A while ago in October, Hamza Ali Abbasi took to social media to tell people that he was going to make a big announcement by the end of the month, and it had people speculating. Last night, he finally revealed what he wanted to share in a 23 minute long video:
Cutting it short, Hamza shared his journey from being an atheist to falling back for Islam, he also shared how he will be using his social media mediums to talk about Allah and spread the message of Islam. He also apologised to the masses if he had ever hurt them in anyway. The announcement had him trending on number 1 on Twitter:
Revealing more about his spiritual journey, he shared how he was quitting acting, for a long time at least, and planned on producing content that talked about Islam and the betterment of the country. And the internet was pleased with the direction he was headed in:
Hamza Ali Abbasi decides to leave Film industry for a very long time & that too when he is on his peak, that’s a very big step
May Allah help him…
Good luck for your new life ahead❤️#HamzaAliAbbasi
