Saqib also shared that it was tough struggling in Mumbai, but he is proud that he could earn such a fan following in a year. However, he feels it’s all for the worldly benefits as he has not gained anything for life post death. He wrote “In nutshell i was going Astray( gumrah) and was going against my tenants of Islam. I used to offer Namaz but something was lacking and that was Sukoon & my accountability towards Allah. So now I totally surrendering before Allah SWT. Wo Sukoon jiski mujhe talaash thi wo toh mere samnay tha, meri kitaab Mai (our holy Book i.e, Quran).”
