Valentine’s Day

Who is Valentine!

Saint Valentine was a Roman Priest at a time when there was an emperor called Claudias who persecuted the church and he prohibited the marriage of young people.

This was based on the hypothesis that unmarried soldiers fought better than married soldiers because married soldiers might be afraid of what might happen to them or their wives or families if they died.

The idea of encouraging them to marry within the Christian church was what Valentine was about. And he secretly married them.

Valentine was eventually caught, imprisoned and tortured for performing marriage ceremonies against command of Emperor Claudius.

Valentine while in jail prayed with and healed a young blind girl.  In the year 269 AD, Valentine was sentenced to execution. Many people make the pilgrimage to the church to honor the courage and memory of this Christian saint, “saint of lovers”.

Muslim countries banned Valentine’s day

That’s why a lot of Muslim countries banned Valentine’s day for being Un-Islamic. Valentine is a Christian Saint!. Countries like Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Iran….!

Anyway to the normal people and the lovers who celebrate “Day of Love”  . 

Happy Valentine’s Day
