Keywords:Construction, House; Islamic Architecture, Neighbor's, Prophetic Principles of Construction
Man as a social creature needs clear rules and regulations in every field of life to improve mutual affairs for their sound and peaceful survival and prosperity. Housing and town planning is not only the basic field of human life but also essential parts of promoting human civilizations so, in the contemporary world, there are rules and regulations for house maps, space allocation, open & covered areas, roads, drainage, parks and community centres etc. to create an atmosphere of peace, prosperity and harmony among residents. In this paper, by doing an analytical study of the Historic-Record literature review related to the hadiths of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) related to neighbours’ rights and constructions of houses, an attempt has been made to clarify the principles that the residents have mutual unity, prosperity and peacefulness to create an atmosphere of love, harmony for the promotion of Muslim civilization.
