Shaykh Salih al-Suhaymī 7 objections to Valentine Day

1: the Origin is purely idolatory. it was originally called Cupid’s (Roman god of love) Day; so recognizing it is recognition of idolatry.

2: It is blind following of d Jews & xtians. he Allah’s Messenger informed us of this, ‘you will follow d ways of those who came before you’ it was said, ‘d Jews & xtians?’ He said, ‘And what other nation [could I mean] besides those 2?‘ also d Persians & d Romans.’[3]

3: It is imitation of d disbelievers in general. Allāh’s Messenger of (SAW) said ‘Whoever imitates a people, he is from them.’

4: It is an innovation newly introduced by d people, Allāh’s Messenger of (SAW) said “and whoever innovates in this affairs of ours that which is not from it, it is rejected”.

5: It is an abomination, and so also everything that takes place in its observance e.g the sending of heart-shaped Valentine’s and what is similar to this of nonsense.

6: Even d true xtians do not celebrate this Valentine day., even the Vatican Christian Church, is stern in their prohibition of valentine day.

7: It is based upon a great myth—concerning what is called love and what it leads to from corruption. So love, in their view, is merely fornication & what leads to it.
Finally, we are warned not to imitate disbelievers.

…May Allah give us a better understanding & guide us to accept the truth
