Rihanna has come under fierce criticism after lingerie models at her latest fashion show danced to a song that appeared to be a remix of an Islamic hadith.

On Friday, the Barbadian singer launched Savage X Fenty Volume 2, the second edition of her lingerie line, escorted by a pre-recorded fashion show on Amazon Prime.

In one segment of the show, social media users noticed that models danced to a song called “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe. The song samples a narration of a hadith – a saying by the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which Muslims use as guidance.

The hadith in question is from Sunan Ibn Majah 3959. It has been classified as Sahih (authentic).

In the song, the hadith appears to have remixed a recitation by Kuwaiti preacher Mishary bin Rashid Alafasy.

Muslims, along with non-Muslims, took to social media to criticize Rihanna, accusing her of disrespecting Islam by using the sacred text in a sexualized context.

Some have noted that Rihanna has used “Doom,” which appears to draw on the Judgment Day’s theme in the hadith segment, in another fashion show three years ago.

Chloe’s most recent Instagram post – ironically captioned “stress zero” – has hundreds of users criticizing her track on it. Her Instagram has since limited interactions, while both her Facebook and Twitter accounts were deactivated.

On Monday, she reactivated her Twitter and posted an apology. 

“I want to deeply apologize for the offense caused by the vocal samples used in my song ‘Doom.’ The song was produced using samples from Baile Funk tracks I found online. At the time, I wasn’t aware that these samples used text from an Islamic Hadith,” Chloe wrote. 

“I take full liability for the fact that I didn’t research these words properly and want to thank those of you who have taken out the time to explain this to me. We’ve been in the procedure of having the song urgently removed from all streaming platforms.”
