Currently, I see no way to set the color of diacritics. In Arabic diacritics are separate glyphs and should be treated as such in the sense that one can select them and apply any formatting to them.
Steps to reproduce:
Type two Arabic glyphs e.g:
Cannot change the color of the second glyph
Should be able to set the color for each glyph separately.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
I want to be able to type this word in libreoffice

How was that image created? Please also attach the ODT file. This issue is not fixed.

a file with colored fatha in arabic that shows that the problem is solved
This is not really fixed, the mark position is incorrect and depending on the font can be greatly misplaced. For this to be really fixed, the mark position should be the same with and without colors in any font.
I am not sure how you selected the diacritic and changed its color. Why didn't you make the whole word as the one I referred to? If you have typed it separately and then moved it to that location, that won't count of course. There should be an easy way to select the diacritic.
For the implementation to be complete, there should also be a way to find and change the Arabic diacritic color. An example of an app that already implemented this so you understand the issue better is:
