Muslims told Valentines 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 Valentines 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 Valentines 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 Islams 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 Sweigers 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 Valentines 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 Islams 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 Islams laws.
In the text of the sermon prepared by Jawi, it claimed that February 14 was celebrated as Valentines 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 governments official sermon called on Muslims not to be influenced by Western culture and celebrate Valentines Day, which falls on Wednesday next week.
Valentines 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-Valentines 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 partys Youth wing urged the federal government to exert greater control over Valentines Day advertisements to curb social ills.
Worthless Saracen bastards.

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.
I know, I know ... I too am stifling my gag reflex.
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.

How long before the muslim president ends Valentine’s Day by executive order. And this will make Boner cry.
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?
