Bella Hadid And Justin Trudeau Lead The Stars Sharing Eid Well Wishes
The supermodel and the Canadian Prime Minister were among the first to acknowledge the start of Shawwal on social media…
She’s previously revealed she’s “proud to be a Muslim”, and this weekend Bella Hadid made sure to acknowledge her roots with a touching Eid Al Fitr message.
The supermodel shared a throwback image from a family dinner at her grandmother’s house as she wished her 13.7 million followers Eid Mubarak.
“May God bless and bring peace to you all my friends and family,” the 20-year-old posted on Instagram.
Hadid, who is half Palestinian and half Dutch, has previously revealed how her father shared his Muslim upbringing with her and her siblings, Anwar and Gigi.
“He was always religious, and he always prayed with us,” the face of Dior Beauty told Porter magazine earlier this year.
The model wasn’t the only famous face to mark the end of Ramadan on social media either – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to his accounts to wish Muslims a blessed Eid.
“My best wishes to Muslims celebrating Eid al-Fitr tonight,” the politician posted on Twitter, along with a statement which paid tribute to Canada’s “cultural diversity”.
“Canada’s cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths and sources of pride. This year, as we mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation, we recognise the invaluable contributions the Muslim community makes to our national fabric,” the leader of the Liberal Party said.
The popular PM also shared a short clip, in which he was shown helping to pack supplies at a Ramadan food bank.

The word “Islam” is derived from the word meaning “peace” in Arabic. Islam is a religion revealed to mankind with the intention of presenting a peaceful life where the infinite compassion and mercy of God manifests on earth. God calls all people to live by the moral values He sets so that compassion, mercy, peace and love can be experienced all over the world. “O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Holy Quran: 2, 208) #EidMubarak
