Rihanna Slammed for Using Hadith in Lingerie Show
A performance at Rihanna's Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 2 included Hadith about the Day of Judgment mixed into the beat of the song for which she is drawing flak.
The Barbadian singer has been focusing on her makeup line, Fenty Beauty and her lingerie line, Savage X Fenty. She hasn’t been releasing music and is focusing on her brands instead. On October 2, the “Savage x Fenty Show Vol. 2” was held to promote her new collection. However, some moments of Rihanna’s show have sparked outrage and the show ended in controversy
At the show, for a performance, a song was used that includes verses of Hadith mixed into the beat. The song is called “Doom”, created by London-based producer Coucou Chloe. The remixed Hadith is an explanation of the signs of the Day of Judgment and about the end of times. Released two years ago, Chloe has admitted to remixing audio that turned out to be the Hadith.
Rihanna is facing extreme backlash on social media from Muslims around the world for disrespecting their religion and normalizing Islamophobia. On Twitter, the hashtag “#RihannaIsOverParty” began trending as thousands of users slammed the artist. One user said, “So disturbing how rihanna and her team used a muslim hijabi girl in their fenty makeup line but cant even take the time to actually educate themselves on her religion! a line thats supposed to “represent” diversity no less” One asserted, “Rihanna could go live and spend 3 hours apologizing over and over again for this and i still wouldnt accept it . 3 years ago she allowed the same thing knowing what the hadith meant and how important hadiths are in Islam. so no, no apology could make this right” Another angry individual stated, “So the Hadith rihanna used was about the signs of the day of judgement? I’m actually disgusted”
if you’re not muslim, if you’re an ex muslim, you have absolutely NO say in the rihanna issue. dont silence us because you don’t find an issue with what she did. it was beyond disrespectful to our religion and this happens constantly and it’s just sickening. have some respect

It hurts to see people dance to the words of the Prophet Muhammad without any respect for being sacred words in our religion The words of our Prophet Muhammad are not used for such things Go to hell with you and anyone with you #Rihannaisoverparty
