Actress and model Zainab Jamil, who was famous for different roles in Pakistani dramas, has announced she will quit the showbiz industry to learn more about the teachings of Islam.
The 31-year-old made an announcement on her Instagram page, saying “I am proud to announce that I have quit acting and modelling.”
Taking to the photo and video-sharing app, she also thanked Allah Almighty for giving her “the privilege of studying Qur’an and Hadith.”
“I will now live my life according to Islamic teachings and get the most out of Islam,” she added.
Zainab Jameel has acted in several dramas of Geo Entertainment, like Sada Sukhi Raho, Susral Meri Bahen Ka, Manchli, Mil Ke Hum Na Milla and Aapke Kaneez.
Just last month, Pakistani model Anam Malik recently embraced hijab and she has now decided to bid farewell to the glamorous world of showbiz and modeling.
Taking to her Instagram stories, the model hinted at quitting showbiz to follow the path of Islam.
Thanking her friends and fans, Anam Malik addressed the elephant in the room – her decision to say goodbye to the Tinseltown.
Anam said that she will reveal the details later, as she is exploring a lot of new things right now.
Anam is a proud mommy of two adorable daughters, Ayat and Alaya. She is married to singer and songwriter Jibran Raheel. Here are some of her gorgeous photos where she can be seen flaunting her hijab.
Halima Aden quits fashion industry to follow Islam
Recently, the hijab-wearing Muslim model, Halima Aden, also quit runway fashion shows to follow her religious beliefs. In a series of Instagram posts, the 23-year-old American-Somalian model said that the fashion industry had made her stray away from religion.
“I can only blame myself for caring more about opportunity than what was actually at stake,” wrote Aden. Aden was the first hijab-wearing Muslim model to represent many world-famous brands during her career as a model.
Aden said that despite trying to stick to her religious beliefs, she often felt pressured and uncomfortable during photoshoots.
The model said that the ongoing pandemic “opened” her eyes. “I have finally realized where I went wrong in my personal hijab journey,” said Aden.
