Philippine Actress Quits Showbiz for Islam

MANILA, Philippines – Actress Queenie Padilla has quit show business for her Muslim religion

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Padilla said she finds inner peace and direction in life in Islam.

“Islam is a way of life. When you start to [become a] Muslim, you know [what] your life purpose really is. I am such a sinful person, but Allah invited me to his house. I am so close to him” she said.

Padilla recently performed the Hajj, a pilgrimage to Makkah in Saudi Arabia. She said she has become a totally different person because of Islam.

“When I was in showbiz, I was very unhappy. I was lost and I always felt I never belong. But now that Allah is in my life, Alhamdullilah, La illa illalah, I am so happy and content in my life” she said.

As she enjoys her new life, Padilla said she will not go back to show business because it is forbidden in Islam. More, she thanked her father Robin for introducing her to Islam.

I just want to thank my father for giving me the opportunity to perform Hajj. And I love him so much because without my father, I might not have been a Muslim,” she said
