Storm Track Disinformation: Muslim Cleric Nixes Valentine’s Day

Could Islam get any more constipated? Not that fundamental Christians who believe the celebration of Halloween is an act of devil worship are any better. Still it’s entertaining to see such narrow mindedness revealed for what it is.

The current issue of Islam Q & A has issued a 7,535 word treatise on the evils and dangers of St. Valentine’s Day. Hat tip to Sweetness & Light.

Here are some excerpts from the treatise.

Allaah has forbidden imitation of the kuffaar…..Allaah tells us in the Qur’aan that imitating and obeying the kuffaar may constitute riddah (apostasy). Allaah also forbids following them, obeying them, or following their whims and desires and bad characteristics.

The purpose of Valentine’s Day in these times is to spread love between all people, believers and disbelievers alike. Undoubtedly it is haraam to love the kaafirsIt is a mistake to confuse what they call the day with what the real intentions are behind it. The love referred to on this day is romantic love, taking mistresses and lovers, boyfriends and girlfriends. It is known to be a day of promiscuity and sex for them, with no restraints or restrictions

It takes a twisted mind to see innocence as evil.

They are not talking of pure love between a man and his wife or a woman and her husband, or at least they do not distinguish between the legitimate love in the relationship between husband and wife, and the forbidden love of mistresses and lovers. This festival for them is a means for everyone to express love…

Wow!! I didn’t know I was such a pervert sending a Valentine’s card.

Love in Islam is more general and more comprehensive; it is not restricted only to one kind of love, that between a man and a woman. There are many more kinds of love. There is the love of Allaah, love of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them), love for good and righteous people, love and support for the religion, love of martyrdom for the sake of Allaah.

Umm…don’t forget the love between an adult male and his child bride. Then the cleric quotes these stats as proof of the dangers of non-Muslim love.

Now let us look at the state of affairs in western societies where Valentine’s Day is celebrated, and ask, what is the state of marriage relationships in those societies, and do these celebrations have any positive effect on interactions between husbands and wives?

Their own studies and statistics show the following:

1 - In an American study done in 1407 AH/1987 CE, it states that 79% of men beat their womenfolk, especially if they are married…! (al-Qabas newspaper, 15/2/1988).

2 - A study carried out by the National American Office for Mental Health states the following:

- 17% of women who go to emergency rooms are victims of beatings by their husbands or boyfriends.

- 83% of those who have previously been admitted to hospital at least once for treatment of injuries, were admitted as a result of beating.

The study added that there are more women who do not go to hospital for treatment, but deal with their injuries at home.

3 - In a report of the Central American Agency for Examination [FPT] it states that every 18 seconds there is a woman who is beaten by her husband somewhere in America.

4 - American Time magazine stated that around 4,000 wives out of approximately 6 million who are beaten die as a result of that beating.

5 - In a German study it said that no less that 100,000 women annually are exposed to acts of physical or psychological abuse on the part of their husbands or the men they live with. The real figure may exceed one million.

6 - In France, approximately 2 million women face beatings.

7 - In Britain, in an opinion poll in which 7,000 women took part, 28% of them said that they had been subjected to attacks by their husbands and boyfriends.

Curiously missing is any mention of Muslims beating their wives.

Love in Islam is more general and more comprehensive; it is not restricted only to one kind of love, that between a man and a woman. There are many more kinds of love. There is the love of Allaah, love of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them), love for good and righteous people, love and support for the religion, love of martyrdom for the sake of Allaah.

The holiday for suicide bombers – yes. The innocent celebration of love and affection by non-Muslims – NO.

  • '...womenfolk...'?????

    It lost all credibility right there.

    Of course, today's post is a great exaample of the fundamental difference between Christianity and Islam - love.
