Hamza Ali Abbasi Takes U-Turn, Says Did Not Quit Acting
Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi has said on Saturday, that he has not quit acting and he will work in films and dramas that are directed within the boundaries of Islam.
Journalist and writer Mahwash Ajaz tweeted on Saturday, “really wish Hamza hadn’t quit acting.” In response, Hamza said that he has not quit acting as he has not found anywhere in Islam that acting is prohibited. The actor said he had only taken a long break from acting so that he could learn more about Islam. “In Sha Allah will make and maybe act in projects made within boundaries Allah has set,” he added.
Thankyou❤. 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.
