‘Qurban’ was one of the few dramas that maintained a plateau of both a sound storyline and riveting acting. Starring Iqra Aziz, Bilal Abbas Khan and Shehzad Sheikh, ‘Qurban’ offered an authentic glimpse into classist and societal pressures that most millennials in our society face. The story built on two young souls who longed to be together, but couldn’t – Jamal (Bilal Abbas Khan) loved Heer (Iqra Aziz) with all his heart, yet because he was from a poorer background, Heer’s parents refused to allow them to be together. Jamal was a broken man, especially after he found out that Heer and become engaged to another man (despite being secretly engaged to him) – his fight for her is unwavering until his last breaths. He was nothing short of perfect and spectacular, and honestly gave us women hope that men like him might really exist in the real world…
The time he wanted Heer to be with someone he thought would be worthy of her – SELFLESS LOVE RIGHT THERE.
He never let anyone share his burdens; no matter how terrible life got, he kept plowing through with a startling dignity, humbleness, and grace.
He was shockingly kind. In this day and age, to have such a profoundly warm heart was a rarity.
He never gave up on Heer. Even when everything felt like a blazing abyss, he kept going.
Jamal was incredibly wise, far beyond his age.
His dogged determination was incredibly admirable as he continually preached about honor above all else.
His sensitivity and soft heart were both his greatest weakness and his most self-deprecating strength.
Even at his weakest, he was never afraid to be brutally honest and heart-achingly sad – something most men shy away from doing.
He never let his temper get the best of him, with no matter who did him wrong
Jamal never hesitated to truly declare how he felt, and would never be afraid of crying.
He forgave far too easily.
