As most had already guessed, Hamza shared the news that he has decided to bid farewell to his acting career for good. In a 23-minute-long video, the Waar star shared that he has decided to leave entertainment industry to follow the path of Almighty.
"I had this divine revelation some time back, that all that I am doing in this world will end the moment I die," he shared in the video. "All these trophies, all these accolades will not bring me any good on the day of judgment when I meet my Maker. I have decided that I want to leave everything that might be a hurdle when it comes to making my matters easier on the day of Judgment."
He further added how, contrary to some rumors, he is not joining electoral politics any time soon. "I think in politics, you have to lie a lot to defend your party and your peers. It isn't something I resonate with. I don't wish to lie or do something I don't believe in, so entering politics is not on the cards right now."

Hamza added that what he really wants to do now is talk about religion and hopes to inspire others as well with his journey. My perspective of life has been changed since I realized that I have to meet my God. With this realization, what I decided to do is that I now wish to talk to people. I wish to spread the message."
Hamza added that he will now only be making videos to share his knowledge about religion. He will be talking about this in various interviews. He shared that he will be leaving the entertainment industry indefinitely. He thanked his fans for the undying support and love over the years. He also added that he will be making shows and films, even if he won't act in it.
