I liked the songs she liked. She was a very caring woman. Some things I didn’t have in me I learned from her, one of which was her self respect . She did not express her weakness to anyone except Allah.
She preferred to be hungry rather than borrow. She used to help people without favor. She did not give importance to money at all. She never bargained on principles. Nad –e- Ali, the son of Nayyara Noor, while expressing himself at the ceremony, said that the Pakistan-India cricket match was incomplete for me because my mother was not with me. Whenever there was a recording, Ami always made sure that we had everything we needed wherever we were.
Ami’s best feature was that she was the mother of all. She loved everyone very much. She was a good wife and mother. She used to help someone with monthly expenses. She is among us. Sultan Arshad said while talking that today we have gathered here to remember Nayyara Noor. Nayyara Noor was like my younger sister. I and Nayyara used to sing together. We were together for two years. In two years there are two thousand things that will remain in my mind.
I can say with certainty. No one else can sing the kind of songs that Nayyara sang. Salima Hashmi expressed her views and said that the head of Nayyara throat was not from here but from the other world. On the day Nayyara and Sherry got married, it was very foggy.

In the seventies, Nayyara and Shehryar were in love and their marriage was solemnized in a great song.
Pray for Nayyara. May Allah grant her a place in Jannat al-Firdaus. She was such a good woman that I am sure she will be in Jannah. Dr. Karamat Ali, speaking at the ceremony, said that one aspect of Nayyara ‘s character is that she loves her people. Nayyara was aware of the class and poor problems of this country. Nayyara sang a theme song for us free of cost. I salute her. You must listen to the theme song that Nayyara sang. It was a song of people’s voices that Nayyara sang for no one.
