Black Muslims are proudly sharing radiating photos of themselves on social media using the #BlackoutEid while celebrating Eid on Monday. While some can be seen with their loved ones, others have posted selfies alone, showing off their beaming smiles and stylish wardrobe.

According to Buzzfeed, Black Muslims have been celebrating Eid with the same hashtag, #BlackoutEid, since 2016. The tradition started when social media users made a statement against Snapchat, the platform which was accused of not sharing photos of Black Muslims on their official Eid story.

When the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the globe, most posted photos from their homes. Many are still showing their beauty from their homes, but others are also celebrating with relatives and venturing outside to celebrate with their community.


The three-day Eid al-Fitr holiday marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. The celebration includes prayer in mosques and open-air areas, Al Jazeera reports.
