A few years ago, producer and screenwriter Aamina Mohamed created the #BlackOutEid hashtag after noticing that much of the Eid content shared online rarely featured Black Muslims. Each year since then, the hashtag has gone viral as Black Muslims celebrate their faith — and their style — and Black Muslims from over the world participate.
Mohamed said she created it because she “felt it was something that we were aching for. An international connection and celebration. But even if it was just 10 people from around the world sharing pictures, I’d be satisfied.”
Being that it’s viral and worldwide, it goes without saying that if you check out the hashtag, you’ll find way more than 10 photos.
We picked 10 of our favorite looks for this roundup, but we highly encourage you to browse the hashtag and check out all the beauty and creativity happening around the world, as showcased by Black Muslims.

Sometimes the best accessory is a smile! (And it’s sunnah!)
Cute, casual, and simple.
There’s so much to love here. The pop of color, how the nails match the earrings, the henna, the bracelet, and oh, the pearls!
Eid Mubarak, fam!
