Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik celebrated Eid al-Adha with their moms
Both families are Muslims
It was only last week that Gigi Hadid’s mum Yolanda Foster posted a photo of her eldest daughter and boyfriend Zayn Malik snuggling up at home, describing him as “family.”
In fact, over the last two years or so, the young couple have been spending a lot of their time in the Hadid and Malik homes. Gigi even revealed that Zayn’s mom’s house is her “favourite restaurant in the world.”
Gigi’s mom posted the snap of herself with Zayn, his mom Trisha, and Gigi, celebrating the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.
Eid al-Adha is one of the holy days of Islam that celebrates Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac, and the end of the pilgrimage that many Muslims make to Mecca. The day is celebrated with prayer, food, and gifts, with family and friends.
Zayn’s dad is British-Pakistani, and his mother converted to Islam when she met him.
Trisha told the BBC, “I’ve always tried to learn as much as I can about my husband’s religion and culture. I made sure the children went to the mosque. Zayn has read the Koran three times.”
Similarly, it is Gigi’s father that introduced Islam to the family. Whilst Yolanda is a Dutch-born American, Mohamed Hadid is Palestinian-American. Though he doesn’t consider himself a “devout Muslim,” he said in an interview in 2010 that he is “very proud of his heritage.”
Gigi’s sister Bella has also explained that she is “proud to be a Muslim.”
Yolanda captioned her post, “Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating…”
And unless he’s wearing a bald cap, it looks like the ex-One Direction singer has shaved all of his hair off.
