There has been a rumor all over the internet that Pakistan’s iconic singer Atif Aslam is quitting the music industry.
In a recent interview with Hamid Mir on Geo News’ Capital Talk, the Wazirabad born singer put speculation to rest regarding his exit from Pakistan’s music industry.
“The topic of leaving the music industry is one that’s quite personal. But I want to keep myself attached to my religion while still being part of the world. I won’t say I will be giving up on music entirely, but I want to highlight important aspects of religion like the 99 names of Allah and Tajdar-e-Haram.”
“I feel happy knowing that there are youngsters who are not just listening to my music but are also getting inclined towards these things. But I am still not quitting music,” Atif added.
Recently, his video of reciting Azaan after COVID19’ broke out in Pakistan, took the internet by storm.

“I had heard that during the times of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), people used to go up to their roofs to recite the Azaan. That’s where the idea came from, and I just went with it without a second thought,” he said.
He further shared that he feels lucky to have worked on projects like Tajdar-e-Haram and Asma-ul-Hasna.
