Lol I wasn’t gonna answer this but i need somewhere to rant so i might as well try my best to explain things here. Like i wanna scream and shout and break down WHY this is SO upsetting. Firstly If you’re not muslim i believe this topic is not for you to comment on and you shouldn’t go telling a group (especially one as marginalised as Muslims ) how to feel. So fuck everyone who has taken that approach. It is not wrong of Muslims to ask for respect and expect our religious text to not be used in a way that offends us this is simple logic.
I didn’t notice the sample in the studio version but when i heard the live version it was really undeniable and people have even linked the original of the little boy reciting man i feel sick to my stomach i nearly cried ngl.
Like ok the Qur’an is special to muslims as the word of Allah and we are very protective of it both in written form and when it is recited. It is special there’s a very personal emotional attachment many of us have to it and for someone ESPECIALLY a non Muslim to put it in a song is a smack in our faces. Not to mention the fact that music is Haram (although this idea has variations in certain schools of thought the general consensus across the board is that music is forbidden) so essentially you’re taking our religious text and using it in something that goes directly against what is taught in our religion. Just for the sake of using something “exotic” it’s so typical YG and it hurts so much.
Also that’s a kid reciting. They are profiting off using a child’s voice without his/his parents permission or acknowledgement , even if it wasn’t Quran that’d be alarming!!!! I cannot stress the intricacy and skill that goes into reciting Qur’an. It takes so much practice and work to get to the level of that boy reciting and my heart breaks for the little kid who worked so so so hard for something he is very proud of that he believes to be pleasing Allah and it has been used in this way.
CL , Teddy and YG disgust me you cannot continue to use things that do not belong to you in any way you please. And people saying maybe they didn’t know like MATE THEY DID NOT EVEN USE A WELL KNOWN RECITER THEY FOUND A SMALL CHILD WHO IS NOT FAMOUS LIKE HOW MUCH RESEARCH DID YOU HAVE TO DO TO FIND THAT AUDIO?????
I’m SO annoyed by the people trying to belittle faith to justify what they did nah fuck that you cannot put someone down for what they believe just to protect your idol i’m so angry and disappointed it really really ruined my day
THOSE R MY THOUGHTS IDK IF THIS MAKES SENSE IM SO MAD THOUGH
When we’re 60 and we’re making our last album, I want to get everyone together just like now to make it. But then instead of a group dancing scene we’ll probably just play chess.
if u ever see me unfollow u and then refollow u it was probably on accident bc I was stalking u on mobile
