Actor Nauman Ijaz in his latest interview has revealed that he performs wuzu before starting any project. He said that his acting abilities are the gift of god and that he performs ablution before beginning the shooting of any project which is a secret to his success.
Ijaz opened up about his struggle to leave the acting career to follow the religion. He said he prayed endlessly to God to make him leave the acting field but he could not.
“I do my job in a religious manner. Honesty naturally follows. I perform wuzu before I start working. This is God’s blessing. My method of acting is entirely, completely, totally different [from], I believe, the rest of the world,” said Nauman Ijaz in his interview with Express Tribune.
“Some 16-17 years ago, I became convinced of the fact that I should leave this line of work. That maybe God would not be pleased with it.”
Explaining how he’d pray for a way out of the acting profession, he added further, “I’d stand on the prayer mat and plead to God to get me out of this profession.”
Meanwhile Im really absorbed by #SangEMah. Some of our finest actors like Nauman Ejaz, Saaniya Saeed & Samiya Mumtaz add so much depth to an intriguing story & @itsaadee makes a fine debut. Also great they are addressing taboo subjects like addiction. A lush landscape well filmed pic.twitter.com/0BXfGQWluI

Nauman narrated how someone spiritual convinced him to pursue his career. He said, “I met someone who asked me, ‘What’s wrong? You look upset.’ I told him that I’d been praying to leave this line of work. He was a spiritual man, and he asked me why. I told him how I felt, and he responded saying, ‘Who are you to decide? Maybe, staying in this line of work, you send a message to somebody, they may listen. If you leave this line of work and try to spread a message, they won’t listen. Use this profession as a tool.’” He said the credit of his success goes to the fact he works ba-wuzu.
