About a year ago, the Dangal superstar Zaira Wasim announced her departure from Bollywood as she struggled to make peace with her religion.
Prior to the release of her movie The Sky Is Pink, Zaira Wasim took to her Instagram and wrote,
“As I stepped my foot in Bollywood, it opened doors of massive popularity for me… but what it also did was to lead me to a path of ignorance, as I silently and unconsciously transitioned out of imaan… While I continued to work in an environment that consistently interferes with my iman, my relationship with my religion was threatened.”
Zaira’s decision to quit Bollywood also invited a lot of criticism from fans and other Bollywood celebrities, however she stood firm on her decision.
She actively posts inspirational quotes and Quranic verses on her social media and motivates others to follow their heart as well.
Recently, she posted a religious video on her Instagram, where Pakistani Islamic scholar Dr. Israr Ahmed discusses the fundamental teachings of Islam. He further goes on to explain the importance of ‘taqwa’ (piety) and ‘rizq’ (sustenance) and that God will provide for those who have a strong faith.
“Tawakul is entrusting all the matters to Allah & relying sincerely upon His plan. It is to believe that He is the Best Sustainer & disposer of all affairs.”

65. “And for those are careful of their duty to Allah (the ones who have Taqwa), Allah (ever) prepares a way out. And Allah provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if any one puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish his purpose: verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion” 65:2-3. Taqwa is to abstain from what Allah has ordered to be forbidden and to refrain from disobeying him & fearing His punishment. It is to act in obedience to Allah’s commands in the light of His Guidance & in hope of His reward & mercy. Tawakul is entrusting all the matters to Allah & relying sincerely upon His plan. It is to believe that He is the Best Sustainer & disposer of all affairs. “And put your trust in Allah if you are believers indeed” (Quran, 5: 23)”
