Nasir shed light on the significance of sacrifice. he said:

Today when the world is on the verge of destruction, there is a dire need to incorporate the quality of sacrifice in ourselves following the foot steps of Abrahim and Ishmael. Having this spirit in ourselves we can save our generations and thus can lead to the path of peace and tranquility.

As Ahmadi Muslims, we should rectify our hearts through prayers, tolerance and service to humanity,” he further added. The celebration came to end at 11:30 pm.
