A. A woman's dress should not attract attention to herself. What does or does not meet this criterion becomes, as alluded above, a question of `urf or custom, linked to the mores of this and that culture. It may be that the common perception of Malaysians concerning their dresses is that they are quite ordinary, while less vivid colors might be deemed strange or look poor. In Turkish culture, to say to one's wife "You are empty" constitutes a formula of divorce without doubt and cannot be denied in a court of shari`a, but this may not be the case in another culture. It is a question of custom. Similarly the dresses Muslim women wear in Malaysia might seem too colorful in Saudi Arabia, while those worn by Muslim women in Saudi Arabi might be deemed to attract attention to oneself in Malaysia. Yet both meet the criteria of the Shari`a, and Allah knows best.
