    How so? I have Muslim friends who celebrate so I'm confused
    They are not good Muslims.

    The particular couple are engaged but living separately and one of the other couples are just boyfriend and girlfriend
    So, what's your point?

    Hmm so even if married couples got each other flowers and cards saying HVD, it'd be 'haram'?
    No because like another user said, it's a celebration which doesn't stem from Islam.

    i have been told from a Muslim person that boyfriend and girlfriend relationship is allowed in Islam.
    btw that person is quite an extreme conservative
    I'm afraid you've been told wrong information. It's haram, you can ask any well respected scholar this.

    They're always angry over something. Ready to burn anything from US flags to Valentines cards. What a boring culture.
    They must enjoy banning things.

    I see. But surely just because a celebration doesn't stem from Islam doesn't make it inherently bad or immoral?

    yeah i seen it on BBC news. to be clear, from what ive heard India is in the same situation as Pakistan and that is a majority hindu state so dont go bashing muslims. the news broadcast asked people if pakistan whether they wanted to celebrate it or not and the responses for no wasnt to do with religion it was to do with the fact that people didnt think it was necessary to have a day to express love for someone it should be done all year round. No religion was mentioned. also can i ask is it full banned or just in areas, yu might want to change yout title to some areas of pakistan. its more of a cultural thing rather than relgious
    Hahaha, I can assure you that it is not banned in India, maybe frowned upon in rural areas but no where near being banned lol As an Indian Hindu, I know so many people that are out there in different parts of India celebrating it instead of protesting against it lol

    It is bad if I'm going against God's words.

    If we're talking about Valentine's day here, the issue isn't just the fact it has no basis in Islam, it's because it encourages haram relationships.
    It's no use to us, it's just a day where stores can gain profit.

    If you are still texting, emailing love messages, meeting up alone etc. it's still haram.

    It is at odds with what Islam teaches, we don't believe in saints, we don't have those kind of celebrations outside our two Eids.
    Some Muslims like myself, are even against Mawlid, so it would be hypocritical.

    You must have a great life, telling people they shouldn't love.

    but why???
    texting love messages make someone happy... it brings a smile on their faces
    how's this harm
    don't you like making someone happy?
    its so weird that Islam makes people to not hang around with boys yet Islam only allow people to marry with their opposite sex
    how can you expect from someone to marry a boy or a girl they have no idea who they are, completely strangers
    also if someone doesn't allow a girl for example to hang with a boy and always be with girls all the time, how can you not expect her to become homosexual...
