Pakistan’s entertainment industry is at its boom, yet there are many celebrities who have left the glamorous life for the sake of Islam with their our own will. Many of them were at the peak of their career and were uncrowned kings and queens of the industry.
Hamza Ali Abbasi
Hamza Ali Abbasi quits showbiz for Islam. Famous actor Hamza Ali Abbasi has announced to quit the showbiz industry, saying that his decision is based on 10-year long research.
Singer Rabi Pirzada left the showbiz industry after her objectionable videos went viral on Internet in 2019. Before quitting the industry, Pirzada took to social media and wrote a small message, quoting an Ayah from the Quran.
“I, Rabi Pirzada, hold myself aloof from the showbiz (from now onwards). May Allah (SWT) absolve my sins and soften people’s hearts in my favor,” Rabi Pirzada tweeted. She also quoted an ayat from Quran which says, “You (Allah) honor whom You will and You humble whom You will.”
After serving the industry for the past 25 years, she has decided to part ways with the industry and want to dedicate her rest of life in service of Islam. She revealed she had been getting abundant singing offers from different countries, but she declined all these offers due to ‘religious obligations’.
