Muslims around the world have expressed their disapproval after Rihanna used sacred text from the Hadith in her Savage X Fenty show 3 days ago.

During the star’s fashion show which aired on Amazon Prime, half-naked models danced to a song called Doom by London-based producer Coucou Chloe. The song, however, remixes a hadith by Prophet Muhammad which Muslims consider sacred.

For those that are not familiar with the Islamic religion, hadith is sacred text which Muslims use for daily worship and overall guidance. Hence having naked models dance to this was viewed as an insult to the religion.

“I really liked Rihanna thinking she was one of the unproblematic people but after seeing the videos I’m actually disappointed,” said one fan after watching the video.

“Rihanna remixing a hadith about the Day of Judgement and its signs into a song is so ironically satanic,” said another.

The controversy is also very ironic given that Rihanna always preaches about the inclusivity of race or religion through her work. In an interview for E entertainment, she actually said: “I wanna make stuff that I can see on the people that I know, and they come in different shapes, sizes, races, religion.”

Although many fans have called for an apology, the star and her team are yet to respond to the outrage.
