In the video Hamza Ali Abbasi said after the hard work of 10 to 12 years, finally he has realized the true meaning of life and life after death. This industry has given him so much fame and respect he thanks Allah Subhanu Watallah for blessing him with such immense respect and his fans.

He further says that Islam has given him all the answers to his questions like how the world came into being, the purpose of life, life after death, what will stay, NOTHING! He says he thought on all of this and came to conclusion that nothing stays forever in this world, in fact, the awards he won for his hard work would not mean anything to his children or his grandchildren or anyone else after his death so what is the purpose of this when even it will not benefit him in his akhirah.
What will stay, is his deen and his deeds so he decided to quit showbiz and preach and acknowledge Islam. Which will be beneficial for him in his akhirah and help him to become a better Muslim.
