After actresses like Sana Khan and Zaira Wasim, another actress has quit the world of glitz and glamour to follow a religious path. Bhojpuri actress Sahar Afsha has quit the entertainment world to follow Islam. Announcing the decision, she said that she wants to repent before Allah and seek forgiveness.
Sahar Afsha quits showbiz for Islam
She announced her decision a couple of weeks ago on Instagram where she wrote, “Dear Brothers and Sisters, in the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful, I want to let you know that I have chosen to leave Showbiz and will no longer be involved. I want to live my future life in accordance with Islamic teachings and with Allah’s blessings.”
“I’m grateful to my fans for bestowing upon me many blessings, including fame, honor, and fortune. I had not even pictured this life in my childhood. I stumbled into this industry just by chance and kept on growing. But now I have decided to renounce my Showbiz lifestyle, repent before Allah, and seek His forgiveness. I intend to live my next life according to the commands and preachings of Allah.”
She asked her fans and loved ones to pray that Allah accepts her apology.
“Hence, I request everyone to pray that Allah accepts my repentance, blesses me with the strength to live in line with my resolve to spend my life upholding the laws of my Creator and serving mankind, and gives me the perseverance to do so. And I hope that I will be remembered not for my past life but for the life to come.”
Commenting on this post by Sahar Afsha, ex-actress Sana Khan wrote, “MashAllah my sister so happy for you. May Allah give you success in every step of your life, and may you inspire everyone around you and become zaziya-e-khair for mankind.”
It is notable that actress Zaira Wasim quit acting in June 2019 citing her religious commitment to Islam. In October 2020, actress Sana Khan left showbiz citing her love for Allah. Now Sahar Afsha has announced that she is also leaving the film industry for similar reasons.
Pakistani singer Abdullah Qureshi also took a similar decision recently, as he announced on the 6th of October 2022 that he has quit the music industry for Islam.
