He related many traditions from life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) which mention about service for fellow beings without any discrimination of religion.
He congratulated the volunteers who are fulfilling the sunnah of our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) by serving the patients and stated that it’s important that parents nurture spirit of volunteerism and servitude in their kids at young age by telling them about Seerah so that we have more such people who are willing to sacrifice their time, efforts and money for the sake of serving the humanity.
