Fans were left in a grieve shock last year when Pyarey Afzal actor Hamza Ali Abbasi announced that he was quitting showbiz industry and going to preach Islam. The actor, in a video message, said that he was going to distance himself from showbiz in order to learn more about religion and follow the righteous path.
In the video, Hamza also stated his reasons for distancing himself from the industry. The actor said that he has been thinking about dedicating his life completely to Islam for last 10 years and wanted to spend a peaceful life, close to Allah.
“This [decision] is based on 10 years of research and during this time, I have worked on correcting myself which itself was a struggle,” Hamza said.
He further added that he will try to shape his life in accordance with Islam. Hamza Ali Abbasi also held that he will make content that would not be unethical or bold in any way.
However, seems the actor has finally realised the fact that as long as you remain in the limelight, people remember you and support you. Once you are vanished, no one takes your name. Maybe Hamza realised that it was necessary to remain in the industry and throw something in the market for the audience. That’s why he has said that he ‘hasn’t quit acting, and he doesn’t see it as haraam in Islam’.
Recently, a fan of the Parwaaz Hai Junoon actor tweeted that he wanted to see Hamza making more content and wished that he hadn’t quit acting. Replying to her, the actor wrote:
“Thank you. As i said in my video, i haven’t quit acting bcz i dont see it any whr in Islam as being haraam in itself. I just took a long break from acting to give more time to religion & insha Allah will make & maybe act in projects made within boundaries Allah has set for us,” he wrote.
Not sure if we should wait and see him back on the screen again or just wish that he should succeed on whichever path he has chosen. Fans are just eagerly waiting to watch his last project ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt‘.
