Valentine’s Day Today

Beliefs & Practices, In the Name of Love

Today young Muslims, both boys and girls participate in these celebrations. These celebrations are popularised at homes, colleges, universities, offices through TV, radio, dramas, musical shows, films  and dirty literature and so the lustful desires in these young Muslims are not only inflamed but they are also taught new modes of shamelessness. Also becoming common are restaurants promoting Valentine’s Day dinners, hotels offering balls, and stores advertising flowers, chocolates, and other gifts. It is a pity that the male-female relation is given a very shameless image in all this ‘love’ fever.

Hadith Number Two

Chapter 02 - Grave Warnings For Not Performing Hajj, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

Hazrat Abi Umama R.A. reports that Rasulullah Sal’am said: “Whoever fails to perform Hajj while not being prevented from it by a definite and valid necessity, or by oppression from an unjust ruler, or by sever illness, and then passes away, in such a state has the choice to die as a Jew, if he so wishes, or as Christian if he so wishes.’

The same type of Hadith is reported by Hazrat Umar R.A. in it is thrice mentioned: “he has the choice to die as a Jew if he so wishes or as a Christian.” Another report from Hazrat Umar R.A. does not do so, then you can swear (by Allah) that he has died as a Christian or as a Jew.” (Kanz)
