Posted on December 19, 2020, at 11:30 a.m. ET

This year, due to the pandemic, TikTok became more popular, and the subcultures within the app grew.

One of those groups was Muslim TikTok. Although it already had a massive community on the app, more profiles and videos than ever before went viral in 2020. Muslims on TikTok have been pushing boundaries, trauma bonding, and finding their voice by using the hundreds of trends.

While there were thousands of TikToks that went viral, we have narrowed it down to 41 that people loved this year.

Starting off with the iconic "Pooja, what is this behavior?" remake by a group of friends:

Muslim TikTokers have also been adding their own religious and cultural spins to already popular trends, such as the "don't leave me" challenge.

Some of the trends could be considered inappropriate, as they tend to be sexually suggestive. However, this hasn't stopped Muslim TikTokers from finding out exactly where to draw the line.

For example, people have been using the filter with the sparkles for the trend in which if their eyes don't glimmer, they're not a virgin:

Sometimes there are memes and trends are more embraced by Muslim TikTok than by other groups, such as the photos of Kylie Jenner looking Arab.

Parents have been a massive part on Muslim TikTok in so many different ways. They have been making their own accounts, joining their kids' videos, and been on the receiving end of some shade.
