If I might say, one of the things I’m most disappointed about in the Muslim Influencer scene is the relatively small amount of accounts that have stunning curated feeds.
We really need to step up our game.
But all hope is not lost! The 7 accounts I’ve selected below (and there are more!), exhibit a type of style, eye for what looks visually appealing and colour palettes, that make us, at M.I.N, super proud.
Instagram, after all, is a visual platform, and pages that are aesthetically pleasing always do better.
Not only that, but your better your page looks, the more likely you are to open yourself up to brand deals.
Meet Eileen, an Estonian Muslim who was voted @Grazia Qatar’s Influencer of the year 2018. With one of the most stunning feeds you’ll see, @Eslimah shows her beautiful travel photos from across the world, encourages us to be with nature and inspires her women about faith.

I must say, congratulations to Qes for being the only male on this line up.
