Reference: Women sexy men can't sleep pray, Bangkok Post, November 1, 2007

According to Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, spiritual leader of the Pan Malaysian Islamic Party, there are too many women in Malaysia who wear sexy clothing. The sight of these women is enough to cause Muslim men sufficient anguish that they are not able to sleep or pray, so shallow is their faith. The answer is not to cover and hide their women nor to sue women for emotional abuse as the good spiritual leader implies. Rather, those who profess to be men of faith should find sufficient depth of devotion, equal to that of Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, and Jews, so that they too can look upon a woman who is not covered from head to toe and still find the mental acuity to worship just as Muslim women are able to look upon an uncovered man and still pray. The defect, if any, is with Muslim men not with sexy women.
