This research aims to clarify some criterions and elements in Islamic architecture that are related to the residential privacy. The residenceis the main influential factor on the human values and behaviors. Thus, we notice that the loss of privacy in most residences affects the concept of privacy for the residents. This research uses: deductive, inductive, analytical and descriptive methods. The research concludes that the Islamic residential architecture mostly achieves resident’s privacy. Last but not least, it is my sincerest hope that this study may be used as a reference for all those related to the fields of building construction, so that they may provide solutions to achieve privacy in residential architecture especially in Muslim societies, by reviving this criterion and elements.
