About Yusha Evans
Yusha Evans was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina in a very conservative Christian home. In his early teens he became heavily involved in the church near his home and a youth oriented organisation with the intention of becoming involved in the ministry of teaching and preaching. In the summer of 1996 his life changed, upon studying the bible from cover to cover and realizing many things were askew, and a lot of what he believed his entire life was not in line with what his research found, he left Christianity and went in search of the truth.
After many twist and turns, he encountered a Muslim, and was given a Qur’an. After reading the Qur’an cover to cover he accepted Islam in the winter of 1998. Yusha (Joshua) Evans currently works as a full-time lecturer and caller to Islam, as well as teaching workshops that have taken him all across the globe. He has studied under numerous teachers and scholars in the various sciences of Islam and is a Psychology major.
