Rihanna accused of disrespecting Islam during Savage X Fenty show (video)


Rihanna is under attack from the Muslim community as they accuse her of disrespecting the values of Islam during her recent Savage X Fenty fashion show.

The singer is being called out because of a song that was used during her fashion show which premiered on Friday, October 2, on Amazon Prime Video.

The song at the centre of this controversy is named “Doom”. The song reportedly samples vocals of a Hadith being read in Arabic and it had been played at Rihanna's fashion show as models scantily-clad in lingerie sashayed.

The Hadith is believed to be a record of the words, actions, and the silent approval of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Hadith are called “the backbone” of Islamic civilization, and in Islam, the authority of hadith as a source for religious law and moral guidance ranks second only thereto of the Quran.

This action didn't go down well with some Muslims and that they have taken to social media to slam Rihanna.

One Twitter user wrote: "Rihanna is liable for this even if she didn’t choose the music. she hired her team and she must’ve heard the songs beforehand and simply because she’s rihanna doesn’t give her a free pass to disrespect a religion.

Another user wrote: ‘Rihanna is tousled for using a song with a Hadith in it to play at her LINGERIE show. what's up with artists using Islam as an aesthetic?? Have some respect.’

Below is the video and also more Twitter reactions from Muslims.
