Crystal Joseph


Crystal always grew up knowing God.

At a young age (as early as 10 years old) her feelings towards the church changed.

She started to follow her gut instinct that it was all wrong.

Finally she felt that Christianity was a block between her and her creator.

After leaving the church she went through a stage of conforming to society.

This included not knowing an answer to the questions of faith and not seeking one either.

Going through this she felt drained.

Crystal tried Buddhism and meditation while still believing in God.

She stated that in England people tend to mix and match and try to make their own answers to questions about God as you go along.

She needed something.

The turning point for her was at the age of 21, she visited Egypt.

She heard the Quran for the first time and felt like this was real life.

A visit to Mt Sinai was one of her first spiritual experiences of Islam.

At the same time she was learning about the scientific proofs in the Quran.

Crystal was getting black and white answers to all her questions.
