Strong family ties built on the teachings of Quran and Sunnah produce excellent foundation in forming a household which are constantly under the protection and blessing of Allah and in turn contribute to the overall health of a community. A dwelling filled with the remembrance of Allah will no doubt find an aura of peace and tranquility. This is call a home, a place for a family to worship Allah, to relax body and mind, enjoy legitimate worldly delights, teach, learn and propagate the message of Islam. Therefore, provision and design of a dwelling should be considered important to make it a blessed home. This includes the provision of spaces for religious activities, daily basic chores of households, social production, reproduction hygiene needs, privacy and security. Cultural, religious and sustainable aspects of inhabitants should be considered in the planning and design process of a dwelling in the Malaysia context. The Syariah sources had provided basis for its design to conform to Islamic criteria thereby facilitating various Ibadah activities for the inhabitants and users. A review of theory and philosophy of dwelling from Islamic perspective is analysed to justify the comprehensive living approach promote by Islam. This paper aims to collect data extensively through literature study related to Islamic dwelling and finally basic principles of dwelling design for developing criteria of the adaptability of a home base on Islamic teachings that physically manifests the varied needs of the Islamic system and religious prescriptions will be develop. Dwelling model that incorporates Islamic concept and values derived from these principles will ultimately elevate the spiritual status and strengthen the Ibadah activities of the inhabitants and accomodate Islam’s diversity with a flexible design.
