Netizens are criticizing Rihanna after her latest fashion show where her lingerie models danced to a track which most of the Islam community described as the remix of an Islamic hadith. You can read a user’s tweet below.
y’all don’t realize how disrespectful it was what Rihanna did. she didn’t use music thats in Arabic or anything. she used a hadith, hadith and arabic songs are two different things, and she used the words of our prophet,that are meant to guide muslims, for her lingerie show…

On Friday, she launched the second edition of her lingerie line called ‘Savage X Fenty Volume 2’. The fashion show was recorded and uploaded on Amazon Prime, which showed numerous models. After watching the entire show, some people noticed one thing in a segment of the document. The models were dancing to a track named Doom.
Moreover, their performance was produced by Coucou Chloe. Some social media users stated that the song is a narration of hadith which Muslims use for guidance. It contains sayings by the Prophet Muhammad.
So after the documentary’s release, many Muslims and non-Muslims stormed their social media accounts to heavily criticize the 32 years old singer.
They accused Rihanna of not respecting Islam and using the sacred saying by Prophet Muhammad in a sexualized context. Some users also said that Rihanna used the same track three years back in another fashion show.
Recently, more than hundreds of people are criticizing the London based Coucou Chloe on her ironically captioned Instagram post ‘stress zero’.
After the incident, she hasn’t interacted much on her Instagram and had deactivated her Twitter and Facebook accounts. On Monday, she reactivated her Twitter account and posted an apology to everybody. You can check out the tweets below.

Many people praise Rihanna, but this time, she has appeared on the news for a different reason. Last week, Savage X Fenty included models of different sizes and races, which earned a lot of love from people. She had also included plus-sized male models. However, she has mixed records when it comes to the Representation of Muslims.
It is not her first time inappropriately using Muslim songs or models. In 2017, she had included Halima Aden in her cosmetic brand Fenty Beauty.
Last year, she also promoted Fenty sunglasses with a model in the hijab. Sources also reveal that she has got accused of appropriating Islamic dress. You will find multiple news regarding this stuff on the Internet, where she used Islam as an aesthetic.
