So it’s official. Hamza Ali Abbasi and Naimal Khawer are getting married this weekend.
Hamza himself confirmed the news in a lengthy Facebook post. Now we’re wondering what was that all about.
The Jawani Phir Nahi Ani made it official in a very roundabout way. Rather than narrate an ode to his partner, some people are saying that Hamza has chosen to make it more about his relationship with God.
That’s okay, (because we like what we like). But some netizens can’t help but think that Hamza chose to mock other people who marry for love. Many regular folks didn’t like this aspect of his Facebook post.
Here’s what he 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.”
Of course, netizens had a lot to say. Facebook mostly had mixed responses, all in good humor.
There were voices of dismay as well. The ire was not about the wedding, rather the ‘God awful post‘.
Some people were wondering why the long explanation?
Congratulations Hamza. However, you don't owe us explanation. You are getting married, good on you. We are happy that you're happy.

Unfortunately, this also brought trolls out of the woodwork.
بلاول بھٹو کی طرف سے حمزہ عباسی کو نکاح کی مبارکباد اور شادی پر اپنے کھسرا گروپ کیساتھ پرفارم کرنیکی آفر
حمزہ نےشکریہ کیساتھ آفر رد کر دی کہ وہ Already پی ٹی آئی کے فرحان ورک @FarhanKVirk گروپ کو پرفارمنس کیلئے بُک کر چکےہیں
سب اپنی رائےدیں کہ کون اچھا ڈانس کرے گا بلاول یا ورک pic.twitter.com/rP8Mmf65Tq

Count on Twitterati to call out ‘I did it for God‘
Itna Allah se pyar hai tu why didn’t you propose to a widow, divorced or an orphaned woman?!

The one platonic friend you randomly think of proposing to also turns out to be the hottest girl you know. Allah works in mysterious ways.

Then came the loony conspiracy theories.
His post SCREAMS that hes GAY. tried to be straight many times and failed and gave in to desires that made god angry and he could never imagine a relationship with the opposite sex and has told his wife upfront that he doesnt love her only wants to marry to settle his conscience

Is she OK with immy and you being… You know 😜

Why don't you flee to the West, where you can marry the guy of your life? You're going to make this beautiful girl unhappy. Remember, Allah is forgiving, I hear. Marrying to please a third party usually ends up with no party being pleased. Shame, shame!

Then explain this ex-flame.
Inshallah you will be ruined as you ruined my life Hamza. You will answerable to Almighty Allah TALLAH. You will cry every day and night never get peace because you have hurt me again and again Naimal

How did we forget Jeena in all this!? Well for those who are unaware, Ayesha Khan’s character in Man Mayaal is an internet meme as well. She certainly deserves a mention in this saga:
Ab jeena ka kiya ho ga .. us kai tau maa baap bhi nahin hain..

Meanwhile, Hamza Ali Abbasi fans are handling any disagreement with ‘you’re just jealous‘. This sounds like high school all over again.
Kabhi kisi ki khushi ma khush bhi ho Jana chaiye, Har waqt sarty raha Karo.
