Popular TV star Sana Khan, who was also seen in Bigg Boss 6, shocked everyone, when the actress announced in October that she is quitting the showbiz as she said “serve humanity and follow the order of my Creator.” In the very next month, she announced her marriage with religious scholar Maulana Anas Saiyad, which turned out to be an another surprise for the fans. Though in a recent interview, Sana revealed that marrying Anas was not an overnight decision and she has prayed for years for a man like him.
Talking to E Times, the Wajah Tum Ho actress spoke about her first interaction with Anas and said, "We first met in 2017 in Mecca. It was a brief meeting on the day I was returning to India. Anas was introduced to me as an Islamic scholar. I would like to clarify that he is an Alim, and not a Mufti. I contacted him towards the end of 2018, as I had some questions about religion. Then, after more than a year, we reconnected in 2020. I was always inclined towards learning more about Islam."

She added, "Getting married to Anas wasn’t an overnight decision. I have prayed for years for a man like him in my life. What I liked best about him is that he is shareef and unn mein haya hai. He is not judgmental. He had said this to me, ‘Agar koi achhi cheez gutter mein gir gayi hai toh uske upar aap 10 baalti bhi paani daal do, woh saaf nahi hoti hai. Par aap usko gutter se baahar nikaal kar ek glass paani daal do, woh saaf ho jaati hai’. That had a lasting impact on me."
The actress also spoke about facing trolls after the marriage and asserted, "People trolled me and wrote nasty comments on my Insta handle. That’s so distasteful. They did that because I decided to quit the industry and lead my life in a certain way. Well, how does my marriage concern anyone? I did not get married for these trolls. My husband is a good man and I find him good-looking, maybe you don’t. I don’t care."
