Rihanna Apologizes to the Muslim Community for Islamic Hadith in Show – E! Online

While Rihanna‘s brand has been hailed as an inclusive one, not all of her fans felt properly represented in her Savage x Fenty show. 

On Friday, Oct. 2, Rihanna’s second annual show for her lingerie brand debuted on Amazon Prime Video. While the highly anticipated show was met with praise and applause from some, not all were pleased with the multihyphenate star’s one-of-a-kind presentation. Specifically, Rihanna and the brand came under fire for the use of Coucou Chloe‘s track, “Doom,” during the show. The song reportedly contained a remix of a hadith narration. Hadith is defined as “a collection of traditions containing sayings of the prophet Muhammad which, with accounts of his daily practice (the Sunna), constitute the major source of guidance for Muslims apart from the Quran.”

Offended fans swiftly expressed their criticisms of the song’s use. “My religion is not your aesthetic!!!” some cried out in

Song “Doom” by producer Coucou Chloe included a remix of a Hadith narration when played during a segment of the show. In the Islamic faith the Hadith is a sacred written record representing the traditions or sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, used as guidance by Muslims.

Rihanna criticized after Savage X Fenty lingerie line uses a Hadith at fashion show

Rihanna became the target of criticism over the weekend after music, which was played at her Savage X Fenty lingerie fashion show, included a Hadith in its soundtrack.

The 32-year-old songstress, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, premiered “Volume 2” of her fashion show on Amazon Prime on Oct. 2, and it didn’t take long until viewers at home pointed out that the “Ocean’s 8” star used a Hadith during a runway portion of the show.

Hadiths are accounts of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad and are sacred in the Muslim faith.

“I think the person who created the song knew what they were doing,” one person tweeted in regard to the Hadith, which many claim was sped up and mixed with dance music as models galavanted the runway. “That is a very specific hadith. U have to go looking to find it. It’s not something non-muslims know
