Noor follows the idealized lives of its "voluptuous, independent and vivacious" title character (Songul Oden) and her attractive, romantic, and supportive husband Muhannad (Kivanc Tatlitug). The show's characters break various Islamic and Arab cultural strictures and it has been criticized by hard-line clerics in the Middle East as a result.
