Eid-ul-Adha is a day rich with blessings, spiritual growth, and fellowship.

So, one of the many things this blessed day brings is a chance for some fun and fashion.

**AAMVE (African American Muslim Vernacular English) Lesson – I use the word “khimar” and not “hijab.” That’s what I was taught, and I am sticking to it.
