Each Valentine Day which the whole world celebrates, our honorable Muslim scholars issue their annual circular banning Muslims from celebrating the day considering it as a festival of westerners.
The forums dedicated to incriminate those who celebrate the occasion disregard the spirit of the idea and its noble goals.
They only concentrate on the wrong practices of some individuals during their celebrations.
Our attention to this day, to the one day in the year that’s dedicated to love and relationships, is an affirmation of emotional current that runs counter to all the humdrum concerns about politics, to worries about financial planning and the economy, governance and all the intrusive irritants of daily life.
Valentine day is, instead, a celebration of the simple emotional bods that bind us into loving couples, families and communities that care about each other.
It is acknowledgement of the value of formalizing a reminder to ourselves that it’s not enough to love someone, it is important to tell them in intimate terms how much we care.
Why don’t our Muslim Scholars Council considers the day as a social occasion at a time when all of us need to promote love, peace, tolerance and pepping up.
We are living in the era of slaughtering, burning people alive, injustice and hatred, so Valentine Day could be an opportunity to recall the noble and great meaning of our faith.
Many returns to Sudan People in love and recovery.
