Mumbai: Former Indian actress Sana Khan, quitting Bollywood for following the path of Islam, quotes her husband Mufti Anas as saying that she did not decide to marry Anas overnight but for a man like her. Prayers have been asked for years.
In a recent interview, Sana Khan described her first meeting with her husband Syed Anas and how her husband was instrumental in changing her life. According to Sana Khan, she and her husband first met in 2017 in Mecca.
Sana Khan said that on the day she was returning to India, I had a brief meeting with Anas and Anas was introduced to me as an Islamic scholar. Here I would like to clarify one thing that Anas is not “Mufti” but “Alam”. I contacted them again in late 2018 because I had a few questions about religion. And then, almost a year later, in 2020, we got in touch again because I was always looking for more information about Islam.

Sana Khan while talking about her and Syed Anas’ marriage said that I did not decide to marry Anas overnight. Rather, I have prayed for years for a man like Anas in my life. What I like most about Anas is that he is ‘decent’ and ‘he has modesty’. They do not judge others. They told me that if something good falls into the gutter, you put 10 buckets of water on it, it is not clean, but take it out of the gutter and pour a glass of water, it becomes clean. His words had a profound effect on me.
Speaking about her profession, Sana Khan said, “Many people ask me why I realized so late that I am in wrong profession. So I want to say that you don’t realize many things immediately. Would have You get so much glamor and fame that you either don’t see anything or you can’t make a decision.
I was the only earner in my house and the lockdown helped me understand that I should take this step. What I was doing was not for me. I am thankful for what Bollywood has given me but I realized that I am not for this industry.

Regarding quitting social media after showbiz, Sana Khan said that I will not quit social media at all. People ask me if I would take sannyas (separation from the world) but I want to point out that there is a big difference between taking sannyas and living life according to religion.
On the criticism made by people after marriage, Sana Khan said, “How can my marriage be a problem for others?” I did not marry to hear criticism. My husband is a good man at heart and could rarely do any harm to anyone.
Talking about children, Sana Khan said, “My husband wants us not to do family planning yet but I want our children to be in a hurry.”
During the interview, Maulana Anas Syed while talking about marriage with Sana Khan said that I had prayed to God that I want to marry Sana Khan and God heard my prayer. I don’t think I would have been happier if I had married someone else. Sana is a forgiving and pure hearted girl. I always wanted a girl who would complete me.
Maulana Anas added that people still ask me how I got married to an actress. But these are all small-minded people. This is my life and no one should comment on it. People are free to think that we are not close to each other but only we both know how close we are to each other.
Maulana Anas further said that I have never forced Sana Khan to lead a special life. He announced about wearing hijab on Instagram about 6 months ago. People thought that Sana had taken this decision due to epidemic disease and lack of work. But she always wanted to keep herself separate from her work. In fact, he himself was shocked by Sana Khan’s decision to leave the industry.
It should be noted that Sana Khan got married to Maulana Anas Syed, a businessman from Surat, Gujarat, two months ago.
