Video clip: Student Minister Ava Muhammad, National Spokesperson for The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, delivered the message “The Law of God: Don’t Take Their Vaccines” on Sunday Aug 9, 2020 at The Nation of Islam’s headquarters Mosque Maryam, Chicago, IL.
Nation of Islam member @Latasha Muhammad shows you how to make the famous Muslim Navy Bean Soup!
In Book One of “How To Eat To Live”, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, who was taught by Master Fard Muhammad, writes, “No beans did He advise, except the small navy the small size and not the larger size – the little brown pink ones, and the white ones. This bean He valued to be very high in protein, fats and starches, and it is a safe food for prolonging life. As you will find, most of the Muslims like their bean soup. These beans are dry beans. He said that He could take one of our babies and start him off eating the dry small navy bean soup, and make that child live 240 years. He described no other bean. This dry bean, or pulse, is of ancient origin. It was this bean, according to certain historians, that Daniel preferred for himself and his followers in the prison of Nebuchadnezzar. Do not add rice and meats to these beans, because they contain proteins, fats and starches.”

Amid recent attacks thrown at the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and lies spewed by mainstream media, women of the Nation of Islam took to Twitter once again to defend the name of Farrakhan.
Topics included comments made by Alyssa Milano, Debra Messing and a statement made by the Women’s March, all regarding the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
Alyssa Milano, an actress and activist, is refusing to speak at upcoming Women’s March events unless Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour, both activists and organizers of the Women’s March, denounce Minister Farrakhan for what they consider to be anti-Semitic remarks.
I denounce Farrakhan.
— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 27, 2018
In the past, Mallory has had to defend her decision to work with the Minister and to attend events such as Saviours’ Day earlier this year and Justice Or Else! in 2015. Milano was among those who called Mallory out for “turning a blind eye to the hate spoken about a group of people.” Others called for her resignation, according to Atlanta Black Star.
“Will and Grace” star Debra Messing called out the Women’s March for not denouncing Minister Farrakhan. On top of that, she supported Milano’s decision to distance herself from the march.
What do Nation of Islam women have to say about that?
“Tonight we stand to defend the Honorable Minister @LouisFarrakhan against blatant lies that have circulated. Tonight those lies will be dismantled,” was the initial tweet by Ebony Muhammad, moderator of the chat.
Participants were asked to explain why claims of Minister Farrakhan being an anti-Semite, a bigot, a hater of the LGBTQ community and a man who’s against women, are untrue.
The sisters began firing off immediately.
A1: The issue with The Minister is he CAN'T be run off. He will not bow, because the power that backs him is greater than ANY power that attempts to come against him this is why they must lie they find weak ones who need their favor or those who rely on the wicked for sustenance.

A1: If the Minister was preaching anti-Semitism, his followers would have responded with hatred. He has been labeled an anti-Semite for over 30 years, but no harm has ever come to any Jewish person by a member of the NOI. #CoveredGirl #Farrakhan https://t.co/fBHH1fR27A
— Fudia Muhammad (@GiveBirthToAGod) November 14, 2018
Many women said Minister Farrakhan can’t be classified as a bigot because of all of the friendships he has with people from various backgrounds. Not only that, but he lives by the principle of seeking knowledge.
A2 A bigot would never take time to squash beef between (non-Muslim) rappers, empathize with his people in the LGBT community or invite members of the @womensmarch and others w different views/faith to be apart of 10/10/15 Justice or Else etc. @LouisFarrakhan is no such thing. ??♀️
— Kenya Muhammad (@PeliKEN_Fly) November 14, 2018
The Minister has been nothing but an example of the Joseph that you read about in the Bible that had a coat of many colors. His world friendship tour found him meeting White Russian Muslims and people of many backgrounds and faith traditions. Bigots dont do that. #CoveredGirl
— Rahima Muhammad (@SisterRah) November 14, 2018
A popular lie going around about Minister Farrakhan is that he hates the LGBTQ community. The women participating in the chat debunked the claim.
I remember the minister saying that some of the brightest among us come from our LGBTQ+ Family (he calls them family). And that we can’t go anywhere without them. So…. I don’t know where they get this lie from. #CoveredGirl #Farrakhan
— Queen Nzinga (@QueenNzinga13) November 14, 2018
Q3: The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan's guidance for the LGBTQ community comes from scripture. That is where men of God speak from. And he has stated & demonstrated REPEATEDLY that he loves all people regardless of how our lives line up w/ scripture. #CoveredGirl #Farrakhan
— Renae A. Muhammad (@RenaeAMuhammad) November 14, 2018
The women also rejected the idea that denouncing Minister Farrakhan would take away from his work, and they directly challenged Alyssa Milano and Debra Messing on their motives and their seemingly hypocritical stance.
Ebony S. Muhammad (EM): It is very apparent social media has a serious stronghold when it comes to promoting a message, creating a movement, and generating business especially for entrepreneurs. However, one very interesting element of social media is the power and attractive pull of imagery.
You are actually tapping into all of the above elements through beautiful photos of yourself modeling modest attire on Instagram, which is an image-driven platform.
Before we get into that, please share a little bit about yourself, your upbringing and how you became passionate about fashion and modeling?
Neelam Hakeem (NH): My name is Neelam Hakeem. I chose the name Neelam for myself at the age of 12 when my father came home one day and said that he’s converting from Christianity to Islam. He legally changed our last names from our slave name and gave me a choice to change my first name if I choose to convert as well. This showed me the power of choice, and that whatever change you make in a moment can define you for the rest of your life.
I picked one name from a list of holy/Muslim names based off how it looked to me and most of all its meaning (achiever, blue gem). That’s one name, one word. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then if I choose to present myself a certain way, I feel that I’m choosing to wear all of the beautiful names at once.
As far as my passion for fashion, I’ve always worked in retail and, like the typical girl, I like to dress nice for a good price. I always say you can’t buy style, so if you can make a great fit for cheap you got it. I’ve never considered myself a model, and honestly still don’t. In my opinion with the way social media is set up, everyone is kind of a model, at least on a good day.
EM: On April 1, 2017 you launched the rebranding your Instagram page to reflect the fashion side of yourself. What sparked the shift?
NH: I’ve always struggled with covering my hair and modest dress due to my love for cute hairstyles and clothes I used to feel was a must. I thought that covering modestly took away from the “fashionable” looks I use to go for. My opinion drastically changed on #MuslimWomensDay. On that day I looked through the hash tag becoming completely spellbound by the beautiful Muslim women and girls who slayed, modestly. It was at that moment that I decided to commit to modest fashion. I also wanted to possibly be an example, like the women who inspired me, so I decided by Allah’s Grace to try to push and promote my modesty decision. I’ve received so much love by Allah’s Grace from Muslim and non-Muslim women around the world, and it inspired me to keep striving to continue. I now know modesty is real beauty!
EM: In my humble opinion, you have collided with a major domino effect of other Muslim women on social media promoting a genre of beauty that is being celebrated on major magazine covers. Halima Aden who was recently featured on Vogue and Allure Magazine as “The face of things to come”. Also Ibtihaj Muhammad, the Olympic fencer, who has been featured on various magazines and newspaper covers. Even Rihanna, who doesn’t profess to practice Islam but has been featured on the cover of Harper’s Bazzar wearing Muslim attire in one of her most beautiful photo shoots to date.
What does this surge in modest fashion, Muslim models and covering beautifully with style say about the direction of the standard of beauty that was once considered to reflect the complete opposite?
NH: I feel that modest fashion has always been beautiful and an unstoppable force. I believe those at the top know that there is a huge growing market for this and ultimately want to control it so that they can profit off of it. The positive part is that this beautiful style is being presented more for women and girls to feel beautiful about them self through the representation.
On the flip side, those who ultimately control the market care only about money and will not hesitate to have us in modest fashion in spring and then convince us that we are liberated by taking it off in the summer time if its profitable. To me it’s more important that you stay true to yourself regardless of what the market is pushing.
EM: Being a citizen in the Nation Of Islam and a student in the MGT-GCC (Muslim Girls Training & General Civilization Class), how has social media enabled you to connect with other Muslim women interested in modest fashion from all over the world? How have aspects of being a MGT opened ways to promote sisterhood? For example the collaboration you are doing with Ruma B.
NH: On #MuslimWomensDay I followed many Muslim women and girls who are and have been modest giants in the social media world. I was shocked by the love and support I received after I made the change on my page. Its beautiful, because it’s all becoming a growing family that constantly inspires you. That’s the crazy thing about social media. Most of these girls I’ve never met in my life (with exception of a few), but you feel like you know each other.
Being an MGT has taught me sisterhood with women outside of your blood. So when I talk with other Muslims and women of color, I talk to them as sisters. Thus @Rumastyles who lives Detroit and is Bengali running for Jet Set magazine, I support her and all Muslim women to the fullest. Being in the Nation teaches you about supporting each other. So my support for them and their brands allows them to realize there is no threat just love! Most of them have beautiful spirits to match their outside beauty.
EM: The rise in Muslim women showcasing beauty and style is definitely getting the attention of the world, especially because it contradicts what the controlled media has projected of us. What do you see coming out of this shift? How do you see yourself contributing to what appears to be much bigger than an individual person but a world wide sisterhood and movement against the outright lies and the false beliefs that Islam oppresses its women and girls?
NH: I believe the skies the limit. We are dynamic and intelligent, and contrary to what most people think, Islam liberates the God given talents of a woman. I believe we will see a Muslim woman become the “Beyonce” of singing, the “Denzel Washington” of acting, an “Einstein”, a “Barak Obama”, etc.
I’m just enjoying myself keeping my mind and spirit open to endless possibilities.
❗️Still SHOWERING THE QUEENS OF KING’S ROW❗️The queens are still on high after Saturday’s Community Baby Shower hosted by the MGT&GCC of The Nation of Islam and the 10,000 Fearless Movement.
The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive!!! The MGT had several extra items left over so while going door-to-door today at King’s Row Apartments, we gifted more mothers and others who had relatives in need!!
Even Ms. Nesly (above picture), who is the apartment manager, got some items for her newborn nephew. She has expressed so much appreciation for the Nation of Islam’s impact on the area. All Praise is Due to Allah! The work continues. #queen #Houston #NationofIslam #Farrakhan
For the first couple of days in Torino, Italy we had the freedom to tour the city, shop and experience all the Italian cuisine our hearts desired. I, being the foodie that I am, was looking forward the fresh pastas, authentic Italian pizzas, chocolates, cafes and desserts! It was myself, Sisters Hassanah, Harmoni, Nzinga, Scherri and Summayah. We wasted no time taking advantage of being so close to everything. I don’t think any of us realized how much walking we had to do, so the first stop was H&M to get some flats.
Along the way, we took photos and I recorded video footage of the group as we journeyed through the city’s cobble stone streets, which by the way didn’t have any traffic lights or signs. Therefore, we had to be careful walking since the drivers were not as observant as one would hope.
That night we took more photos of the city and the unique architecture that surrounded us.
Every luxury brand one could imagine was minutes away along with local boutiques. One particular thing I noticed throughout Torino, as far as fashion, was how modest their selections were. It wasn’t just a few stores here and there that carried modest attire. Just about every store we entered had a modest theme.
The first night in Torino we dove right in to experience the authentic Italian pizza! I had the veggie pizza, and yes I ate the whole thing (laughs)!
There is definitely a difference in how fresh all of the ingredients were, how much toppings were given and the overall taste! It was filling but not overwhelming in portion, which is totally the opposite in America. After dinner we went out for gelato, my second one that day ;-).
On the second night, we went to a more formal restaurant and made reservations for everyone in our party. We started off in their downstairs dining area, but we were asked if we wanted to move to a nicer space. They took us to their upstairs dining room that was extremely nice and quiet. I had the eggplant ravioli, which did not leave me disappointed at all!
Their pasta is incredibly fresh, and again, the portion was perfect! I also had my first Tiramisu for dessert. Just for the record, they do not add rum to the cake.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience there. The service at that restaurant was awesome! We could tell they were intrigued by us by the type of questions they asked along with taking our orders and checking on how everything was at our table.
Sidebar: We noticed there weren’t many, if any, Black people in Torino. Sister Nzinga and I met a brother we believed to be homeless who was asking for money, but he was along the outskirts of the city. His demeanor was indicative of not wanting to pass a certain point. The only time I recall seeing Black people in Torino was on our way out of the Egyptian Museum, but they were selling souvenirs. When they saw us they seemed almost shocked. We realized that Black people were either not openly welcomed or just didn’t venture into Torino for whatever reason. There were many times when less than welcoming experiences did occur while we were visiting, but it didn’t take away from our excitement.
The third day we were in Torino was actually Sister Hassanah’s birth anniversary. Unbeknownst to her, we were all planning a surprise dinner party. We scouted a few restaurants, bought a blueberry gelato cake and balloons.
Once we arrived to the restaurant, myself, Sister Nzinga and Sister Hassanah walked towards the back where Sister Harmoni and Sister Summayah were seated. I noticed they were both acting a bit strange. Almost immediately we all decided to sit outside. Sister Hassanah walked out first, and it was at that moment I saw that Sister Harmoni was hiding the balloons under the table! Talking about a close call (laughs).
Although we wanted to sit outside, the party next to us decided to smoke. Honestly, it seemed like everyone in Torino smoked 🙁
As a result, we decided to go back inside to dine. Sister Hassanah still had no idea we were surprising her for her birthday, so it appeared to her that we had forgotten. After we ate, we could tell she was ready to leave. It was then that we had the servers bring out her cake and balloons! We all dove into the delicious gelato cake!
After leaving the restaurant, we enjoyed the rest of the evening walking around the city. By the way, the sun didn’t begin setting in Torino until 9:30pm.
I have to mention this: Earlier that day I was out shopping with Sister Carmen and visiting stores such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton. One of the highlights of that week was watching how she confidently walked in and introduced herself as the Owner of Al-Nisa Designs. As she handed them her card invited them to Torino Fashion Week to see her segment. They were polite and smiled, but I could tell they weren’t taking her as seriously as they should have. Little did they know it would be her segment that would rock that city to its core! I’m sure they’re looking back at that moment wishing that they had spent more time getting to know her. Oh well…*Kanye shrug*
I do have to mention the $1,500 Chanel bag and $750 shoes lined in pearls that I saw before we left the store. Excuse me, this was in Euros so it would actually be $1,770 for the purse and $884.43 in USD for the pair of shoes.
The following nights of dinner were a blur (laughs). We returned to the restaurant from the second night and then a different restaurant the night of the fashion show. I completely understand why The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad said not to eat spaghetti at every meal, because by night four I was done! The following nights I passed on the pasta! Well after this unique veggie pasta… then I was done 😉
Be sure to check out Part 1: The Story Behind the Missing Luggage!
Hurt2Healing Magazine has been blessed to cover a number of events over the past 10 years of publication. One of the top genres in the H2H is the fashion and beauty segment, where we highlight designers, fashion shows and models that exhibit a unique and sophisticate approach to the industry.
This summer has been eventful for H2H Magazine, to say the least! After “Beyond The Veil” fashion showcase hosted by Muslimat Collective and its successful display of modest fashion and sisterhood, the very next month I received a call and invitation to join Sister Carmen Muhammad for the Torino Fashion Week in Italy. What!!! ??? She informed me that she was invited to debut Al Nisa Designs, which includes showcasing the beautiful MGT-GCC (Muslim Girls Training – General Civilization Class) headpiece!
We understood this was much bigger than any one particular line. It was the opportunity to put the MGT-GCC style of covering, designed by Allah in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, on a world stage.
I was initially invited as the media correspondent on behalf of Hurt2Healing Magazine and The Final Call Newspaper. Just as I did with the Islamic Fashion Weekend, I interviewed Sister Carmen to promote the honorable invitation that would be the opportunity of a lifetime for her and all of us attending. Along with myself, there would be two other designers assisting Al-Nisa Designs, a couple of her brand ambassadors and those who have modeled for her previously traveling to Torino, Italy.
For the next 30 days I prepared myself for what I needed media wise. I planned the shots I wanted to capture for the video footage, and I purchased the necessary equipment that was travel friendly. A LOT of prayer and spiritual preparation went into this as well. Press releases, interviews and word of mouth about what the MGT-GCC were about to embark upon was given to solicit the support and prayers of the Nation Of Islam and our families.
Each of the sisters traveling received five garments from Al-Nisa Designs to model that showcased the MGT style of covering. The plan was to flood the city of Torino with images of Muslim women in ways they’ve never seen before and that would make it near impossible to turn away from. Everything was set, ready and rock solid for Italy. Yet, as soon as we landed the test and trials and our faith in Allah began.
After an eight hour flight and a super long line through customs, when we made it baggage claim, all of our luggage with the exception of one, was recovered. The one suitcase that was missing belonged to Sister Carmen, and to make matters worse it was the suitcase with ALL of the Al-Nisa Designs showcase pieces in it! Yea…exactly! Whatever just crossed your mind, triple that feeling in the moment!
Naturally, she was worried (a total understatement). It was suggested to contact the JFK airport in New York where we departed from to confirm whether the suitcase was loaded onto our plane to Italy. It turned out that it was still in the New York airport! There was a sigh of relief that the worse (it being stolen) hadn’t happened but that it was located and on the next flight to Italy. We were told to expect it at 2 a.m. the next morning (Wednesday).
We loaded onto the bus from the Milan airport to the city of Torino, which was a little over an hour away. I think just about all of us passed out once we were in our seats, except Sister Carmen, which I’m more than sure her mind was fixed on getting her luggage within arms reach. To give you an idea of the time difference, we departed New York at 6PM. We arrived in Italy at 8AM. We were eight hours ahead of our home cities.
Two whole days passed by and the suitcase was still not in Italy. On the third day (Friday) a few team members were prepared to travel back to Milan’s airport to find out what was going on. Myself, Sister Carmen and one of the other designers Sister Sonya, decided on an alternative considering she was scheduled to attend the B2B meetings with other designers. Yep, Torino Fashion Week had already kicked off and she did not have her showcase pieces. Although her segment wasn’t until Sunday, she had to have her pieces lined up with the other designers in a room specially designated for the fashion week.
Sister Carmen wanted to go by her hotel room first to get the extra room key. She walked in first and I walked in second. Before I made it all the way into the door, I noticed a large purple printed suitcase sitting upright in the hallway. From the description given at the airport, it matched what I was looking at. I looked at Sister Sonya and called after Sister Carmen, “Wait a minute! Is THIS your missing luggage?” Sister Carmen ran back into the hallway and screamed for joy! Sure enough, it was!
Evidently the concierge brought it to the room after she left earlier that morning. Wow! All praise is due to Allah! She rolled the bag into her room and opened it to make sure all of her pieces were inside and that nothing had been tampered with.
Everything was there and in perfect condition. You could literally see the stress and weight of the situation lift from her shoulders. Her mood was tremendously elevated. All we could do was laugh and thank Allah for the reunion of Sister Carmen and her luggage. We quickly called the other two team members to inform them the suitcase was at the hotel so they wouldn’t make that hour trip to the airport.
Now, Sister Carmen was ready to engage Day 1 of Torino Fashion Week! Watch the below video as she makes her official entrance! Part 2 of The Testimony of Torino forthcoming!
On Day 2 we attended the fashion segments to show love and support for the other designers participating in Torino Fashion Week.
This was also when the Torino Fashion Week photographer took the photo that went viral of the MGT-GCC recording the fashion show!
While we were backstage, one of the Torino Fashion Week photographers were so in awe of Sisters Hassanah and Harmoni that she offered an impromptu photo shoot!
After attending the first set of showcases, we walked down the cobble stoned street to an area filled with cafe`s and boutiques. We enjoyed sister table talks, coffee, tea and cheesecake. I had a nice warm slice of quiche that I enjoyed so much I forgot to take a photo of it :-D.
We were approached by so many people who wanted to know who we were and the meaning behind our style of dress. They were incredibly curious and intrigued by us, and since we were all dressed in the rose pink garments, we were hard to miss.
When they asked who we were, we replied, “The Nation Of Islam”, “Farrakhan” and “MGT-GCC”. We receive so much love, it was overwhelming and humbling. One after the other, families and individuals came to hug us and speak to us. This was happening every single day we were in Torino, especially when we were in our garments and headpieces. There was no denying that Master Fard Muhammad, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan have made friends for us all over the world! All praise is due to Allah!
One Italian woman riding her bike circled back to speak to us. When we said the name, “Farrakhan”, she smiled, nodded her head and said, “Yes, yes”! This was certainly a highlight of the week!
Click below to watch the video coverage from DAY 2 of Torino Fashion Week!
TORINO, Italy—What more could a person ask for than for their life dream to become a reality before the entire world? Opportunities like that don’t come often so when Muslim fashion designer, Carmin Muhammad, was invited to participate in Torino Fashion Week in Italy, she accepted without hesitation.
Out of 125 participants, only five were invited from the United States, of which Carmin Muhammad of Al Nisa Designs, was the only Black modest designer.
From the moment, the Al Nisa Designs team stepped foot into Torino, Italy everyone wanted to know who they were and about the meaning of their distinct headpiece and garment. Every day numerous individuals and families would approach the group of women to meet them and take photos with them.
It was as if the whole city stopped to behold the presence of God in the Muslim Girls Training and General Civilization Class (M.G.T. and G.C.C.), the women and girls of the Nation of Islam under the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan. The Muslim sisters received endless compliments on their attire and beauty throughout their weeklong stay. This year, Torino Fashion Week, June 28-July 3, featured a modest designer segment produced by the Islamic Fashion and Design Council, featuring over two dozen designers from around the world including Carmin Muhammad.
Ms. Muhammad, a long-time and experienced designer extended invitations to a small group of Al Nisa Designs team members to accompany her and share what seemed to be a surreal, yet, long-awaited opportunity to represent the Nation of Islam on a world-wide platform that was specially created to showcase modest fashion.
Hassanah Muhammad (Rialto, Calif.), Harmoni Muhammad (Los Angeles), Summayah Muhammad (Rialto, Calif.), Nzinga Muhammad (Rialto, Calif.), this writer Ebony Saffiyah Muhammad (Houston), Scherri Muhammad (Rialto, Calif.), Georgette Muhammad (Rialto, Calif.) and Sonya Muhammad (Calhoun, La.) were among the delighted band of M.G.T. and G.C.C. to take part in the nine day fashion expedition. Along with them was Mikal Muhammad (Los Angeles) who served as the group’s security to ensure the safety of the sisters while in Italy.
“It was such a blessing to be in Torino, Italy at the invitation of Sister Carmin Muhammad, to represent the teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad,” expressed Georgette Muhammad, a fellow designer and owner of Freedom Apparel.
“When we came through as sisters and they (people of Torino) saw us dressed in the garment in the same style, everyone was in awe of us,” explained Scherri Muhammad, who assisted as the traveling manager of the Al Nisa Designs collection.
No one could have prepared the group of Muslim women for the reception, support, love and attention that was showered upon them during the whole week in Torino. Even during what was considered “down time” when the group toured the city on foot in their modest Muslim attire and draped scarves, people were drawn to them recognizing that there was something different and special about them. All praises are due to Allah (God)!
On multiple occasions, special accommodations were made for them at dinner to be seated in the area of their choice, that was modest and secure. The video footage produced by the writer of this article Ebony S. Muhammad the publisher of Hurt2Healing Magazine, offered a behind the scenes look at all four days Al Nisa Designs took part in Torino Fashion Week. The video presentations displayed the business networking events and workshops that were facilitated. The debut night of Al Nisa Designs was captured as well as reactions from attendees from all over the world.
The Torino Fashion Week awards ceremony, where Carmin Muhammad received the Top Three Designer award from Ala Hamdan and the Louis Vuitton honorary brand award was recorded and released online for the world to view.
“My goal in filming this entire fashion week was to showcase to the world of what Master Fard Muhammad, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan are producing inside the women and girls in the Nation of Islam, and to bring everyone along for the experience,” said Ebony S. Muhammad.
“When we were walking around in our uniform, it’s not like when we walk around in America. It’s different. It’s kind of like they know what they’re looking at,” said Nzinga Muhammad, an Al Nisa Designs assistant who captured the fashion show video footage seen in the day 4 video compilation.
One thing is for sure, Carmin Muhammad and her team made a lasting impression on the entire city. Various newspapers and media outlets featured images of the M.G.T, referring to the group as “The Pink Ladies In Hijabs.” Photos of the Al Nisa Designs team were featured throughout the official Torino Fashion Week Facebook page. Carmin Muhammad conducted multiple interviews, with Modest Magazine as well as RAI Italia Television. Immediately following the debut night, various news outlets released coverage with headlines referring to how Al Nisa Designs “stole the show.”
