    FATWA on valentines Day

    Someone Send me this Fatwa which he got from . Do u guys agree with it. I just wanted to start a debate !!!!!
    whats ur opnion?

    ================================================== ===============

    Question: Some people celebrate Yawm al-Hubb
    (Valentine's Day) on February 14 [the second month of
    the Christian Gregorian calendar] every year by
    exchanging red roses as gifts. They also dress up in
    red clothing, and congratulate one another (on this
    occasion). Some sweet shops produce special sweets -
    red in colour - and draw hearts upon them. Some shops
    advertise their goods which are specially related to
    this day. What is the Islaamic view [concerning the
    1. Celebrating this day?
    2. Buying from these shops on this day?
    3. Selling - by shop-owners who are not celebrating -
    the things which are used as gifts, to those who are

    (And) may Allaah reward you with all good!

    Response: The clear evidence from the Qur.aan and
    Sunnah - and this is agreed upon by consensus (Ijmaa')
    of the early generations of the Muslim Ummah -
    indicates that there are only two 'Eeds in Islaam
    (days of celebration): 'Eed al-Fitr (after the fast of
    Ramadhaan) and 'Eed al-Adhaa (after the standing at
    'Arafah for pilgrimage).

    Every other 'Eed - whether it is coto a person, group,
    incident or any other occasion - is an innovated 'Eed.
    It is not permissible for the Muslim people to
    participate in it, approve of it, make any show of
    happiness on its occasion, or assist in it in any way
    - since this will be transgressing the bounds of

    {...and whoever transgresses the bounds of Allaah, he
    has wronged his own self}, [Soorah at-Talaaq, Aayah 1]

    If we add to this fabricated 'Eed the fact that it is
    one of the 'Eeds of the disbelievers, it is sin upon
    sin. This is because it is Tashabbuh (imitation) of
    the disbelievers, and a type of Muwaalaat (loyalty) to
    them. And Allaah has prohibited the believers from
    imitation of them and having love or loyalty for them
    in His Mighty Book (Qur.aan). It is also confirmed
    from the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) that
    he said: Whoever imitates a people is one of them.

    'Eed al-Hubb (the celebration of Valentine's Day)
    comes under the category of what has been mentioned
    here, since it is one of the pagan Christian holidays.
    Hence it is not permissible for any Muslim, who
    believes in Allaah and the Last Day, to participate in
    it, approve of it, or congratulate (anyone on that
    occasion). On the contrary, it is obligatory to
    abandon it and stay far away from it - in response to
    Allaah and His Messenger, and to distance oneself from
    the anger of Allaah and His punishment.

    Additionally, it is forbidden for a Muslim to assist
    or help in this 'Eed, or any other of the
    forbidden/illegal celebrations in any way whatsoever -
    whether by food or drink, selling or buying,
    production, gift-giving, correspondence,
    announcements, etc. All of these things are considered
    as co-operating in sin and transgression and
    disobedience of Allaah and His Messenger. Allaah, the
    Glorious and Most High, says:

    {... and co-operate with one another in righteousness
    and piety, and do not co-operate in sin and
    transgression. And fear Allaah! Verily Allaah is
    severe in punishment}, [Soorah al-Maa.idah, Aayah 2]

    Likewise, it is obligatory for every Muslim to adhere
    strictly to the Qur.aan and Sunnah in every situation
    - especially in times of temptations and corruption.
    It is incumbent that he/she understand, be aware and
    be cautioned from falling into the deviations of those
    whom Allaah is angry with (Jews) and those who are
    astray (Christians) and the immoral people who have no
    fear of punishment - nor hope of reward - from Allaah,
    and who give no attention at all to Islaam.

    It is necessary for the Muslim to flee to Allaah, the
    Most High, seeking His Hidaayah (Guidance) and Thabaat
    (Firmness) upon the Path. Verily, there is no Guide
    except Allaah, and no One Who can Grant Firmness
    except Him.

    And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send
    prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu
    `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

    Jiyo Aur Jeene Do!!!

    Hmm.. what is Valentine's day to most people nowadays? A day to remember and do something extra special for the ones they love.

    Oh yes I agree we should definitely outlaw it.

    ..time to eat all your words, swallow your your eyes..


      Its absolutely no use discussing about whats Islamic and whats not. Whenever, you are fronted with some debatable matter, just issue a fatwa from your sub-conscience to your not-so-sub-conscience, proclaiming to yourself that this thing must be haram. Thats a very safe way of not digressing from the Islamic path.
      Note:Sorry, if this digresses from the purpose of your post. This is just a general comment, not specifically for Valentine's day. Someone might want to delete it so very badly.

      So what you wanted to See good has made you blind
      And what you wanted to Be yours has made it Mine
      So don't you lock up Something that you
      Wanted to see fly
      Hands are for shaking No not tying
      I sure don't Mind a change But I fell on black Days
      How would I know That this could be My fate
      I'm cold seed, I'm your sweetest leaf
      I'll ease your mind, I'll set you free
