Rihanna Apologizes to Muslim Fans After Using Sacred Islamic Verses in Her Savage x Fenty Fashion Show

From Cosmopolitan

  • Rihanna hosted her Savage x Fenty fashion show last week and used sacred Islamic verse to soundtrack her show.
  • After receiving backlash for the incident, Rih issued an apology on Instagram.

Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show came, saw, and conquered our computer and phone screens last week. I mean, given the fact that there were sooooo many celebrity faces participating in the show—like Paris Hilton, Erika Jayne, Bella Hadid, and more—it was all that people could talk about over the weekend. But something else that people couldn’t stop discussing? The fact that Rih used hadith, the sacred sayings of the prophet Muhammad used to guide Muslims, to soundtrack her show.

Rihanna has apologized after receiving backlash for using a song that includes sacred Islamic scripture during her Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 lingerie fashion show, which was released on Prime Video last week.

Models danced to “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe during one segment of the show, and fans were quick to call attention to the fact that the 2017 song features a remix of a Hadith narration.

“There’s really no way we can let this slide,” one person wrote on Twitter alongside a screen recording of the dance number. “This makes me sick,” a second social media user replied.

In the Islamic faith, the Hadith is a sacred scripture of the sayings and traditions of the Prophet Mohammed. It “comes secondary only to the Quran in terms of textual authority,” according to CNN.
