One of the important principles of Islamic architecture and urban planning is the neighborhood-centeredness which lack of attention to this important principle has caused various problems in the physical social system of contemporary cities in Iran, including increasing the traffic load of the city due to trans-local traffic and environmental issues resulting from it and so on.
Resolving these issues requires reviving the principle of neighborhood-centeredness in contemporary cities, but the premise of this is to explain what the neighborhood is from Islamic perspective which part of this issue is related to explaining the numerical characteristics of the neighborhood and especially its area.
In this research, using the logical-argumentative research and citing religious texts and sources, an attempt has been made to deduce the optimal pattern of neighborhood architecture based on its maximum desired size from Islamic perspective.
According to the findings of this study, a desirable neighborhood from Islamic perspective is a neighborhood with the center of the mosque with a maximum of 160 houses on four sides of the mosque (up to 40 on each side) and with a maximum area of 200000 square meters.
