Valentine's Day or Gateway to hell?
February 13,2018 - Published 6 years ago
The immodest and obscene actions generally performed on the Valentine’s Day tarnish the true Islamic values and teachings. Those celebrating this day cross the limits of modesty and decency; and indulge in committing such actions that bring about the wrath of Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ in this world and the hereafter. They openly disobey the commands of Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ and his Beloved Rasool Muhammad صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ through obscene and shameless actions, that too just to attain few moments of satisfaction of your nafs, just to satisfy your carnal desires! Remember! The pleasure will end, but sin will remain in your book of deed. Don't let these shameless and obscene practices of this day ruin your life in both worlds. Follow the commands of Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ and His Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ, and lead a prosperous life in this world and the hereafter. We have been commanded to protect our gazes and keep them lowered, protect our private parts and stay miles away from obscenity and shamelessness. These rulings are generally seen to be ignored on this day, and unfortunately our Muslim youth is also seen following this obscene, shameless and immodest trend of celebrating Valentine's day through unlawful means and not only destroy their afterlife, but also pollute the society through the curse of their evil and obscene practices on the name of celebrating this shameless day.
Just contemplate for a second that just to satisfy your carnal desires for few moments, how severely you displease Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ and His Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ! You risk facing the wrath of Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ for the sake of your carnal desires! Sharia strictly prohibits us from unlawful gazing! It strongly prohibits us from having relationships with stranger women! It strongly condemns ones shoulder coming in contact with a stranger woman, let alone holding her hands! In a Hadith, for persuasion, it has even been said to the extent that a metal nail piercing through one's head is better for him than coming in contact with a stranger woman! Sharia strictly forbids consumption of alcohol! Sharia stops us severely from adopting seclusion with a stranger woman!
Which of the aforementioned sins are not committed on this day? People oppose the Islamic teachings and rulings openly and daringly. Have some pity on your frail bodies. Do not risk your afterlife for the sake of few moments of satisfying your carnal desires. Abandon celebrating this obscene and shameless day, and make a firm intention of refraining from all the sins that are committed on this day throughout the year. By abandoning this day and evil practices, we will draw ourselves closer to Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, and lead an affluent and prosperous life in this world and the hereafter through adopting abstinence, righteousness and piety in our lives.
May Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ protect us from the curse and filth of all the evil practices practiced on this obscene and immodest day and make us tread on the path that would please Him and His Beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ.
اٰمِیْن بِجَاہِ النَّبِیِّ الْاَمِیْن صَلَّی اللہ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلہٖ وَسَلَّم
