This level varies according to the activities and the size of the interior space. The pursuit of lighting spaces in a way that is compatible with the functional and aesthetic dimensions in the interior Islamic design is one of the controversies worthy of research and study, as it is possible to establish patterns of lighting in the modern interior design follow the principles of lighting used in Islamic architecture, where patterns of natural and industrial lighting have both functional and aesthetic objectives. The importance of this research is to study the effect of traditional lighting patterns used in Islamic architecture on the lighting of internal spaces, and how to influence the formation and structure of modern and contemporary spaces by studying the impact of these patterns in controlling the quantity and efficiency of natural and industrial lighting in the vacuum through an analytical study of the performance of these patterns.
