During her Savage X Fenty fashion show in New York, R&B and pop singer Rihanna was accused of using Islam as an "esthetic" for playing a hadith.

Hadiths are writings about the Prophet Muhammed, which Muslims believe were spoken by him and later written down by his followers. They are sacred and regarded as second only to the Quran in importance in Islam.⠀

In the song, 'Doom' by Coucou Chloe, which was performed as drag queens modelling Rihanna's lingerie line at the concert, a line that is assumed to be Hadith about the day of judgment is narrated.

Many individuals called her out for disrespecting the Muslim community in a series of tweets;

Rihanna has yet to respond to this backlash.

Meanwhile, according to a new interview, Rihanna says she has conducted "loads of writing camps" to create material for a new album.
