Kristiane Backer Embraced islam

“I was lost but now I’m found”

About Kristiane Backer

 born in Hamburg, became MTV Europe’s first German presenter.

 She was awarded Germany’s most prestigious TV award, the »Golden Camera«, for her television work.

Today, Kristiane Backer hosts conferences and gala events throughout Europe, devoting herself to promoting dialogue between different faiths.

She lives in London.

In the early 1990s Kristiane Backer was one of the very first presenters on MTV (Europe).

For some years she lived and breathed the international music scene quickly gaining a cult following amongst viewers and becoming a darling of the European press.

 As she reached the pinnacle of her success she realized that, despite having all she could have wished for, she was never truly satisfied. Something very important was missing.

Through a fateful meeting with the famous cricketer Imran Khan she travelled to Pakistan where she encountered a completely different world to the one she knew, the religion and culture of Islam.

In place of the stars of the pop scene she was meeting men and women whose lives were dominated by the love of God, men and women who cared very little for the brief glories of this world.

She began to read the Koran and to study books about the Faith.
A few years later (in 1995),

 after travelling more widely in the Islamic world and knowing that she had discovered her spiritual path, she embraced Islam in a London mosque.

In this private memoir Kristiane Backer tells the story of her conversion and explains how faith at last gave her inner peace and the meaning she had sought.
