Singer Rihanna has issued an apology to the Muslim community after receiving backlash for using sacred Islamic verses in a song which was played at her recent Fenty fashion show.

The star-studded Savage X Fenty fashion show debuted on Amazon Prime on Friday, Oct. 2, but  Muslim fans and viewers took offense to a portion of the show in which models clad in lingerie danced to a song which sampled audio of someone reading the Hadith, the holy narrative of the Prophet Mohammad that is deeply revered by the Muslim community.

They took to twitter to call out the singer, and London-based producer Coucou Chloe, whose song “DOOM” featured the controversial Hadith narration.

Rihanna is messed up for using a song with a Hadith in it to play at her LINGERIE show. What is up with artists using Islam as an aesthetic?? Have some respect,” wrote one Muslim Twitter user.

Some people really out her defending this. THEY WERE DANCING TO IT. AT A LINGERIE SHOW. If a non-Christian did this with Christian scriptures people would be going crazy over it,” she also added among other series of tweets.

Apologizing for the unintentionally offensive actions, Rihanna took to both her Twitter and Instagram to say how sorry she is.

I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show,” Rihanna wrote in an Instagram story on Tuesday, Oct. 6

I would more importantly like to apologize to you for this honest, yet careless mistake. We understand that we have hurt many of our Muslim brothers and sisters, and I’m incredibly disheartened by this!

I do not play with any kind of disrespect toward God or any religion and therefore the use of the song in our project was completely irresponsible! Moving forward we will make sure nothing like this ever happens again. Thank you for your forgiveness and understanding,” she concluded.
