Valentine Day Forever

Valentine Day Forever

February 14th, the day of red hearts and cupids. This day offers a wonderful chance to express or endorse their love.  I never understood why we only set aside one day per year to focus on one of the most important things in the world “LOVE” Seems to me everyday should be the day for expressing how much we love and care for others. Love can’t be measure in terms of sending cards, flowers to any one but it can be measure in terms of love and care you share among your loved one.


“Love does not make the world go around; it simply makes the ride worthwhile”.


What love means to you? Love means different things to different people but there are a lot of things about love that people can agree. This is not just a single day but feelings forever.


Why not every day should be Valentine’s Day! Because it is love that makes the world go round not money! You are here today because of love, not money! Think for a moment, take away love and you will find the world will be an empty shell lacking meaning and passion! The world has suffered great destruction because of power, ignorance and greed, and the antidote is love and wisdom!


The biggest offenders are the music channels catering to the youth of Pakistan, with their countless live shows, ticker tape for dedications and stupid love songs. Last year, I had to turn off my TV because I was sick of reading silly dedications on the ticker tape running at the bottom of the screen. Lines like “you complete me” or “life is nothing without you” are unoriginal.


Valentine’s day was probably invented by greeting card companies who needed an excuse for people to spend money on stuffed toys, cards, chocolates and balloons. Instead of going all out and buying foolish presents on just this day, a better idea to keep each other happy would be to do something special.


So, don’t celebrate just Valentine’s Day. Make every day special through thoughtful gestures instead of wasting time and money on cheesy gifts.


A day that can produce feelings of overwhelming loneliness and grief only for those people who restricted their life to express the feelings and emotions just limited to only single day.


If we approach the holiday as a celebration Valentine’s Day should be just another excuse to spread the love that Islam encourages. And this doesn’t mean that you need a significant other to celebrate love. . This day should not be restricted only to romantic love.


You can express your love to your family, send flowers to your friends, do something fun at your college/university or make a difference for your country.

    if this day should be restricted to romantic love,then there is no point celebrating this day on 14 Feb.Choose another day with different name and spread love as much as one can to either family friends or relatives apart from being confined to apposite sex.

    “So,don’t celebrate just Valentine’s Day. Make every day special through thoughtful gestures instead of wasting time and money on cheesy gifts,” You say,Mr.Khan. Yeah, you are absolutely right. What “thoughtful gestures” can be other than that the “love-birds” in co-ed institutions cut classes to spend amorous time in parks, libraries(as rendezous only) hotels and movie houses,etc.Lo! Another “beautiful” point in the penultimate paragraph! You say,” If we approach the holiday as a celebration Valentine’s Day just be another excuse to spread the love that Islam encourages.”Ah, what a fantastic fusion of Saint Valentine’s Day and Islam! Bravo! I was disappointed to find no reference to Islam in your article on Saint Valentine’s Day but for in the concluding paragraphs. .


    By the time They publish my comments on your blog Valentine Day it will be your Mother-in-Law Day!

    Nice Article, Love is a feeling of every moment which u feel deeply whether its for your parents, your wife, your children or your other family members or friends, so y to celebrate just one day for this feeling, i totally agree the point mentioned that valentine day has direct association with greeting cards makers, so that their business cycle keep running, earlier I, myself celebrated this day but after thinking that we don’t know the real history of this day then y r we celebrating this day, even knowing that love is a feeling which can be appear any moment not only on 14 February, So from now on I stopped celebrating this day. My each day is Love Day & My Each moment is love moment when I treat my family, my friends with love.
