Rihanna gets dragged for using a song containing Islamic Hadith on Savage X Fenty show

Rihanna got dragged for her latest lingerie Savage X Fenty show, which featured a Hadith sped up and mixed with dance music which was played as models walked and performed on the runway.

The name of the song “Doom” and it was created by British producer named Coucou Chloe. It uses vocal samples from verses of the Hadith mixed into the beat. Apparently the topic of the Hadith is about judgment day and the end of times.

The conversation around the use of the Hadith had the internet talking as the Muslim Community was really upset because of the show.

One Tweep posted: “i think the person who created the song knew what they were doing,” one person tweeted. “that is a very specific hadith. U have to go looking to find it. It’s not something non-muslims know unless they research. So the fact that the song is called Doom & the hadith is about the end of times? @rihanna?”

While another added: “i feel like islamaphobia is so normalized to the point where people are calling us dramatic for being mad when our religion gets disrespected? hadith are sacred words of the prophet, they’re used to guide muslims & are second to only the Quran. rihanna should know better.”

Another tweet reads: “okay the fact that rihanna’s show was supposed to be a keystone for ‘inclusion’ while she completely alienated the Muslim community by disrespecting a Hadith recitation is the perfect showcase of how fashion brands & the media have never considered us as a part of their audience.”

Rihanna or her team have not yet responded to the controversy. Volume Two of the Savage X Fenty show is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
