Former actress Sanam Chaudhry is among the Pakistani celebrities who quit the glamorous world of showbiz to devote their lives to Islam. In a recent interview, the former actress talked about her journey towards religion.

Sanam Chaudhry advised everyone that following and idolising someone other than Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Allah only distances us from God and his Prophet. She added that she was continuously working hard to achieve more but something was missing in her life.

“Then I came to realize that although Allah was always with me, I was only using Him.”

The former actress stated that contrary to her belief that peace comes from money, fame, and relationship, the emptiness inside her made her realize that peace is only found in God.

Sanam Chaudhry also revealed how reading the translation of Surah Baqarah proved to be a turning point in her career. “When I recited Surah Baqarah, where it says, ‘Woh muslamaan tou hain par mominnahi [although they are Muslims they are not believers]’, I reflected on why I do not follow the teachings of Islam despite being a Muslim,” she said.

The former actress announced to quit showbiz industry last year in August. Sanam deleted all her photos from social media. Before quitting showbiz, she was part of a number of drama serials including Aasmanon Pay Likha, Shiza, Mere Meherbaan, and Ishq Hamari Galiyon Mein.
