The Muslim's attitude towards this holiday should be clear:
1- He should not celebrate it, or join others in their celebrations of it, or attend their celebrations because it is forbidden to celebrate the festivals of non-Muslims.
Ath-Thahabi said: "If the Christians have a festival and the Jews have a festival,.. More
Indeed, the disbelievers, the founders of Western culture of ignorance, spare no effort in enforcing their way of life on Muslims aiming at controlling them, eradicating Islamic beliefs from their hearts and keeping them away from adopting the Islamic way of life; since Islam is the gravest peril that threatens their existence. Hence, they exert endless.. More
In a series of ferocious attacks launched by non-Muslims against the Islamic Ummah (nation) attempting to wipe out its attributes and eradicate its values, the Western media, along with its allies, propagates an evil festival under a noble name. It is “the festival of love” or “St. Valentine's Day”. Deceiving and confusing Muslims,.. More
Where is the love which they talk about and allocate a festival for, while their reality is completely different?
Western studies and statistics reveal the following:
• An American study conducted in 1407 A.H./1987 CE, states that 79 percent of men physically abuse their womenfolk, especially if they are married. (Al-Qabas Newspaper, 15/2/1988.)
Humans, by nature, enjoy both private and public festive occasions, such as holidays. With consideration to this disposition, the Islamic Sharee’ah (jurisprudence) has legislated two ‘Eeds – Al-Adh-ha (tenth of Thul-Hijjah) and Al-Fitr (after Ramadan) – that occur once a year each. Allah The Almighty has ordained marking these.. More
Allah blessed us with this great religion and guided us to the straight path; and it is more than sufficient for our requirements. Through this great religion, we receive contentment and guidance; from it we attain peace and security; and because of it love and harmony are spread. Allah will grant might and honor to people in proportion to how much.. More
Allah warned us from following the disbelievers or supporting them and commanded us to differ from them. He Almighty Says (what means): “O you who have believed! Take not those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement among the ones who were given the Scripture before you nor the disbelievers as allies. And fear Allah if you should.. More
Many people celebrate Valentine’s Day, which falls on the fourteenth of February every year; they do so by exchanging red rosesand gifts. They also dress up in red clothingand congratulate one another on this occasion. Certain bakeries and confectioners produce special sweets for the occasion which are red in color and have heartsupon.. More
As we have mentioned, this festival was annulled by Christian clerics in Italy, the headquarters of Catholics, because it aided in the spread of bad morals and corrupting influences on the youth. Therefore, Muslims should dismiss it. We do not want to deprive people of experiencing real love or expressing affectionate feelings and emotions,.. More
The word “love” has great meaning, significance and is subject to certain limits in the light of the pure Sharee‘ah (Islamic legislation).
It is strange, however, that nowadays love and emotion are exploited to the extent that they are associated with pagan myths and dissolute festivals which are not acceptable to people with sound.. More
No religion urges its followers to adopt mutual love, affection and intimacy like the religion of Islam. This should be the case at all times, not just on specific days. Islam encourages showing affection and love towards each other all the time. In a Hadeeth (narration), the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: "When a man loves.. More
Ibraaheem ibn Adham, may Allah have mercy upon him, was once asked, “O Abu Is-haaq, why are our supplications to Allah The Exalted not answered?” He answered, “Because your hearts have died due to ten things.” They inquired, “What are they?” Ibraaheem bin Adham, may Allah have mercy upon him, said:

Even during the worst periods and the lowest points in Muslim history, we were more attached to our Islamic ideals than we are in this age. The enemies of Islam may have conquered most of our lands by force, but they did not shake our belief in the Islamic Creed. Today, why do we willingly run to emulate their values and lifestyle, despising our own.. More
I am not forced to admit to you on this day that I have known love. However, this does not coerce me to allocate one day for the rest of my entire life to regret the killing of the patron saint of love (Valentine) and commemorate him. I am not obliged to show love to those who are massacring the concept of true love in my country, killing my dreams.. More
This question may be answered in several ways:
1- In Islam, the festivals are clearly defined and well established, and no additions or subtractions may be accepted. They are an essential part of our worship and there is no room for personal opinion. They have been prescribed for us by Allah and His Messenger sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam. Ibn Taymiyyah.. More
