Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Valentines day

Heart shaped chocolate boxes

I want to celebrate Valentines day.... Not because it belongs to Christians and Jews but because I want to share my love and affection to my loved ones such as family members..... I don't celebrate Valentines day.... I just had specified 14 February for this purpose...... And as everyone knows Islam does not prohibit to show your love and affection to your family..... Is there any problem on doing extra on this day although I show them my love throughout the year but have specified this day for extra surprises!

    Valentine's Day was originally a Christian festival, celebrating a Christian saint. As Muslims, we shouldn't be celebrating such things - not least because the veneration of saints in some branches of Christianity could be considered shirk.

    If you want to do something to show your love for your family, do so as an act of charity and submission to Allah, at a time that is relevant to the action in question. We should not hesitate to show kindness and respect to all of our brothers and sisters in Islam. We don't need an over-commercialised festival to remind us of this.
