home for Eid 🙏🏻🕋 #EidMubarak 🇱🇾🇹🇳+🇲🇦🇮🇹🇮🇪=🇺🇸
someone who has never been to the Middle East, DMed me saying it smells like camel piss. I sent back a photo of this view. I smell flowers, a pool, greenery, and desert air post a spontaneous rain storm. (And yes I obviously know Morocco is in North Africa, in the context of his messages they were focused on Muslim majority countries, man some of y’all just look for reasons to say something smh.) May he get the opportunity to visit one day too.

Our first INTERNATIONAL @ISYFOUNDATION TRIP!!! 📍Morocco 🇲🇦 We visited a women’s shelter on the outskirts of Marrakech. We had the privilege of sitting down with each woman and asking her specifically about her needs and the needs of her child(ren) so we could make personalized care packages. More than half were pregnant or had given birth within the last two weeks — all survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse. We get SO many messages asking how to start with ‘care packages’ — we’ve been doing this for over 10 years and our method started and continues to be: listen with intent. sit with the people you want to serve and ask about them and their needs. never assume you know better. This method has allowed us to gain trust, to build with others, to understand and to learn about people on a deeper level, and to truly see the light and opportunity in being of service to others. Thank you to the incredible women who opened their doors for us and welcomed us with open arms — and the directors and guide to made it possible (they are the ones photographed). Thank you to YOU all for continuing to support our efforts. This would never be possible without you. May we always be in a position to help, give, love and serve others. AMEEN. @ISYFoundation (more of the journey (w captions) on stories/highlights, s/o to @salwatagouri for being a superwoman mA)
nm chillin, u?
IT’S OFFICIAL!! (FINALLY, alhamdulilah) I truly believe no one owes us their stories. It is a privilege for others to share their most vulnerable truths and an ultimate responsibility to do right by those who trust us. Honest storytelling is an act of service. I am beyond proud to announce our new intent based production/content company “At Your Service” For our first project, we have partnered with the PHENOMENAL @pulsefilms on my upcoming series :IN AMERICA WITH NOOR. This project stemmed from the countless messages you all have sent, sharing your personal stories during my reporting journeys. It is for us as Americans to begin talking WITH each other instead of AT each other, a way to build bridges through stories and leave room for longer conversations. :IN AMERICA WITH NOOR will also be the answer to all of the questions we’ve received from our travels around the world about what America is REALLY LIKE. This is a series for ALL OF US. We truly cannot wait to be AT YOUR SERVICE. x
Changing my profile photo #RedForKashmir —when we went #blueforSudan it DID make a difference. There’s a total internet and communication shutdown in Kashmir as this massive escalation of the crisis is taking place. Please get informed about this issue. We cannot look away. This is devastating. I’ve added info/perspectives in the swipes. To anyone familiar with the issue or directly connected to people in the region please comment/DM updates. I’ve been watching @withkashmir + @standwkashmir for updates. 💔
and we back!! what should @salwatagouri and I do in Marrakech + Essaouira?? Only here for the week. And obv we already crossed off the YSL Musée + Le Jardin Majorelle. 💛
The most incredible and TALENTED crew I’ve ever worked with — and for the most special shoot yet!!! (extra s/o to @naivashaintl for being an actual magician with scarves. it has been such a struggle to find a stylist who could work with scarves. so honored to work with you!!!! if you ever need a hijab stylist - HIRE HER!!!!!!!!)
Edited — Thoughts on Banana Republic Hijab Collection: For all the brands who are following this — when you want to cater to a new community, invest in diverse consultants from across the community, seek multiple opinions from different perspectives to mitigate your risk and provide the best possible product or service for the entire community you are looking to serve, from start to finish.
PROGRESS!!! Worked on bettering my form over the barrel and getting over with a spot. So many of the tries I think I’ll jump and then I stop out of fear, and I talk out loud to myself and tell myself I can do it, that I’m capable. BUT - I also ask Sarah (our coach) and Johnathan to TELL ME TO MY FACE I can do it. Sometimes hearing it from people we trust makes us believe it more than if we tell ourselves. This is just pure joy for me. I have butterflies and jitters thinking about working on this. I love walking myself through the fear into courage every time. Whatever it is you’re afraid to try, stop talking yourself out of it. Stop psyching yourself out. YOU CAN. YOU CAN. YOU CAN. I was telling JVN this means so much to me because I put the intention out there with my love for this and the universe opened up with a path to work on something that makes me feel joy. Reclaim your power, channel your fear. You got this, I promise. thank you, Sarah for spotting me!!! — and thank you @JVN for being the best cheerleader!!!!
nothing to say except #MASHALLAH — I love y’all so much. ❤️ 🇲🇦 🇮🇹 🇮🇪 🇺🇸 🇧🇩 🇱🇾
MY AWESOME FRIEND @BOBBYHUNDREDS WROTE AN INCREDIBLE BOOK!!! NYC — we are all hanging tonight for a conversation, come through!!!! #ThisIsNotaTShirt
I used to do gymnastics from age 3-14. Then I moved to a new town, put on the hijab a little over a year later, and thought I would never tumble again. I’ve been thinking about it a lot more lately, inspired by the beautiful ballerina @stephaniekurlow and my dear friend @JVN. Today for the first time 11 years + 3 bobby pins in this hoodjab later and we are back!! A lot of it was rooted in fear but our instructor reminded us of this brilliant Harry Potter quote and we were golden. GONNA GET THIS BACK HANDSPRING. HERE’S TO DAY 1. So much pure joy this morning. I love you, thank you, @jvn
hi i appreciate you
And we back! On Instagram (since it’s been down all day) and with a NEW EPISODE!!! I interviewed my dear friend @ElaineWelteroth for #TheBarneysPodcast on her new book #MoreThanEnough, life’s journeys and how we can better navigate, and dished on our experiences within journalism. We cried and laughed and hugged a whole lot. Listen wherever you get your podcasts!! (Link in bio)
FELLOW PODCAST LISTENERS!!! I need your input...For my @barneysny podcast takeover I am highlighting 8 leaders pushing culture forward today. We have 7 INCREDIBLE humans we have already locked in/recorded. For the last episode — I want to know who YOU think would be perfect for this season. Comment below + tag who you think we should have on!!! xx
SALAM SHALOM — #JumuahMubarak from our Jewish brothers and sisters at @cbst_nyc ❤️💛🌈
This is an aura photograph. It was taken by @bright_fuchsia to capture the energy around me + us. The opportunity came at the end of a three week trip that began with energy healing. I’ve had people around me tell me about my energy, the colors they’ve seen, the way they’ve felt. Specifically about my reds and Adam’s purples. We are so protective of the energies we keep around us, so it was remarkable to finally see the things we’ve felt. I won’t go too much into it — but actually seeing this for the first time was such a memorable experience. Thank you, @curatedbyFB.
When we said we were working on TRULY PUSHING OUR CULTURE FORWARD...we MEANT IT. That means highlighting the leaders who do so every single day. I’m so proud to announce one of my new projects — a takeover of Season 3 of the @BarneysNY podcast. We worked SO hard to curate an unbelievable guest list this season — each episode will inspire you, make you laugh, cry, scratch your head, and celebrate those who are fighting the good fight for ALL OF US!! Including @tanfrance, @elainewelteroth, @diet_prada — and more of your favorites. Talked more about this and other fun work things in the Barney’s Window piece. Link in bio and don’t forget to subscribe!!
(Part 2 of 2) I am TIRED...and I AM fighting for something...I’m fighting to be respected for the work I ACTUALLY do. #CannesLions

When in Italy, how many of gelatos are you allowed to have a day? (If you’re my mother or my trainer you’re not allowed to answer 👀)
Changed my profile photo to this as an effort to raise awareness on what is happening in the #SudanUprising...there is a MASSACRE going on in Sudan right now. The details are brutal and gruesome. The media coverage is incredibly minimal. Please get informed. @hasanminhaj just did an episode of @patriotact on the issue - I haven’t watched yet, but I know it’ll be a great and informative source. Please don’t scroll past the news about Sudan. Please keep reading. To any of you who are Sudanese and have suggestions on what I/we can do — please please comment or DM. 💔
thinking we should just move here already 🇮🇹
a place too beautiful for photos #Ischia
there are more stories in this photo than I can count. this photo and this night will forever be one of my favorites. 📸: @dylandon_
khafif eid ft. the tagouris 🕌🌟
I recently watched a mini documentary on traditional ways people have printed on silk scarves. I was SO fascinated by the intentionality and storytelling done through every print. Now, anytime I see a silk scarf with an intricate print I love to look for stories within the design. Tap to see her. @prada #PradaFW19 #PradaFoulardForever #ad
EID MUBARAK!!!! Okay — so this is my favorite time of year because of all the family traditions. I will be posting on my stories today to share how we celebrate. (also, no one does Eid like the Khafifs MASHALLAH ;)) ps. full #Eid fit in the last post!! WOOOHOO!!!! 🕋🕌🌟💐🏆🎪
