Good Morning Pakistan – 13th February 2013 (Fatima Affandi & Makeup Expert Nabila)

    Seriously Nida! What a disappointment to see that our Muslims are
    promoting and celebrating Valentines! I think viewers should also
    understand what Valentines means in Islam and hence for that reason I am
    posting this ruling:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Valentine’s Day is a jaahili Roman festival, which continued to be celebrated until
    after the Romans became Christian. This festival became connected with the
    saint known as Valentine who was sentenced to death on 14 February 270 CE.
    The kuffaar still celebrate this festival, during which immorality and evil
    are practised widely.

    Secondly: It is not permissible for a Muslim to celebrate any of the
    festivals of the kuffaar, because festivals come under the heading of
    shar’i issues which are to be
    based on the sound texts. Shaykh
    al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Festivals are
    part of sharee’ah, clear way and rituals of which Allaah says
    (interpretation of the meaning):

    “To each among you, We have prescribed a law and a clear way” [al-Maa’idah 5:48]

    “For every nation We have ordained religious ceremonies which they must follow”
    [al-Hajj 22:67]

    Partially joining in, at the very least, is disobedience and sin. This was indicated
    by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) when he
    said: “Every people has its festival and this is our festival.” This is
    worse than joining them in wearing the zinaar (a garment that was worn only
    by ahl al-dhimmah) and other characteristics of theirs, for those
    characteristics are man-made and are not part of their religion, rather the
    purpose behind them is simply to distinguish between a Muslim and a kaafir.
    As for the festival and its rituals, this is part of the religion which is
    cursed along with its followers, so joining in with it is joining in with
    something that is a cause of incurring the wrath and punishment of Allaah.
    End quote from Iqtida’ al-Siraat al-Mustaqeem (1/207).

    He also said (may Allaah have mercy on him): It is not permissible for the Muslims to
    imitate them in anything that is uniquely a part of their festivals, whether
    it be food, clothing, bathing, lighting fires, refraining from a regular
    habit, doing acts of worship or anything else. It is not permissible to give
    a feast or to give gifts, or to sell anything that will help them to do that
    for that purpose, or to allow children and others to play games that are
    part of the festivals, or to wear one’s adornments.

    To conclude: the Mulsims should not do any of their rituals at the time of their
    festivals; rather the day of their festival should be like any other day for
    the Muslims. The Muslims should not do anything specific in imitation of
    them. End quote from Majmoo al-Fataawa (25/329).


    And Allaah knows best.
