Hamza Ali Abbasi last appeared in a drama called ‘Alif’ and has been awol since then from our tv screens. Reportedly, the star was on a spiritual journey. During his time off-screen, he tied the knot, had a baby, and started working on a book about his journey.
There were also rumours online that said Abbasi has decided to leave the entertainment industry following his spiritual awakening. However, Abbasi denied reports in a recent interview with host Sarfraz Niazi. Hamza will be soon back on the silver screen with the highly-anticipated Maula Jatt.
During the interview, Niazi asked many difficult questions from Hamza regarding his spiritual awakening, belief system, work, etc. Abbasi, who is open about his religious beliefs, said, “It was more of an intellectual problem for me. Ever since I was a child, I figured there were only two ways to go about this.”
What caused spiritual awakening for Hamza Ali Abbasi?
Niazi asked him what caused his spiritual awakening, an incident perhaps? He explained, “First was if someone did make us, there is life after death, and we will be held accountable for our actions, and if that’s so, then there’s a different kind of life that I will pursue. And if there is nothing, we are born out of an accident through the blind forces of nature, and there’s no life after death, then obviously I’d live a different life. A YOLO kind of life. So, it was an intellectual problem for me because there were two lives that I could lead, and they were dependent on the answer to these inquiries.”
“I ended up finding the answer to my inquiry. So, when people ask me why I am the way I am, I tell them it’s not like I believe in Islam. I have simply run out of reasons to deny or challenge it. That’s why it was important for me to correct myself and turn my life around.”
Is Music and Film Haram?
Khan was asked whether he thinks the entertainment industry is haram, to which he responded, “If the question is whether I think work like music, film and drama is haraam, then I have reached the conclusion that it is not. As long as you stay within the limits defined by God, then it isn’t.”
