأدوا إِذَا اوكُنتُمْ، وَاحْفَظُوا فُرُوجَكُمْ، وَغُضُّوا أَبْصَارَكُمْ، وَكُفُّوا أَيْدِيَكُمْ

Give me six things from your life. I guarantee you Paradise. When talking, tell the truth, promise, and fulfill it. Keep and keep your hands from wrongdoing. (Musnad Ahmad 227573)

 

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْيَمَانِ، أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ يَسَارٍ، أَخْبَرَنِي عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَبَّاسٍ ـ رضى الله عنهما ـ قَالَ أَرْدَفَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم الْفَضْلَ بْنَ عَبَّاسٍ يَوْمَ النَّحْرِ خَلْفَهُ عَلَى عَجُزِ رَاحِلَتِهِ، وَكَانَ الْفَضْلُ رَجُلاً وَضِيئًا، فَوَقَفَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم لِلنَّاسِ يُفْتِيهِمْ، وَأَقْبَلَتِ امْرَأَةٌ مِنْ خَثْعَمَ وَضِيئَةٌ تَسْتَفْتِي رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَطَفِقَ الْفَضْلُ يَنْظُرُ إِلَيْهَا، وَأَعْجَبَهُ حُسْنُهَا، فَالْتَفَتَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَنْظُرُ إِلَيْهَا، فَأَخْلَفَ بِيَدِهِ فَأَخَذَ بِذَقَنِ الْفَضْلِ، فَعَدَلَ وَجْهَهُ عَنِ النَّظَرِ إِلَيْهَا، فَقَالَتْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ فَرِيضَةَ اللَّهِ فِي الْحَجِّ عَلَى عِبَادِهِ أَدْرَكَتْ أَبِي شَيْخًا كَبِيرًا، لاَ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يَسْتَوِيَ عَلَى الرَّاحِلَةِ، فَهَلْ يَقْضِي عَنْهُ أَنْ أَحُجَّ عَنْهُ قَالَ ‏ “‏ نَعَمْ ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Abbas: Al-Fadl bin `Abbas rode behind the Prophet (ﷺ) as his companion rider on the back portion of his she camel on the Day of Nahr (slaughtering of sacrifice, 10th Dhul-Hijja) and Al-Fadl was a handsome man. The Prophet (ﷺ) stopped to give the people verdicts. In the meantime, a beautiful woman From the tribe of Khath’am came, asking the verdict of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ). Al-Fadl started looking at her as her beauty attracted him. The Prophet (ﷺ) looked behind while Al-Fadl was looking at her; so the Prophet (ﷺ) held out his hand backwards and caught the chin of Al-Fadl and turned his face (to the owner sides in order that he should not gaze at her. She said, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! The obligation of Performing Hajj enjoined by Allah on His worshipers, has become due (compulsory) on my father who is an old man and who cannot sit firmly on the riding animal. Will it be sufficient that I perform Hajj on his behalf?” He said, “Yes.” (Al-Bukhari)

 

حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الرَّقِّيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ يُونُسَ، عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ يَحْيَى، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏ “‏ إِنَّ لِكُلِّ دِينٍ خُلُقًا وَخُلُقُ الإِسْلاَمِ الْحَيَاءُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

It was narrated from Anas that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Every religion has its distinct characteristic, and the distinct characteristic of Islam is modesty.” (Sunan Ibn Majah)

 

وَعَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: ” إِيَّاكُمْ وَالدُّخُولَ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَرَأَيْتَ الْحَمْوَ؟ قَالَ: «الْحَمْوُ الْمَوْتُ»

‘Uqba b. ‘Amir reported God’s Messenger as saying,

“Avoid going in where women are.” A man said, “Messenger of God, tell me about the relatives of a woman’s husband,” to which he replied, “The relatives of a woman’s husband are death.”* *The word “death” is used to indicate a strong prohibition, the idea being that they are a cause of temptation to a man’s wife. (Mishkat al-Masabih)

All these hadiths and sayings have been ordered to bow down and protect the eyes in the Salaf, while Valentine’s Day is the day of grabbing the card with hands and looking at each other with eyes, and when the eyes are four, the paths of the illicit ceremony are the way. The front is opened automatically, and such people have become so vicious that the eyes are closed to their feet, and to whom they grow step by step is the shackle of disgrace.
According to the poet:

See a lot we have, of the turmoil of love
Start also humiliation, end also to disgrace

Promotion of indecency

Islam teaches its believers, while Valentine’s Day shows the way to the people of indecency, obscenity, and nudity.

SyedNa Abdullah bin Umar (رضي الله عنه). It is narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said:

Al -Hijaya al -Wa’iman Qur’an Jama’at is both a companion and faith; when one of them is taken up, the other is taken up. (Saheeh al-Targhib wa’l-Tarheeb: 2636)

This means that there is an intense connection between Haya and faith. Anyone will have faith and faith; if one thing is removed, the other will automatically disappear. Radling of love on the occasion of Valentine’s Day, holding the card, matching the optical matching all these actions close to adultery, as:

حَدَّثَنِي مَحْمُودُ بْنُ غَيْلاَنَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّزَّاقِ، أَخْبَرَنَا مَعْمَرٌ، عَنِ ابْنِ طَاوُسٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ مَا رَأَيْتُ شَيْئًا أَشْبَهَ بِاللَّمَمِ مِمَّا قَالَ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَتَبَ عَلَى ابْنِ آدَمَ حَظَّهُ مِنَ الزِّنَا، أَدْرَكَ ذَلِكَ لاَ مَحَالَةَ، فَزِنَا الْعَيْنِ النَّظَرُ، وَزِنَا اللِّسَانِ الْمَنْطِقُ، وَالنَّفْسُ تَمَنَّى وَتَشْتَهِي، وَالْفَرْجُ يُصَدِّقُ ذَلِكَ، وَيُكَذِّبُهُ ‏”‏‏.‏ وَقَالَ شَبَابَةُ حَدَّثَنَا وَرْقَاءُ، عَنِ ابْنِ طَاوُسٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏.‏

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

I did not see anything so resembling minor sins as what Abu Huraira said from the Prophet, who said, “Allah has written for the son of Adam his inevitable share of adultery whether he is aware of it or not: The adultery of the eye is the looking (at something which is sinful to look at), and the adultery of the tongue is to utter (what it is unlawful to utter), and the innerself wishes and longs for (adultery) and the private parts turn that into reality or refrain from submitting to the temptation.” (Al-Bukhari)

There is a written on those whose sons and daughters raise the pangs of love, meet together, are lonely, travel with each other, and they call it freedom as parents and brothers become dumb devils. – Remember that this is not freedom, but indifference.

حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَوَانَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْمَلِكِ، عَنْ وَرَّادٍ، كَاتِبِ الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ، قَالَ قَالَ سَعْدُ بْنُ عُبَادَةَ لَوْ رَأَيْتُ رَجُلاً مَعَ امْرَأَتِي لَضَرَبْتُهُ بِالسَّيْفِ غَيْرَ مُصْفَحٍ‏.‏ فَبَلَغَ ذَلِكَ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ ‏ “‏ أَتَعْجَبُونَ مِنْ غَيْرَةِ سَعْدٍ، لأَنَا أَغْيَرُ مِنْهُ، وَاللَّهُ أَغْيَرُ مِنِّي ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Al-Mughira:

Sa`d bin Ubada said, “If I found a man with my wife, I would kill him with the sharp side of my sword.” When the Prophet (ﷺ) heard that he said, “Do you wonder at Sa`d’s sense of ghira (self-respect)? Verily, I have more sense of ghira than Sa`d, and Allah has more sense of ghira than I.” (Al-Bukhari)

Gathering of Men & Women

Valentine’s Day paved the way for free mixing; it has a timely expression of free expression, which seriously results. One step through Valentine’s Day, women who are on the ladder of love often lose rape; they realize that they later go. Religion Islam does not allow the mixing of Islam at all.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said about solitude:

وَعَنْ عُمَرَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «لَا يَخْلُوَنَّ رَجُلٌ بِامْرَأَةٍ إِلَّا كَانَ ثالثهما الشَّيْطَان» . رَوَاهُ التِّرْمِذِيّ

‘Umar reported the Prophet as saying,

“Whenever a man is alone with a woman the devil makes a third.”
Tirmidhi transmitted it. (Mishkat al-Masabih)

 

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ يُونُسَ، حَدَّثَنَا زُهَيْرٌ، حَدَّثَنَا مَنْصُورٌ، عَنْ رِبْعِيِّ بْنِ حِرَاشٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مَسْعُودٍ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ إِنَّ مِمَّا أَدْرَكَ النَّاسُ مِنْ كَلاَمِ النُّبُوَّةِ الأُولَى إِذَا لَمْ تَسْتَحِي فَاصْنَعْ مَا شِئْتَ ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Abu Mas`ud:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘One of the sayings of the early Prophets which the people have got is: If you don’t feel ashamed (from Haya’: pious shyness from committing religeous indiscretions) do whatever you like.” (Al-Bukhari)

 

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مَسْلَمَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ، – يَعْنِي ابْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِي الْيَمَانِ، عَنْ شَدَّادِ بْنِ أَبِي عَمْرِو بْنِ حِمَاسٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ حَمْزَةَ بْنِ أَبِي أُسَيْدٍ الأَنْصَارِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ وَهُوَ خَارِجٌ مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ فَاخْتَلَطَ الرِّجَالُ مَعَ النِّسَاءِ فِي الطَّرِيقِ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لِلنِّسَاءِ ‏ “‏ اسْتَأْخِرْنَ فَإِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَكُنَّ أَنْ تَحْقُقْنَ الطَّرِيقَ عَلَيْكُنَّ بِحَافَاتِ الطَّرِيقِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ فَكَانَتِ الْمَرْأَةُ تَلْتَصِقُ بِالْجِدَارِ حَتَّى إِنَّ ثَوْبَهَا لَيَتَعَلَّقُ بِالْجِدَارِ مِنْ لُصُوقِهَا بِهِ ‏.‏

Narrated AbuUsayd al-Ansari:

AbuUsayd heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say when he was coming out of the mosque, and men and women were mingled in the road: Draw back, for you must not walk in the middle of the road; keep to the sides of the road. Then women were keeping so close to the wall that their garments were rubbing against it. (Sunan Abi Dawud)

 

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مَسْلَمَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ، – يَعْنِي ابْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِي الْيَمَانِ، عَنْ شَدَّادِ بْنِ أَبِي عَمْرِو بْنِ حِمَاسٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ حَمْزَةَ بْنِ أَبِي أُسَيْدٍ الأَنْصَارِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ وَهُوَ خَارِجٌ مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ فَاخْتَلَطَ الرِّجَالُ مَعَ النِّسَاءِ فِي الطَّرِيقِ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لِلنِّسَاءِ ‏ “‏ اسْتَأْخِرْنَ فَإِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَكُنَّ أَنْ تَحْقُقْنَ الطَّرِيقَ عَلَيْكُنَّ بِحَافَاتِ الطَّرِيقِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ فَكَانَتِ الْمَرْأَةُ تَلْتَصِقُ بِالْجِدَارِ حَتَّى إِنَّ ثَوْبَهَا لَيَتَعَلَّقُ بِالْجِدَارِ مِنْ لُصُوقِهَا بِهِ ‏.‏

Narrated AbuUsayd al-Ansari:

AbuUsayd heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say when he was coming out of the mosque, and men and women were mingled in the road: Draw back, for you must not walk in the middle of the road; keep to the sides of the road. Then women were keeping so close to the wall that their garments were rubbing against it. (Sunan Abi Dawud)

Just think! If the religion of Islam does not allow men and women to come together when they go to the house of Allah, how will it allow Valentine’s Day and Innovation to gather in the gathering?

Resemblance to Christians

The fourth reason for Valentine’s Day being invalidated is that it resembles infidels with Romans and Christians. It is forbidden to disbelieve, whether idolatrous or idolatrous, in general, whether in a similar belief, or their habits and customs, or in the festival.

Allah says in the Qur’an:

وَلَا تَكُونُوا۟ كَٱلَّذِينَ تَفَرَّقُوا۟ وَٱخْتَلَفُوا۟ مِنۢ بَعْدِ مَا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلْبَيِّنَـٰتُ ۚ وَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌۭ

Do not be like those who became divided and fell into disputes after the clear signs had come to them. Those are the ones for whom there is a grave punishment. (3:105)

And not to be like those who have divided and disagreed even after they have come to light. They have a great punishment for the people. The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عُمَرَ الصَّنْعَانِيُّ ـ مِنَ الْيَمَنِ ـ عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَسْلَمَ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏”‏ لَتَتْبَعُنَّ سَنَنَ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ شِبْرًا شِبْرًا وَذِرَاعًا بِذِرَاعٍ، حَتَّى لَوْ دَخَلُوا جُحْرَ ضَبٍّ تَبِعْتُمُوهُمْ ‏”‏‏.‏ قُلْنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ الْيَهُودُ وَالنَّصَارَى قَالَ ‏”‏ فَمَنْ ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “You will follow the ways of those nations who were before you, span by span and cubit by cubit (i.e., inch by inch) so much so that even if they entered a hole of a mastigure, you would follow them.” We said, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! (Do you mean) the Jews and the Christians?” He said, “Whom else?”  (Al-Bukhari)

 

حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو النَّضْرِ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ ثَابِتٍ، حَدَّثَنَا حَسَّانُ بْنُ عَطِيَّةَ، عَنْ أَبِي مُنِيبٍ الْجُرَشِيِّ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ مَنْ تَشَبَّهَ بِقَوْمٍ فَهُوَ مِنْهُمْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: He who copies any people is one of them. (Sunan Abi Dawud)

Shaykh -ul -Islam Ibn Taymiyyah writes: The minimum condition of this hadeeth requires the reflection of them to resemble them, even though the disbelievers of the hadeeth of the hadeeth require the disbelief (1)

Further, Imam Ibn Taymiyyah Allah has quoted: On the prohibition of the disbelievers’ feasts and festivals, from the time of all the Companions to the scholars of today, there is a consensus. (Al-Aqtada: 53/1)

Imam Ibn Qayyim has also quoted the consensus of the scholars. (Ahkam Ahl al-Dama’ Ibn al-Qayyim: 22/723/2)

Wasteful expenditure

On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, flowers are often purchased across the country. ‘I Love You’ red balloons buy people and crowds of people in cinemas and then alcohol and kebab concerts, where it is a waste of time. The wealth is also a waste, and the religion of Islam (8000) Valentine has been a mountain (KB/S). Flowers are frequently purchased across the country on the occasion of wasteful Valentine’s Day. They buy, as well as crowds of people in cinemas and then alcohol and kebab concerts, which is a waste of time; there is also a waste of our wealth and religion. Islam has declared such a wasteful man as the brother of the devil. Allah Ta’ala says:

وَءَاتِ ذَا ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ حَقَّهُۥ وَٱلْمِسْكِينَ وَٱبْنَ ٱلسَّبِيلِ وَلَا تُبَذِّرْ تَبْذِيرًا (٢٦) إِنَّ ٱلْمُبَذِّرِينَ كَانُوٓا۟ إِخْوَٰنَ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينِ ۖ وَكَانَ ٱلشَّيْطَـٰنُ لِرَبِّهِۦ كَفُورًۭا (٢٧)

Give the relative his right, and the needy and the wayfarer. And do not squander recklessly. (17:26) Surely, squanderers are brothers of satans, and the Satan is very ungrateful to his Lord. (17:27)

It is a non -Islam festival that is not allowed in the Shariah. It gives birth to love and you. It causes the heart to suffer from immoral things contrary to the Salaf righteous. Therefore, every Muslim must have a monkey on his religion and not follow every voice as a weak faith.

 

Fatwas about Valentine’s Day

Muhammad ibn Salih al-Othaimeen:

Sheikh Mohammed bin Saleh was asked about Valentine’s Day, and he said,

Celebrating Valentine’s Day is not permissible for two reasons;

Al-Shaykh Abdullah bin Abdurrahman ibn Jabreen: It is in honor of the disbeliever’s imitation and their adoration to their admirers and resembles them in their festivals and feasts, which is included in their religion, and the hadeeth is that :

Whoever resembles a nation is one of them. Because of this, there are many mischief and prohibitions, including blood, dance, music, mischief, misconduct, dishonesty, and dishonesty; many forbidden acts are also done, or even the mixing of men and women, or many forbidden acts. Then the word about the source of indecency and pornography and the work that is included in the beginning is also rooted in it; it does not justify it with a small relationship like humiliation and happiness and happiness that considers its protection. There is no correct, so the admonition of the self should be relieved of sin and its resources.

Based on this, when it is known that the buyer is buying these gifts of gifts and roses for these festivals and feasts and will give him gifts or he will honor him with that day, then it is permissible to sell these goods. No, so that the seller does not participate in this evil and forbidden act. Fatwa Committee:
It is forbidden for a Muslim to attend this festival or any other forbidden festival. Source, all of this falls into the category of forbidden and disobedience to Allah because Allaah says:

وَتَعَاوَنُوا۟ عَلَى ٱلْبِرِّ وَٱلتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا۟ عَلَى ٱلْإِثْمِ وَٱلْعُدْوَٰنِ ۚ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ۖ

Help each other in righteousness and piety, and do not help each other in sin and aggression. Fear Allah. (5:2)

 

Valentine’s Day and our responsibilities

Our country Pakistan is also celebrated with great enthusiasm. Children and the elders celebrate it in full swing. As Muslims, we have some responsibilities that it is our duty to fulfill. Offer a few:

Invite subordinates

On this occasion, our brothers, friends, Iqbal, and the common public are busy celebrating Valentine’s Day. On this occasion, our primary responsibility is to prohibit such people from this festival, and this caretaker increases our responsibilities.

Aware of its negative aspects through the speech:

It is a disease spreading like a termite, and we have to play our role at all levels to protect our young men from this disease. The disease does not strangle the writer with his pen, his teacher’s teaching, and the use of social media or consumer media. Explain the myths that take place today and inform them of the harmful effects of the spread of society. Do not know that we do not know and take this disease to our children.

Boycott such meetings:

As Muslims, it is our responsibility not to attend this non -Muslim festival and not attend the assembly of these people, because their participation in the event is invalid.

Hafiz Dhabi (رحمة الله عليه) said:

“If there is a special festival of Christians and Jews, then no Muslim can attend their festival, just as a Muslim does not agree with them in their religion and Qibla.” (Shaba al-Khamis Bahl al-Khamis Bahr al-Majla al-Hakamah: 193/3)

They should not be helped

Whoever celebrates the festival, Muslims should not be supported, but it is obligatory to stop it because it is a denial and evil to celebrate the festival of infidels for Muslims which are obligatory to stop. Shaykh -ul -Islam Ibn Taymiyah (رحمة الله عليه) said:

And just as we do not resemble the disbelievers in their festivals, then Muslims will not be helped in this regard, but they will be prevented. (Al-Aqsa: 519 530/3)

Therefore, it is not permissible for Muslim businessmen to trade gifts of love, whether a precise dress or red rose flowers, etc. Similarly, suppose a person is given a gift on love day. In that case, it is not permissible to accept this gift because in accepting it, the festival is acknowledged and acknowledged correctly and helps in falsehood. So Allah Ta’ala says;

Therefore, it is not permissible for Muslim traders to trade gifts on the day of love, whether it is a certain type of clothing or red rose flowers, based on the decision of Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him). Similarly, if a gift is given to a person on the day of love, then it is not permissible to accept that gift, because accepting it is to acknowledge the festival and accept it as right and help in falsehood. Thus, Allah Ta’ala says:

وَتَعَاوَنُوا۟ عَلَى ٱلْبِرِّ وَٱلتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا۟ عَلَى ٱلْإِثْمِ وَٱلْعُدْوَٰنِ ۚ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ۖ

Help each other in righteousness and piety, and do not help each other in sin and aggression. Fear Allah. (5:2)

(Tashbah al-Khamis Bahl al-Khamis by Majla al-Hakamah: 193/3)

They should not be congratulated

The day of love should not be exchanged because it is neither a festival of Muslims nor Eid. Are:

It is unanimously forbidden to congratulate the particular slogans of the unbelievers who are unique to them. For example: congratulating them on their festivals or fasting, saying they should Eid Mubarak, or you have this festival. Therefore, if the one who says it is to avoid disbelief, it is one of the forbidden goods, and it is like that the person who prostrates the cross should be congratulated, but it is a drunk and innocent person to Allaah. Killing and committing adultery is more great and angry with Allah, and many people have no value for religion. They commit it and do not even know how great they have done. What is a crime? Therefore, whoever congratulated anyone on disobedience and disobedience or disbelief and innovation, presented himself to Allah’s anger and anger.
