Local authorities in Kelantan have implemented the Islamic dress code in stages to safeguard/take care of the general welfare of Muslim women in Kelantan. In this study, what is emphasized is the perception of Muslim women in regards to the aurah covering and to measure the extent of their awareness in receiving the campaign to cover their aurah in accordance with Islamic syariah and rules of the Kelantan state government. This study is a quantitative study involving 220 Muslim female respondents aged 18 to 20 years. The findings of the study showed that the majority of respondents agreed with the campaign implemented by the state government in accordance with their understanding. However, in terms of the levels of shariah-compliant practices are still low. The majority of respondents stated that they always observe Muslim women not wearing shariah compliant clothing. This shows that the acceptance of the aurat covering campaign carried out by the Kelantan state government is still not supported with the practice of wearing Muslim women in their daily lives. The findings of this study are expected to provide clear information to certain parties in order to strengthen their efforts to reinforce the implementation of the shariah-compliant application campaign in Kelantan.
