"I ran because of injustices and because of my boys, who are questioning their (Muslim) identity and whether they belong", Tlaib said in an US television interview in August.
Omar will fill the seat of Rep. Keith Ellison (D), who is running for the state attorney general and is also a Muslim.
Tlaib, who served in the Michigan House from 2009 until 2014, defeated five other candidates in the August primary election to win the nomination to run for a full term representing the heavily Democratic district, which covers much of Detroit and some of its suburbs.
"My success is not only for me but for every Somali, Muslim and minority group, particularly the young girls in the Dadaab refugee camp, where I lived before coming to the US", Ms Omar declared.
Tlaib, a Palestinian-American, ran essentially unopposed in Michigan's 13th Congressional District, which includes Detroit.
For Tlaib, Tuesday's election marks the second time she will have made history in recent years.
In August, she emerged as the victor of a Democratic primary for a seat vacated by John Conyers, a longtime liberal lion who stepped down in December amid sexual harassment allegations and failing health.
She won a seat in the state's legislature in 2016, becoming the first Somali-American lawmaker in the country.
The seat she won is in a predominantly African-American congressional district with few Muslim voters.
"I stand here before you tonight as your congresswoman-elect with many firsts behind my name", she said amid cheers.
While Omar campaigned on a similarly progressive platform, which calls for universal healthcare and tuition-free colleges.
