Afghans attended the Eid al-Adha prayer in a peaceful environment and under tight security measures across the country.
Addressing the Eid sermons on Friday, religious scholars called on the people to stay united and say no to those who want to create ethnic and religious rifts among Afghans.
Those who attended the Eid prayers, asked anti-government armed groups to lay down their weapons and join the peace process.
"Our unity is our success. The enemy wants to create division among us," said Ayaz Niazi, a religious scholar from Kabul.
Kabul residents said militants should stop bloodshed in the country and choose a peaceful life.
“I hope that terrorists say no to foreigners and become the servants of their own people,” said Mir Patang, a resident of Kabul.
“My message to anti-government armed groups is to join the Afghan people in reconstruction of Afghanistan,” said Shoaib, another resident of Kabul.
“For the sake of Allah, stop violence. We all are Muslims. We are not infidels that you kill us,” another Kabul resident, Mohammad said.
In the eastern Nangarhar province, religious scholars urged the people to keep their unity and stay alert against any propaganda by terrorists.
This comes after Imam Zaman Mosque in Kabul was targeted by a coordinated militant attack last week, where dozens of worshippers were killed and wounded.
In his Eid message, President Ashraf Ghani condemned attacks on mosques and called on the people to stay united against any plots by the enemies of Afghanistan.
