For the third consecutive year using the hashtag #BlackOutEid, created by Aamina Mohamed (she's on Twitter at @krennylavitz), Black Muslims—in an effort to showcase the diversity of the Muslim world—have taken to social media to post pictures of their Eid celebrations.

As the festivities come to an end today, take a look at some of our favorite #BlackOutEid photos below:
