Former actress Sana Khan talks about her decision to wear hijab after 'days of depression', says 'I used to see myself in a grave in my dreams'


In October 2020, Sana Khan announced her decision to quit acting and chose the path of religion and spirituality. Known for acting in films like Yehi Hai High SocietyJai Ho, Tom, Dick and Harry 2 and Wajah Tum Ho, she bid adieu to showbiz to serve humanitarian purposes. Now, in a video on Instagram, Sana spoke about her decision to quit films and wear a hijab for the rest of her life. 

"In my past life, of course, I had everything, name, fame, money. I could do anything and everything that I wanted but one thing that was missing was – peace in my heart. I was like I have everything but why am I not happy? It was very tough and there were days of depression, there were days of Allah's message that I could see through his signs," Sana told.

The former actress further shared, "In 2019 I still remember, during Ramadan, I used to see a grave in my dreams. I would see a burning, blazing grave and I could see myself in the grave. I didn't see the empty grave, I saw myself. I felt this is the sign that God is giving me that if I don’t change, this is what my end is. That got me a little anxiety. I still remember the changes that were happening. I would listen to all the motivational Islamic speeches and one night I remember reading something so beautiful."

She got emotional and fought back tears while saying, "The message said that you don’t want your last day to be your first day of wearing hijab. That is something that touched me so deep."

After quitting the industry, Sana got married to Mufti Anas in November 2020.
