Think about it

A very Famous Proverb is  " One who Tries to emulate others blindly stands to lose “. Nobody knows when this proverb was made and what is in the mind of maker of this proverb when he made it. But it is perfectly fit on today’s Muslims .Because the Muslims are forgetting to ISLAM and trying to adopt the traditions of Christians and Jews. My point of discussion isValentine’s Day. Christians celebrate Valentine’s Day as a religious festival on 14 February. Along with the Westerns this day is also being celebrated in some Muslim countries Pakistan is also included in these countries. The youth of Pakistan is very advanced because Pakistan’s youth think his duty to do copy of others, although this copy proves very expensive for them

The history of Valentine's Day and its patron saint is shrouded in mystery. Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One was a priest and physician who died in Rome during the persecution of Christians by Claudius II Grothicus. The second was the bishop at Terni, Italy who was also martyred in Rome. There is no more information about third person. He was martyred in Africa with a number of companions, but nothing more is known about him. All of these have been buried at different places along the Flaminian Way. Valentine’s Day first time celebrated in England on 1840 A.D and in America On 1847 A.D onward.

Now please give me answer of some questions. Why we are forgetting our religion and why we are adopting others religions? Christians celebrate it as a religious festival but why do we celebrate it? Have we celebrated our religious festivals like these festivals with full zeal and zest? Does Islam gives us permission to act upon the teaching and rules of Christians?
Let’s look in the Holy Quran, Allah says in Surah Aal-e-Imran verse 85
“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” This is saying of Holly Quran Will we celebrate it after this? A very beautiful saying from someone “we fight for Islam and Die for Islam but we does not follow the teaching of Islam

There are also many social disadvantages of this along with religious disadvantages. Firstly you waste your wealth and Secondly your precious time in its celebration. If you will give the money which you waste in shopping for Valentine’s Day to any your poor Muslim brother , he will pray for you and will give bundle of thanks and you also feel spiritual comfortable.
That time which you waste in valentine’s activities, If you use this time to think about the improvement of your country and Islam you will get much better advantages.

At the end it is my request to all the Muslims that for God sake please avoid celebrating this and try to avoid your friends and relatives. And I also request to the government of Islamic Countries to ban this day. May Allah Almighty give you sensibility to boycott this day .Aameen
