Ah, Black Friday. The only day out of three hundred and sixty five where you can shop like your life depends on it without any judgement. You’ve already binged that turkey, and now it’s time to binge your favorite businesses. Yeah, I said it.
So, on this most joyous of days and for your shopping convenience, we asked YOU which small, Muslim-owned businesses you wanted to see featured for Black Friday, and boy, did you deliver! As always, our #MuslimGirlClique came through for us, and so, here we’ve compiled a list of businesses, owned by Muslims, whom you won’t regret supporting with your hard-earned coin this Black Friday. From prayer beads to skincare, from pre-loved modest wear to books, we’ve got everything you need and want right here. Happy shopping, peeps, because you really don’t want to sleep on these businesses!
