The Top Latina Muslim Instagramers To Follow Especially If You’re Observing Ramadan This Month

Updated May 5, 2020

Society makes a lot of assumptions about Latinas. Many assume that we’re loud, we’re “fiery,” temperamental and Catholic. Too often our strength, brilliance, compassion, and range go underestimated and under-appreciated. We are women of so many colors, shades, belief systems, backgrounds, and talents, not even ROYGBIV could hold a candle to the beauty that comes with our diversity. This month, we’re tipping our hats off to Latinas observing Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.

As Muslims worldwide take part in a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community we’re looking at top Latina Muslim Instagram accounts that actively debunk any stereotypes you or others might have around Latinas and Muslims by embracing their cultura and faith.
