honestly, in facebook and blogs, i'm sick of seeing entries about valentine's day, how much it's prohibited in our religion.... yadda yadda yadda. i totally agree with them in this thing, but... it's too much. i know why they do this, to spread the knowledge to those who don't know and continue to celebrate this, with hope that they would understand why they shouldn't celebrate valentine's day and thus, STOP. the MO is totally understandable.
the only thing i don't understand is the brats whose identification cards say they are muslims, that actually know that celebrating it is prohibited and why, but still continue to do so.
in a year, there're MANY occasions where you can actually celebrate your love. there are anniversaries, birthdays and other important day that are MUCH MORE meaningful to people involved, rather than this generalized, highly commercialized valentine's day.
why would you wanna make something wrong just to follow a culture that your own religion says NO to? do you not have enough faith in your own religion?
