let me first talk about who is this valentine? valentine is a priest in rome who live in the time of emperor claudius. First of all i said is a priest of christian not that of islam, why should any muslim celebrate him.

secondly if we talk about what Allah says in the noble Qur'an Surah al Mujadala verse 1&2

1. O ye who believe! Take not my enemies and yours as friends (or protectors),- offering them (your) love, even though they have rejected the Truth that has come to you, and have (on the contrary) driven out the Prophet and yourselves (from your homes), (simply) because ye believe in Allah your Lord! If ye have come out to strive in My Way and to seek My Good Pleasure, (take them not as friends), holding secret converse of love (and friendship) with them: for I know full well all that ye conceal and all that ye reveal. And any of you that does this has strayed from the Straight Path.

2. If they were to get the better of you, they would behave to you as enemies, and stretch forth their hands and their tongues against you for evil: and they desire that ye should reject the Truth.

and this is happening in this time.

If christian celebrates him, they celebrate their priest. what about muslims.
