Crystal Muslim Organization presents The 15th Annual Essay Competition 2021 themed “The Society and Parents as Key Character Influencers of the Youth”. 


The aim of the Annual Essay Competition is to encourage Muslim Youths to learn more about Islam. We work to encourage youths to get familiar with Islamic publications and imbibe the culture of research and reading.

We also encourage the participation of non-Muslims to help them understand the Islamic way of life as we believe that through proper knowledge and understanding of our religions, we can create a peaceful coexistence between us.

The Essay Competition has been taking place every year since 2006. Alhamdulillah, year 2021 will make it 14 years of CMO Annual Youth Essay Competition.
