belated valentines day post.!!
ya, on FB and media, there was a huge debate about whether halal or haram or ok or not ok , to celebrate Vday...I stayed very quiet on this matter ! I have friends who celebrated and friends who equally thought its tantamount to being a murtad. My own children told me the origin is from some christian battle or saint and its not good to celebrate it. Semua orang tak approve.
Sekali sekali! My husband came home with a gorgeous deep red roses with deep red carnation floral arrangement . 6 roses and 6 carnation. You should have seen him. I was at home, Ustaz was teaching the kidsmengaji. In the middle of recitation, husband came home. He walked in, came to where I was (at the dining table) planted a kiss on my forehead and said loudly "HAPPY VALEN--!!-and then I pinched him, he looked up at Ustaz and petered off...ye lah, takut dia marah!
heheheh anticlimax tol for him!
What do I think about it then?
Since i don't get flowers normally, I'm grateful that there IS a day marked for husbands to remember their wives . and for love to be celebrated generally. So Im ok with Valentines Day. Im not ok with the name, who the heck was Valentine and what has he got to do with me and my husband. I think it should be renamed, so that it has no religious or other connotation kan? How about calling it a "Love Day/RomentikadiAmor day" . Ok kan??
BUT!! If Love Day is ok, what Love Day may lead to I tak setuju sangat and want to prevent lar. among muslims and actually amongst non muslims - ie celebrating your love between the sheets ! Kalau kawin tu, nevermind lar...at least there IS a day when you get some ha ha. But for those youngsters and in love?? 14 year olds with 19 year old bf? That would be the day they er...give themselves away. Is this really a strictly Muslim worry though. Actually I think non muslim parent pun won't be ok with the thought of their unmarried late teens early 20s kids doing IT? They may well have been free in the past, but I believe most parents, when they become parents, will suddenly want their daughters to all wear PURDAH when it comes to men, regardless of religion --especially the DADS! EK?? Tol tak?? hehehehe!
I love the concept of Love but not the unwedloving ... I am concerned also with the statistic (Supplied by DadofSix with his 2 girls)- that every 17 minutes, there is a child born out of wedlock in Malaysia. EEPS!(you have to guard your boys too!)..But , to tell this to our youngsters ...susah kan? So have to be subtle lar..and have to get cooperation from many ppl.
So I propose that we do this:
1. On or around this Love Day, all hotels will only accept booking from couples with married certs only. Of course, this will apply to Muslims . I cant imagine ada orang Islam that will protest..berani tak nak declare...I have the right to commit sin! Yeah, but I also think Islam is like Alcoholic Anonymous-we need Intervention! ha ha..this will not be popular with the hotblooded youngsters but when they have kids, they will understand.....
2. All parks will have very bright lights! No hidden corner! also safe for ladies
Every year this becomes an issue. This and rock concert. So waste time. But since it is an issue, let's pay attention to it all year round. We should not panic when one political party calls for it to be banned. I would not want this day to be banned...cause otherwise I wont get this bunga bunga (simple minded, me) ...but I think we should be very smart...and deal with this in a smart way....where there is political will kan...semua boleh jadi..I think that hotel idea would be very easy to implement....if our politicians back it up...unless of course...they want to be the ones booking rooms with their gf!
Tak pek den nak nolong do! hihihi!
