Video inside: Only the stupidest Muslims would still celebrate Valentine’s day


Ustaz Azhar Idrus is well known for the funny undertones of his speeches, and for his witty answers to questions filed to him through his sermons.

And this video where he is speaking about the reasons why Malaysian Malays should not celebrate Valentine’s day is as hilarious.

He said only the ‘stupidest among the stupids’ would still celebrate the day.

Explaining why the 14th of February is not an occasion to celebrate, he told the audience only the lowest or ugliest of cows in a competition among cows would go and celebrate or make wishes on that day.

He said the day marked a celebration for Saint Valentino, a Spanish priest who had forced the conversion of at least one million Muslims in Spain and as a result of this, he was granted the wish to marry his lover.

He then unleashes a sarcastic remark in which he said when the religious figures tell the Malays not to celebrate, the young ones would fight back saying the ‘Ustaz do not know anything’.

He started the video saying the laws about Valentine day is that it is haram for Muslims to celebrate such a day.

He said the priest Saint Valentino’s wedding day became Valentine’s day.

Azhar Idrus is well respected among the Muslims in Malaysia. Some said he did not mean any offence to the non-Muslims in the video.


  1. Perhaps Mr Idrus does not understand the meaning, to celebrate. And in the context of Valentines Day, it is all about Love.
    He has to open his Heart to love, to forgive and for Compassion to flow through. By frightening the Population on ‘Haram’, he himself has forgotten what is Love, Compassion and Forgiveness all about. Let us not dwell on Negatives and Hypocrisy but open up our Hearts to live life to the fullest and not being Judgemental as none of us are Perfect.

  2. A good preacher. .of any religion….will never condemn another religion, let alone any festive or celebration. Only those preachers who have shallow mind or a mind that is sick will create or promote hatred or condemned other festivities or celebrations. Those preacher who says bad about others. ..either have an extreme hatred mind or of an unsound mind. Such men are dangerous. ..they only create troubles. this otherwise Peace and Loving world. May such extreme minded person perish from the surface of this earth…Amen.
