I thought islam was the relegion of peace not peaceful enough to let lovers celebrtae their love.I know there was a saint valentine but no-ones really worshipping a saint.As it is im going out to dinner i know my boyfriend has probably bought me some cute soft toy and a card.And i have got him a small gift and a card and we'll both have a nice time why are muslims boycotting that
