Abdullah Qureshi Bids Farewell!
Abdullah Qureshi, known for his great songs, made an official announcement with a long detailed statement.
“I have received a ton of messages in this time asking about where I have been,” he wrote. “I was on a break, pressed the pause button for a while, and took this time to find out who I was, where I am headed, and whom I want to become.”
Announcing his decision to quit the music industry, Qureshi said, “want to take a moment to announce my exit from the music industry as I have decided to stop doing music as a full-time profession. I took this decision purely because of religious reasons.”
Adding on, he commented, “I had a great time making music, playing at concerts for thousands of people, getting loved and appreciated, facing controversies, making some wrong decisions, spreading some positivity, making some amazing friends, working with people who were my idols, learning from the best and doing what I loved doing.”
Sharing how he now believes that the actual purpose of his life is “way bigger than all of this”, Qureshi remarked, “We have very little time in this world to make our afterlife better.”
I am very satisfied
Abdullah further explained, “Alhamdulillah, I am very satisfied with this decision and I am on my way to finding the real truth and I pray that Allah makes this new journey easy for me.” He even cleared that he will no longer perform in concerts or appear in ads.
“I would appreciate it if I am not contacted for those. However, if I am needed for any appearance events, social media campaigns, or work that interests me and falls in the folds of our religion, I’d be happy to do it.” He concluded his statement with gratitude for endless support and love.
