And it has finally been confirmed.
In a social media update, Hamza Ali Abbasi put to rest all the speculations and confirmed that he is indeed tying the knot with actress Naimal Khawar in a “small Nikkah on August 25” followed by a valima on August 26.
Talking in detail about his spiritual journey, Hamza said, “When you realise that [life] is not fairytales and it is TRUTH that you have a Rabb & you will stand accountable infront of him after you die, it changes you. Your first priority becomes fixing yourself rather than changing the world.”
He continued, “You beg Allah for help and no matter how many times you fail you promise Allah that you will rather die trying and failing but you will never give up in your pursuit to do what pleases him and avoid what displeases him. Then one day, in one specific aspect of your life, Allah gets satisfied with the sincerity of heart & accepts your extremely flawed efforts for him and then HE TAKES OVER! He rewards you and opens your heart towards things that were unthinkable for you before.”
On marrying Naimal, Hamza said, “Some people get married for themselves because either they fall in love or because their lonely or maybe because of family or to have kids, these are also good reasons, but believe me when your sole reason is to please Allah then Allah makes a man like me, who could never sustain anything emotional with the opposite gender, could never comprehend the idea of marriage in his head, Allah makes that man go upto his very platonic friend of two years Naimal and tell her that he doesn’t want a relationship (that GF/BF nonsense) neither is he claiming to be in love with her but he wants to marry her with the intention of strengthening his very turbulent efforts to walk a path which pleases Allah and to my surprise she agrees not just to marry me but also expresses her joy in walking this path with me & now we can’t even breathe without each other.”
Following Hamza’s declaration of love, people began to speculate about how the couple’s “love story” began. To this Hamza said that there is no “love story”, they were friends for two years before deciding to tie the knot.
