19 Insanely Beautiful Eid Outfits
Eid Mubarak, Y'all. <3
With Ramadan coming to a close, we asked fashionable Muslims from around the world to send us some fire Eid outfits. We also talked to them about style, and all of their Ramadan feels. Here's what they told us:

The best part of Ramadan is the big feasts every night cause I love food! Me and my friends have a tradition during the holiday where we take turns inviting each other over for dinner and the host of the dinner has to come up with games. Those are always the most memorable nights."

Eid is usually hosted at my parents' house every year - my Mama is a party planning champ and every year we have five to six new additions to the party, whether they be new babies or new friends/partners! Our home is always open to everyone who loves to celebrate life!"
Ramadan is a month in the year to take some time out to focus on yourself, your family, your friends and community. Because I'm born of Britain and with Arab heritage, I've always been interested in clothing that mixes eastern and western styles — so I've love these traditional long shirts with modern button down collars."

Ramadan is all about family. We work on our spirituality as a family and we (mostly!) have Suhoor and Iftar together. The only downside to this is that we can get a bit hangry during the day but we're back to normal once our fast breaks 😂. My favorite thing about the month is that it truly humbles you. It teaches me to be grateful and reminds me of how beautiful my religion is."

"Ramadan is a perfect opportunity for us all to develop and grow spiritually, psychologically, and socially.
I feel our character and conduct is so important in achieving the true essence of Islam. How we treat each other, the values we hold onto, and the message we spread to our children and those around us are all displayed through our daily interactions."

Fashionwise, for Eid, I tend to gravitate more towards traditional Pakistani clothing that is simple, but still has an elegant twist. (Because who wants to be uncomfortable at 8AM for eid prayer?!) I actually picked out this black and gold ensemble myself in a boutique in Pakistan when I visited. The outfit stood out to me because it isn't overdone, but the golden and silver accents add an an element of luxe against the solid black lace."

"Ramadan is a month where I can gain the discipline to excel through life.
Taking time to understand the world around me means I can better myself as a human. It is a month of sharing: sharing prayers, food, humanity and compassion. It’s a time where I can look into my self and cleanse my mind, soul and body."

Ramadan to me is a month to practice selflessness and gratitude, as not everyone will have the blessed opportunity to see through Ramadan. To fast during this month and to reap its benefits helps the believer nourish his faith and recharge his heart. It is a time where the believer rededicates their life to their Maker and focuses on nothing else but spiritual betterment. May the lights of this month and the love entwined in it remain with us even after this month is over."

"For me, Ramadan isn't just fasting from sunrise until sunset. It's my time off from the world; a time to let go of all the toxic things in my life and to renew myself. I try to gain good habits every Ramadan, and it seems to be so much easier to do so during this month. This year I wanted to focus on a few things; Patience, Bir il Walidayn (respect towards parents), and my relationship with my family.
Every night I break my fast with my family, and it's such a beautiful feeling to have all of us gathered for nights filled with happiness and laughter."

"Ramadan for me is like rehab for the soul. It’s a time of reflection. We get caught up in our lives sometimes, and we forget our true purpose. So
it reminds you to be grateful of all the blessings Allah has given to you, while it's also it's a month of self-awareness and it teaches you discipline. Apart from that it's a great month. It brings friends and families closer, everyone is in good spirits. And let's not forget about Eid, a day full of laughs, amazing food — especially the Biryaani — and fresh outfits!"

Ramadan is not just about food and water dicipline... it's about giving your entire character a detox, maintaining humility through your eyes, ears, and verbally too. This blessed month will prepare us for the rest of the year with the hope that we better ourselves in accordance to our faith. Moan less and appreciate more, gratefulness is what I personally learn the most. <3"

Ramadan is a month of forgiveness, a month of mercy, a month of giving, an entire month of abstaining from basic human needs for the sake of God and only for God. It's an exciting month! My heart is always content and at ease during [this time]."

"Ramadan is one of the best times in the year for me and has always been since I was younger.
Growing up, it was all about Eid, the party and the celebration. I was basically looking forward to Eid from the first day of Ramadan. But now that I'm older, it's totally different. It's a time to be with family, reflect on the year, [a time for] sharing, and more like a period of spiritual development. The atmosphere is different and there is a sense of belonging, unity, love, and peace."

Ramadan is the month of blessings and peace. It is a chance for us Muslims to clean our soul and start all over again, to forgive people, spend more on charities, learn more about our religion, and spend more time with family and friends. This is the most precious and important month which we all strive to meet again every year."

"Ramadan is a time for self reflection, a time to seek forgiveness and to forgive others.
Ramadan is the time to find inner peace within yourself and to connect with God. One thing I truly cherish and miss the most when Ramadan is gone is breaking your fast together with family and friends. Ramadan has a spirit of togetherness like no other time!"

"For me, the most amazing thing about Ramadan is that it's the month where God opens the gates of heaven wide open and showers his blessings on us.
My daughter unexpectedly arriving early during the last 10 days of Ramadan is the biggest blessing that I could ever ask for! Best. Ramadan. Ever!"

"Three things come to mind when I think about Ramadan: reflection, growth, and hunger. I reflect on my character, my state of mind, and my beliefs. I make a list of all the aspects of me that need improvement, whether that be my stubbornness or my insecurity. I then make it my intention to work on those things after Ramadan, for example, to be more open-minded and self-loving.
So while fasting may be a huge part of it, it's not really hunger for food that makes Ramadan so special to me, it's hunger to be a better me!"

"It's easy to get caught up in the materialistic norms of the Instagram world.
Ramadan is a time where I strengthen my relationship with God and reconnect with myself. It's a month-long spiritual cleanse, which helps keeps me grounded for the rest of the year and reminds me of my true purpose in this life."

Ramadan to me is a reset of the soul. A reminder of who we are and where we come from. A time to better one's self in all aspects of life, levelling up for the year ahead. My passion is modest menswear and so for Eid I'm wearing a custom Thobe in Navy blue with a sample docker hat made by myself and Y-3 X Zip Lows on feet."
