Rihanna has been urged to apologise after the narration of an Islamic religious text was included in the soundtrack for her latest lingerie show.
A video of the showcase, which saw models dancing around on stage in the singer’s provocative Savage x Fenty lingerie, was shared on Amazon Prime last week.
Fans were left outraged after discovering Rihanna, 32, had set the show to the song Doom by London producer Coucou Chloe, which features a narration of a sacred Hadith.
In Islam, Hadiths are sacred texts that are believed to have been spoken and actions conducted by the Prophet Muhammad during his lifetime.

Muslims usually use Hadiths alongside the Quran, which is the word of God for guidance in their lives.
The Hadith featured in Doom speaks about the day of judgement and the return of Jesus.
Models at the Savage x Fenty show danced along to the controversial song sped up, making the Hadith difficult to decipher, while wearing Rihanna’s latest lingerie designs.
Celebrity appearances in the show included Miguel, Lizzo, Bella Hadid, Demi Moore and Cara Delevigne.
Thousands of Rihanna fans from varying religious backgrounds took to Twitter to urge her to remove the song from Amazon Prime recording and to apologise for offending Muslims.
Barbadian singer and businesswoman Rihanna, previously used the ‘Doom’ track for her Fenty X Puma show in 2017.
Social media users spotted a Hadith about the day of judgement had been remixed and sped up for models (pictured) to dance to in the show
One person wrote: ‘As a Muslim I’m deeply offended this is beyond words… it’s shameful and pathetic. And all the non-Muslims defending the situation please learn to respect ALL RELIGIONS and perhaps find yourself some guts to speak on what’s wrong. @Rihanna’
Venting frustration, another said: ‘If you guys don’t know much about Islam (that is completely fine) A Hadith is the words/advice that our Prophet Mohammad (SAV) spoke and gave to people to educate them. It is very disrespectful to use it in a video of people dancing and even more in a lingerie show.
A third added: ‘Um? What? So because it’s Rihanna we’re gonna ignore how she’s done it repeatedly? So because it’s Rihanna, we’re going to ignore that she CLEARLY knew how disrespectful this was?
A stream of Twitter users have blasted Rihanna for using a Hadith and are urging her to apologise for causing offense
‘This woman dated a Muslim for years, you’re telling me she’s not aware? Please, shut up.
‘As a Muslim, no words can describe how disappointed I am with Rihanna for letting her models dance to Hadith. Hadith are the sacred words of our prophet, you can’t just use it for your lingerie show. Disgusting and extremely disrespectful,’ another wrote.
Rihanna and her company have not responded to the backlash yet.
