The ruling on buying boxes of tissues with love hearts on them


What’s the ruling on the love hearts which are on the box of tissues?


This is wrong, this contains a false creed, a group of the people of knowledge mention it, that they come with this picture with a false creed and the Muslims imitate them, so change this, if he bought a box of tissues other than this (one) which has love hearts, and a person avoids that which has drawings of love hearts, all of this is wrong, even our youth have been affected by this so much that you see on the house of the newly married are drawings of love hearts, this is from imitating the Kuffaar.

You find for example a house with love hearts and colours of love hearts and likewise also here and there, and this is imitating the Kuffaar, sarcasm! sarcasm! What do you want? Ya’nee this is an indication that you love her and she loves you? Some people…, as they say have no taste, timing is from Allah, and success is from Allah and legislated marriage,

(وَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِهِمْۚ لَوْ أَنفَقْتَ مَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا مَّآ أَلَّفْتَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِهِمْ)

“And He has united their (i.e. believers’) hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts.” [Al-Anfaal: 63]

(وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةًۚ)

“And He has put between you affection and mercy.” [Ar-Rum: 2]

It’s from Allaah, it’s not because of that heart you drew, she draws a heart and he draws a heart, and this one sends her a heart and she sends him a heart, all of this is from imitating the Kuffaar and from ignorance.
