This past weekend, the world celebrated Eid in quarantine – but that didn’t stop Black Muslims from taking over social media for #BlackoutEid. The hashtag was created by Aamina Mohammed, a screenwriter and producer based in Minnesota, as a response to lack of representation of Black Muslims in Eid style coverage. Now in its eighth year, #BlackoutEid packed more heat than ever this year. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites, category by category!
Better late than never, Eid Mubarak
Quite an unusual Ramadan but super grateful to be here. In strong effort to be in my Eid mood, here’s me wishing you a life as colourful, breakthroughs from all that you seek and happiness that’s unparalleled ???????? #BlackoutEid pic.twitter.com/BhK96gjyll

The category is… a pop of color! This yellow paired with her massive smile just makes me happy, what else can I say? This image could be a movie poster or book cover tbh.
Absolutely loving the blue, loving the attitude, and the power pose. This WAS the energy I was trying to channel in 2020, until uh… you know. #coronaviiiiiiirus
I’m a sucker for the color magenta and some bomb henna. This girl gets my vote. Anyone have any good recommendations for at-home dye brands? I’m feeling pink all of a sudden…
This is a classic fit for the fellas. Not to mention, this is just a beautiful photograph all around. Do you think they make these chappals in a women’s US 9? Asking for a friend.

I’m obsessed with this girl’s care-free, casual look. Is it just me, or does the stacked gold necklace look never get old? Neither does a lovely smile.

THE CATEGORY IS… PRINTS! This green look just makes me HAPPY. It makes my heart sing. She looks gorgeous.

I’m SPEECHLESS… the beauty has left me without words. AND she made the dress herself? We love a designer AND a model. *heart eyes emoji*
Not only is he rocking multiple prints on his physical person, but is also posted up in a printed room. It’s all about the attention to detail here. 10/10

What’s wrong with chu

Honorable mention to this beautiful girl here in the all pink ensemble. I dub this shade the official “power pink” of 2021. She keeps it graceful and soft while rocking a bold statement color.

This gorgeous couple is all of the #goals, congratulations to these styling newlyweds on their first Eid and many more, inshaAllah.
This is maybe one of the most powerful videos a camera has ever recorded. Please behold this look and more importantly the walk!

…and for our final look of the evening, which is so dreamy it needs no further introduction.
