POEM: No Valentine's Day In Islam

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

The Islamic ruling on saint valentine's day:

Just reminding loved ones to celebrate
The fact that V-Day is not in Islam.
In Islam there's no saint Valentine's Day -
There are only two Eids we understand.
So as Muslims there's no need to wear red,
Crimson or pink to value this vile day.
Wear other colors, white or black instead -
Let friends know that it's just another day.
Deeds are rewarded by their intentions,
So make all your actions for Allah's sake.
V-Day is among shaytan's inventions.
Don't decorate your love just on this day.
Wives and husbands should prove their love always,
Through staying loyal, being forgiving,
Supplicating for one's spouse night and day,
And protecting each other from all sins.
Those who are single can wait for that time
When Allah blesses them with the best spouse,
Whose companionship can strengthen and guide,
And teach true love - despite their whereabouts.
I recall that time when gifts were exchanged
At an English private school I went to.
Some ignorantly celebrate V-Day.
Others I support in sharing the truth.
The truth: Islam is peace, some roses red,
Sunnah to smile, not all violets are blue.
If you can't stay single, fast or get wed.
Only Allah knows that our love is true.

May Allah the Most Merciful forgive all our sins, accept all our good deeds, answer all our du'as and reunite us with our Muslim loved ones in Jannatul Firdaus near Allah and His noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
