VALENTINES

Valentine's - True Love or Commercial Gimmick?

Faizel Patel, Radio Islam News


14th February is popularly known as 'Valentine's Day'. Adolescent girls and boys express their love for each other by exchanging flowers and gifts as a token of love on this day.

Most of the times, these adolescents indulge in immoral acts under the pretext of 'Valentine's Day'. Does real love require this superficial display and can it be confined to just one day? 'Valentine's Day' is responsible for the propagation of western culture and incitement of youth towards unrestrained behaviour. It is the western custom to put parents in old age homes and then celebrate flashy Mother's Day and Father's Day love which is put on display for just one day

The malls have been painted red. Roadside stalls have blossomed overnight bearing roses, and fluffy teddy bears that whisper soothing poetry to passers by. "Come on buy me, I need a special home and I cost a fortune." This is Valentines days! Is this day a total gimmick, farce or just another way to smooch your cash away for that someone special and leave you with sweet nothing?

Today we are blindly following the western culture under the name of 'Valentines Day'. The young students of schools and colleges are falling prey to such culture and express their love to each other by way of exchanging greeting cards. But actually speaking it is not love but a mere attraction to the opposite sex at a tender and immature age.

There are varying opinions as to the origin of Valentine's Day. Some experts state that it originated from St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D., the same day that had been devoted to love lotteries. Legend also says that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer's daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it "From Your Valentine". Other aspects of the story say that Saint Valentine served as a priest at the temple during the reign of Emperor Claudius. Claudius then had Valentine jailed for defying him. In 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius set aside February 14 to honour St. Valentine. read more

Celebrating Valentines is what others do.
Shaytan's present between the intimate 2,
so remember O Muslim,
Valentines is not 4 you.

STRANGE BUT TRUE
FACT

It’s scientifically proven that splashing cold water into your face helps you calm down!

Most of us probably do it every morning, just to freshen up or to snap out of that weird dream. It’s called “Mammalian Diving Reflex”. Of course this is not just about morning routines, as it also happens when you dive underwater.

The process may seem quick, but during those few seconds three changes occur in the body:

1. Your heart rate slows down up to 25 percent.

2. The blood flow to the limbs are reduced, just to make sure the brain and the heart receive enough oxygen.

3. There is a blood shift, but this only occurs during very deep dives. This allows the blood plasma and water to pass through organs to protect them against the increasing pressure.

That means that every time we are making wudhu & washing our faces (the Sunnah is 3x) then we are amazingly bringing 3x as much benefit to our bodies during different parts of the day. Subhanallah!!!

Make Prophet Muhammad sallalahu alayhi wasallam ur hero & u'l neva b a zero.
