NOT HATING BUT WHY 1 PATICULAR DAY...

Reader comment on item: Hating Valentine's Day

Submitted by merziyah (Pakistan), Feb 19, 2007 at 10:59

hey friends, AOA,

i just want to say that people having the concept in mind that muslims are against valentines day ..is right but the way they portray the view is wrong. the basic story behind it is. muslims are not againt love and care or greeting cards or flowers etc..the point is Y there is a particular day made for love..why cant we spread our love to others every day ...as islam says.with same spirit we did on 14th feb....

Islam is the most easiest way of learning excellent ways of life, it never forces you to do anything..the Holy Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H) was the person who's life is lesson for us to live like...its not only for muslims but can be applied to any person if he/she wants to...never forced.

SO my friends i just want to say that muslims who compare everything in sex panorama are also wrong. they must go through right lessons, includes liberal thoughts. some of the muslims are portraying Islam in very wrong way. they force everything in the sake of islam. i said no no, my friends, Islam is not that difficult religion. it is the most easy way to accept it .there are some people wanted to force it instead of applying it with true stories..they just want to portray Islam in the way they want to...

SO here i clear my point that please dont make only 1 paticular day of expressing your feelings and thoughts. please spread your love with each other every day..its not really necessary to celeb. valentines day which is not our occassion...it is celebrated by people who have light hearted approach...so be clear that there is no such restrictions in Islam for it as there was no 14th feb. celebrated in those days of HAZRAT MUHAMMAD MUSTAFA.(SAWW)..then how it could be in quran...but He taught us to love each other anyways in any circumstances...not only 1 day...so called valentines day.

thats all my friends ...if i've said anything wrong or some 1 got hurt, i'm sorry..but its fact. muslims have no need to celebrate it on particular day they should know that they must give love to others every day, whether its family or friends,any other etc. My article is just an answer of this saying....

"Don't send greeting cards on any festivals, don't send birthday wishes, don't ask your singers to sing love songs, eliminate all love stories from the history, those are considered to be values of rich culture. I don't understand, saying to any body "happy valentine day" has anything to do with sex. Why my Muslim friends see everything in sex panorama."
