In this book has some info about valentine :
- Ken Sweiger the article “Should Biblical Christians Observe It?” says word “Valentine” comes from the Latin word meaning the Almighty, the Most Powerful, and the Almighty. This word is addressed to Nimrod and Lupercus, the Roman god. then realized it or not, -written Ken Sweiger- if we ask people to be “to be my Valentine”, it means that invited him to become the Almighty. In Islam this is called Syirik, which means associating partners with Allah.
- Still associated with Valentine as a day of love, would often see the symbol of cupid on Valentine’s knick-knacks. Cupid (mean:the desire), the baby with the winged arrow is the son of Nimrod “the hunter”, the god of the sun. Called the god of love, because he is so handsome he even hunted woman doing indecent acts with his own mother. (Source:Eramuslim)
In my opinion, in this novel, the secret revealed the origin of valentine with any deviation to the Islamic Shari’a. And also persistence Puput to stick fast to the principle that Valentine was not allowed. The novel also reveals how the friendship actually, where for the sake of our friends will be dealing with anything to help him, even though it’s death.
