History of Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day

The ancient Romans may also be responsible for the name of our modern day of love. Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine — on Feb. 14 of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine's Day.

Why do we celebrate Valentine's Day history?

Origins of Valentine's Day: A Pagan Festival in February. Celebrated at the ides of February, or February 15 14, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Fauns, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

Why Don’t Muslims Celebrate Valentine’s Day?

In Short; If you look into history and origins of Valentine Day, plus the values this celebration promotes today, the answer to your question will be very clear. Muslims don’t blindly follow the crowd 
when it comes to celebrations of any kind. Islam promotes love among people and the exchange of gifts is one way for love and good relations to increase in society but does not restrict the expression of this brotherly, sisterly, martial, or familial love to just one day a year.
