Happy Eid! (Again.)
It turns-out that Palestinian-Dutch-American model Gigi Hadid is as happy to celebrate Eid as any other Muslim. As is her boyfriend, former One Direction member Zayn Malik.
The super couple celebrated the Eid weekend together with their mothers.
“Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating,” Yolanda Foster, Gigi’s mum, captioned an Instagram photo.
Though Gigi and Bella Hadid do not publicly discuss their faith, Bella, the older sister, has explained that her father, a Palestinian refugee from Nazareth named Mohamed Hadid, was religious, and did try to impart his faith and background onto his daughters.
"He was always religious, and he always prayed with us," Bella said in an interview Porter Magazine. "I am proud to be a Muslim. My dad was a refugee when he first came to America, so it's actually very close to home for my sister and brother and me."
Eid al-Adha celebrates the story of the Prophet Ibrahim, who almost sacrifices his son to God before God, pleased he has shown his faith, replaces the boy with a goat.
