“Globalization” not in the geographical sense but in the political and ideological sense, is a plan formulated by the rich and powerful countries of the world, and it means the continuation of economic, political and military dominance over other countries in the world. One form of domination in the present age is by way of cultural aggression, through which it seeks to undermine the cultural and religious foundations of the Muslim people, and especially the Islamic way of life. In the field of architecture and housing, today, compared to the past, forms and living spaces, with a tendency to be similar to imported patterns and alien to their foreign identities, have also alienated the society and completely changed it. In the words of the Supreme Leader: "One of the dimensions of progress with the 'Islamic concept' is lifestyle, social behavior and way of life". Therefore, the conceptualization of the mission of "Islamic lifestyle" as a container and component shaping "Iranian-Islamic housing" should be considered. In today's social life, the concept of "lifestyle" has a special meaning. As the influence of tradition is reduced, and daily life is reconstructed in terms of the interaction of local and global factors more and more people are forced to choose their lifestyle from a variety of options. "Islamic lifestyle" is a way of life that is based on Islamic and Quranic teachings and values. The Qur'an, which is the plan of human life, has shown the best way of life to man, which ultimately leads him to the happiness of this world and the hereafter. "Islamicness of etiquette" and "monotheism of being a way of life" mean that "lifestyle" is the bedrock of "divine worship" in human life. In Islamic lifestyle, "faith" and "righteous deeds" have a special place and in various verses of the Qur'an and narrations from the Infallibles (AS) as a way to achieve "good life" is introduced as the highest position of this type of lifestyle. In the present study, the purpose of using the word "Islamic" is anything that belongs to and is committed to the principles, ideals, values and norms of Islam and in a broader sense, invented or expressed by Muslims, and the meaning of the word "Iranian-Islamic" is anyone who is in the common denominator of being Iranian and being Islamic and does not have principles and identities that do not oppose either of these two can be called "Iranian-Islamic". In other words, anything that is based on the beliefs, ideals, values and norms of the Islamic Republic of Iran or the discourse of the Islamic Revolution is called "Islamic Iran". The present study is of qualitative type and in two parts: the first part, the necessary information in the field of relationship between "globalization" and "Islamic lifestyle" is presented and in the next stage, the relationship between "lifestyle" and "housing" in historical periods is analyzed. In the second part, using the descriptive-analytical method, the key words of the research have been researched and explored, and using the components and effects that are related in this regard, the "basic principles and criteria of Iranian-Islamic housing" were explained. The results show that the current "Islamic spirit" in the Iranian Muslim living space can be seen in the manifestation of the truth, the concept of "good life" as the highest degree of Islamic lifestyle, in the "Iranian courtyard" as its beating heart.
