Waseem Ahmad, Macedonia Correspondent
On 31 July 2020, Eid-ul-Adha was offered in Macedonia. Eid prayer was offered in two centres of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Macedonia, situated in Pehchevo and Berovo.
During the Eid sermon, the philosophy of Eid-ul-Adha was explained in light of sayings of the Promised Messiahas and Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa, that the purpose of celebrating this Eid is in fact the sacrifice of our nafs and not just sacrificing animals, whereas the act of sacrificing animals, serves as a way to attain the true purpose, which is Allah the Almighty.
Silent prayer followed the Eid sermon. After that, attendees were served with coffee.
On the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, with the collaboration of Humanity First Germany, seven cows were sacrificed. The meat was distributed in six cities of the country, benefitting 735 families.
Seven volunteers took part in this distribution, and worked very hard.
The local media appreciated these efforts of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Macedonia. Alhamdolillah
