Muslims Told Valentine’s Day Can Invoke Wrath of God ("Allah")

Muslims told Valentine’s Day can invoke wrath of God

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 10 — An invitation “to be my Valentine” on February 14 is against Islamic beliefs and would incur the wrath of Allah, Muslims were told today in the official Friday sermon prepared by the federal government.

The sermon warned Muslims against celebrating Valentine’s Day, which the federal Islamic authorities claimed was in breach of the tenets of their religion.

In the text of a sermon provided by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) titled “Awas jerat Valentine” (Beware Valentine’s trap), Muslims were told that asking someone to be his or her “Valentine” could lead to idolatry.

The text of a second optional sermon prepared by the Federal Territory Islamic Department (Jawi), titled “Butakah Cinta?” (Is love blind?), likened celebrating the global day of romance to celebrating the anniversary of “Islam’s fall at the hands of Christians”.

Citing a person named Ken Swiger who purportedly wrote an article titled, “Should Biblical Christians Observe It?”, Jakim in the text of its sermon said the word “Valentine” originated from Latin and means “The Bravest, The Strongest, The Most Powerful” to refer to ancient Roman gods Nimrod and Lupercus.

The federal Islamic authority said it was wrong to ask someone to be his or her Valentine.

“Whether they realise or not, if a person asks another person or his partner to ‘Be my Valentine?’ it is clearly an act that is against the Islamic faith and that would invoke the wrath of Allah SWT.

“This is because they are asking a person to be their ‘Most Powerful’ this is the same as reviving the culture of idol worship,” the sermon said.

It added that “love can only be to Allah SWT [and to] his prophet”.

A quick search online failed to turn up details on Sweiger’s identity or the alleged article he wrote that Jakim had referred to.

Jakim said that the National Fatwa Council had sat in 2005 and declared that Islam did not sponsor Valentine’s Day, as the spirit of the celebration was mixed with vice activities which Islam forbids.

It urged Muslims to strengthen their faith, family and community through five steps, namely for parents to teach their children Islam’s true path; to forbid Muslims, especially teens from copying pagans; to sow feelings of love for Allah SWT and his prophet; for unmarried Muslims to keep away from mixed company; and to leave celebrations that are not provided for under Islam’s laws.

In the text of the sermon prepared by Jawi, it claimed that February 14 was celebrated as Valentine’s Day to commemorate the victory of the Christian government in an offensive against the Muslim government in Cordoba, Andalusia, which is now modern-day Spain.

“Therefore, is it right for Muslims to celebrate the fall of Islam at the hands of Christians? Should we worship and celebrate the arrogant declaration of a Christian priest?” it asked.

“Are there no other prominent Islamic leaders for us to worship and follow?” it said.

Both texts of the government’s official sermon called on Muslims not to be influenced by Western culture and celebrate Valentine’s Day, which falls on Wednesday next week.

Valentine’s Day celebrations have long taken on a commercial nuance since 1969, when the Roman Catholic Church dropped February 14 as the feast day of a purportedly beatified person named Valentine as it could not determine which one of three Christians to whom it was referred.

However, PAS Youth has been spearheading anti-Valentine’s Day celebrations the past few years.

It has claimed that the celebrations would lead to greater vice among Muslim youths.

This year, the Islamist opposition party’s Youth wing urged the federal government to exert greater control over Valentine’s Day advertisements to curb social ills.

Well my dearest, according to this article you're going to be incurring the wrath of allah next Tuesday. From what I understand, it's kind of like what happens when I eat jalapeno peppers and dried apricots.

And that’s just the beginning.

From: http://www.al-islami.com/islam/allah.php

Most Muslims append “(swt)” after mentioning Allah. This is an acronym for the Arabic words: “Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala,” which roughly translated means “The most glorified, the most high.” It is a way for Muslims to glorify Allah when mentioning His name.

Must reading for those who still wonder why obama never had a girlfriend in high school or college.
But MALE relationships are encouraged.
AND, in islam, to fulfill your duty as a muslim cleric, you must marry and not be celibate.

I have a very nice Valentine's Day planned for Mr Bear. I love to see him smile.

Super!

Dear Ask An Imam:

Does this mean it is haram to have relations with my goat on February 14th, because that is an act of love?
Am I limited to only having sex with my wife on that date, since that is just for reproduction & my pleasure with no regard for her?
Or must I just settle for raping an Infidel slut in the name of morality?

Abu Confused

Wrath of God on Valentine's Day!!

These skirt wearing bearded goat-loving towel headed mullahs haven't clue one about the the unleashing of the Wrath of God on Valentines day.

Here's my sad tale of woe, misery, and the Valentine's Day Wrath of God visitation upon my head.

Some years ago I decided to do something really special for the love of my life on that wretched Saint's day. We had a good sized co-op apartment mid-town Manhattan, liveried doormen and all. But one thing was missing. A dishwasher. She liked to entertain but the aftermath took a lot work for two smart professionals.

So, I decided to surprise my sweet darling on that holiday. From her work schedule posted on the fridge, just above my honey-do list, I noted that she would be out of town the week before that wretched day. I secretly got approval from the co-op board, my upstairs, downstairs neighbors and the old nasty broad across the hall to tolerate the tradesmen during the installation of the gleaming top of the line Rolls-Royce quiet, hyper-sanitizing,energy saving and greenie approved Euro wonder.

Yeah sure, I know what you're thinking out there in fly-over country, "What's the big deal? Easy week-end project, wallah!". Easy for you to say. To this very day there's not a single Home Depot in mid-town. Think on that while you're kicking back on the lawn chair having a cold brewski. Lining up union plumbers, union electricians and painters, not to mention the Euro-trash cabinet maker prentending not to understand English was like planning the D-Day invasion. No wonder Ike went bald.

Anyway, after the bribes to the doormen and elevator guys and fending off a lawsuit by the hag across the way, the job was done on time. Who knew that a friggin dishwasher could pull five figures from the bankroll. It's always the extras. The crowning touch was the pair of theater tickets and a dozen roses placed inside the wonder machine and wrapping it with a big red ribbon and bow and the obligator card. Damn. I felt proud of myself.

Set out the Dom in the ice bucket just before she came home, looking forward to her delightful surprise. Boy was she surprised!

Until that moment I never knew my darling help-mate could curse in so many languages that the entire UN translation would come to a screeching halt.

Did I mention screeching? All this before she opened the card or saw the theater tickets inside. Ever notice how women go deaf when they get really warmed up to the task? Except for the one word you say that sets them off on another vile attack. No amount of "but baby's" gets through that shield. After she landed a few shots to my head with the Hermes briefcase I pretty much went deaf but for the ringing in both ears. Don't remember much of the rest but needless to say we missed the show.

And here's the villain of the piece. Not the same one as the infernal device I bought that was so exclusive that royalty payments are required to post photos.

Looking back on that "day for lovers" I should have hired an illegal Guatemalan woman as a disher and spent the money to fly to the Superbowl. Cheaper and not to mention avoiding the Wrath of God on Valentines day.

Makes me think that the St. Valentine's Day Massacre masterminds were the ticked off Italian wives and not some so-called gang war. Come to think of it those guys got off easy. Those mullahs got nothing.

Have you had bad experiences or do you just think the day is sappy?

I was taken out on a date back in ‘07 bay a man in his late 40’s. (I was 31 at the time and desperate to go out on a date). He took me to see ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’. He didn’t pay attention to me and I was bored to death. It’s a kiddie movie,for Pete’s sake!

I had to but my own drink with quarters,nickels and dimes.

What fun!

I used to have no problem with it. A recent separation and divorce changed that. It's now just a reminder of what I had, what I lost, and what I no longer have. It's a day that mocks those who don't have that someone. That's my take.

I was taken out on a date back in ‘07 bay a man in his late 40’s. (I was 31 at the time and desperate to go out on a date). He took me to see ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’. He didn’t pay attention to me and I was bored to death. It’s a kiddie movie,for Pete’s sake!

Maybe he wasn't sure what kind of movie to take you to on a first date and wanted something wholesome. The pickings are slim for those kind of movies these days. But, not paying attention to you, and letting you get bored, is inexcusable. And not even springing for the drink is just wrong. Better luck next time!

It does seem to mock those of us who are single or even those who got divorced or who are about to. It's like a slap in the face,if you will.

As far as the date I went on is concerned,the man was recently divorced and was “rusty”,although you'd think he would have an idea about what to do on a date.

Every date I've ever went on was dull. We were thrown together so it's not as though we were friends/acquaintances beforehand who were interested in each other. School is far more important to me,anyway.
