Abstract: As a city becomes increasingly modern and architects are inclined to adopt a secular approach in design, spaces for traditional practices, such as worship, are commonly under negotiation in society. Often, they end up in grey areas of architecture and urban planning due to the gap between the reality of the society’s demographics and architecture. The study hopes to drive a discussion among the community to participate in the understanding, creation and implementation of the Musollah and other worship spaces in the built environment. Hopefully, it will contribute to the urban life of Muslims and meet the religious and spiritual needs of the people. The creation of a harmonious Islamic space with the built environment will help ensure a sustainable well-being in architecture and the sustainability of Islam.
