    Architectural design defined as “the method of organizing materials and forms in a specific way to satisfy a definite purpose”. The material is one of the tools used in the process of architectural design as specific part of design solution. In order to identify the architectural characteristics and variations in traditional mosques designs, field survey of the building materials of historical mosque was conducted. Local materials used in construction of mosques in six regions identified. According to role of building materials availability in different regions all over the world where Islam was spread, four types of mosques were concluded.
