Nura Afia Biography
When most people see a Hijab wearing Islam woman, what comes to their mind is a highly conservative woman, one deeply rooted in the Islam faith. In recent times we are seeing a crop of Islam going against their traditions and embracing modernism even in the midst of criticism. Their argument: their style is still within the precepts of their religion. One of the women we will cover in this article is Nura Afia. She is a Muslim beauty blogger big on Instagram and YouTube. Her journey to become an influencer started with the desire of displaying to the world that a Hijab wearing woman can wear makeup, and be a mother and wife as well.
She was born on 9th February 1993 in Aurora. Nura comes from a family of both Christians and Muslims. Her grandfather and grandmother were Lebanese and Swiss-Lebanese, respectively. Their daughter Anne and Nura’s mother converted to Islam when they moved to the United Started. Nura grew up in the Islam faith despite her grandmother’s criticism. At age 18, Afia got married to her long-time crush Asef Noorzai. Her marriage deepened her Islam faith as Noorzai taught her more about the faith. They were later blessed with two children Laila and Shaith.
Start of an Influencer
As she was taking care of her daughter, Nura became inclined to make up tutorials. She later noticed the Internet had few makeup artits wearing Hijabs. Only a few of them focused on fashion and dressing styles. Nura stepped in to fill the void by creating her own makeup tutorials. Gradually, her videos started getting views and her influence on Instagram grew. She also started working with beauty brands where she met other bloggers and brand advertising agencies.
Since this exposure, Nura has been getting deals one after another. She has managed to work with major brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Revlon, and CoverGirl. Her story has been featured in The Denver Post and Refinery 29
Her success on Instagram motivated Nura and her husband to start a Podcast. In 2021, they started a podcast called The Nura Zais. On the podcast, the couple talks about marriage issues, which they have experienced. They have addressed issues such as maternity leave, sex position, Entanglements, choosing a spouse, and pregnancy.
Podcast, Net Worth and Height
Afia’s success as a make-up artist also attracted criticism. Her critics argue that wearing make-up is against wearing a hijab since the hijab is for hiding a woman’s beauty for her husband only. Afia counters this criticism by claiming that makeup is a form of art that a woman can use to transform her image.
Over the last 1 year, Nura has not been active on her Instagram and YouTube. The reason for her missing action on the Internet is still unknown to her fans. However, she posts sneak pics of her life.
