Before it's for the floor open for open question after session. I would like to give a good news to you. Yesterday, I read in one of the news articles, the headline fed Asana con, the big boss, six star,
the TV cereal, and film actress quits bollywood, and showbiz. I would like to confess that I had not heard about the name of the sister Santa Han before. It is due to my ignorance. I'm not into the film media or the Bollywood. I normally read the newspaper The Main article, I never go to the section of Bollywood. But yesterday, this article came in the mainstream media.
And I would like to congratulate Mr. Shanahan for taking this decision in a life of quitting bollywood, and showbiz.
The article said that Pfister Sana Han
shot to fame
in the big boss series six, and she has acted in many of the TV serials the live and other TV serials and also in about 15 films, including blockbusters and films in Hindi language, as well as other languages like Tamil, etc. And the article said that she's very famous. She has more than 3.4 million followers on Instagram, and more than 2.2 million followers on Facebook.
And two days ago,
on Thursday, the eighth of October, sister Sana Khan, she mentions on her Instagram post, and other social media, an English Hindi, Urdu. He starts by saying, In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. She said that this industry have given her a lot of fame, wealth, and honor. And she'd like to thank all her fans for appreciating her. But she goes on to say that the last few days, there were many questions that had troubled her.
She wanted to know that what is the purpose of our life in this world? When will a person die? And what will happen after a person dies? And especially the second question that touched her, because of which she did physician
and she agreed that fame on and wealth is not the purpose of life, and is not everything in life. And because of that, she announced that she is quitting Bollywood and quitting the showbiz world because it is against her principles and the religion that she's following. And she mentioned in her post that she requests the brothers and sisters to pray that may Allah accept her repentance. And she also goes on to say that she requests that the people of the showbiz should not contact her for any assignments or for any acting or taking part in any of the showbiz world. And she also went on and deleted many of your photographs, which she felt was not appropriate.
I would like to congratulate sister Shanahan for taking this bold decision. And I'm aware that once you enter
the film industry, the Bollywood
the showbiz, and once you get famous to quit is extremely difficult to where the person is so much used to the glamour world, to the wealth to the fame, to quit this is extremely difficult. I would like to congratulate sister Santa Han, for taking this right decision, which I believe would have been one of the best decisions in our life, as she said.
And I would like to remind her that since she mentioned in a post that she requests, the brothers and sisters to pray for her that may Allah accept her repentance. I would like to inform her that there are five criteria for repentance to be accepted by Allah Spano tala in Islam. Number one is agree the thing you're doing is wrong. If it's a sin, you're repenting for agree what you're doing is wrong. Number two, stop it immediately. Number three, ask for forgiveness. Repent for it sincerely. Number four. Don't do it again. And number five, undo it if you can.
From the article,
it seemed that she has done most of these things.
She agreed that what she was doing was wrong. Alhamdulillah she stopped it immediately and she announced it to the world on social media platform Alhamdulillah she has repented sincerely and she said that an article on the Instagram post number four, she should not do it and inshallah I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that may Allah subhanaw taala keep her steadfast in this very important decision of life, and help her in preventing the temptation of the Satan. And inshallah, I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that may she continue with the decision. And the fifth and the last is undo if she can, and hamdulillah she had deleted many of the posts which she felt not appropriate
and appear to Allah subhanaw taala that may he guide her further to the straight path. I would like to give a suggestion to sister son upon that whatever she has done in the past, and whatever fame she has received, in this showbiz world, I would request requestor to utilize this for the betterment of our era. Since she's bothered, what will happen to after she dies, she saved the same as Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, Al Furqan surah number 25, verse number 70, that those who repent, Allah will change the evil into good. So I'd like to inform her the good news that Allah subhanaw taala inshallah has converted all the evil that have done in the past, after repented to
good deeds Alhamdulillah. And further, I'd like to tell her that she can utilize the same that she has for trying to get the other people who are in this world, in this showbiz world, in the film industry to the straight path. Since she may be having many friends in this industry, she can very well try and convince them Muslims or non Muslims to come to the straight path. It's unfortunate for me to inform the viewers that 1/3 of the Bollywood has got Muslims, whether it be actors, singers, producers, 1/3 of the people involved in this Bollywood in this industry, which is far away from the teachings of Islam from the teachings of Quran. in this industry. 1/3 of people involved are
Muslims. And it is not something to be proud of. But according to statistics, more than 50% of the people who are top in this industry are Muslims.
If you note, the list of the top five best actors in Bollywood, three would be Muslims, whether it be Shahrukh Khan or Salman Khan, or Aamir Khan, I wasn't aware. I know there are many other hands. Due to my ignorance, I did not know that there was even some icon in the film industry and a hamdulillah I would like to thank Allah subhanaw taala. I'd like to congratulate sister Sana Khan fully within the industry, and I request her that may influence others to follow her in this wise decision that she has taken.
And we are aware today
that unfortunately, the people that are maximum followed on the social media are the people from the film industry, from the singing world, more of it is haram. There are few sportsmen which is no problem. But unfortunately, most of the people who have the maximum number of followers, they are from the film industry, or the pop world or the singing world, whether it be on the YouTube, whether it be on the Facebook, whether it be on the Instagram, the religious people are way down. But if you look at the long term, average this person doesn't follow the religion because of faith, he does it to please is Greater Las panatela. But in the long term, there is no one who is more recognized,
more appreciated, more famous than religious personality. Today, if we do a survey, that Who is the most famous personality in the world, from the first human being till today? And the answer is undisputedly the last and final messenger of Allah subhanaw taala. That is Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Who is the second it is Prophet Jesus peace be upon him. Even though the media has changed yet. Today, the most influential person in the world is Brahma Salah Salam according to Michael chart, he writes in his book, The 100 most influential people in the world.
And he places though being a non Muslim, he places homosassa number one,
yes, amongst the people who are present be alive, it may be from this industry, but in the long term, inshallah it are the people who are closer to Allah subhanaw taala. So I request sister Santa Chan, I congratulate her first for taking this wise decision, and inshallah there will be many Muslim brothers and sisters who may have appreciated your step. And we stand by you in this decision. And we pray that my life give you the courage to continue and keep steadfast in the decision and to invite the people in this industry to the straight path of Allah subhanaw taala
