This was supposed to bring fertility and essentially “love” to the Phoenix Suns Cool Snoopy Shirt . Later the Catholic church merged the celebration of Lupercalia and St. Valentines day in order to convert and appease pagans (a common practice by the early Catholic church). By doing so the pagans could still practice their traditions under the guise of Christianity with only modern modifications (in this case such things like keeping their clothes on). However even if we chose to ignore the roots and look at this as a secular holiday which is “just fun” it has a clearly negative societal impact. Think first of the environmental impact of all the wasted paper from valentines cards, the hardship for people who are low income who feel they have to provide their children with valentines cards to distribute or cards for their loved ones, and of course the psychological impact of teaching there is one day a year that we show people we love them more than other days.
The Muslim stance is that we should show that kind of love and Phoenix Suns Cool Snoopy Shirt every single day. People grow up making this “day of love” so important that couples break up because someone forgot a gift, or a reservation, or didn’t propose on the supposedly most romantic day of the year. People who don’t have dates on this “auspicious” day end up feeling depressed and inadequate. Not to mention that playing into this celebration means feeding massive corporate greed that sets out to market so much stuff that we don’t need and which ends up filling our garbage dumps, contributing to over indulgence of sweets and increased rates of diabetes. Being that all of those are contrary to living an Islamic life they would at minimum be discouraged without the religious context.
