There is misconception in Islamic Architecture and Muslim Architecture.
Islam teaches simplicity in life (including architecture) means no extra expenditure on any thing. If we consider Islamic Architecture, it should functional. As far as the decorations are concerned, there is no need. Its examples are: The Holy Kabba, Mosque and house of The Profit in their original form which are not existing presently, they are changed with the time. About the characters of buildings: Minarets, Domes & Arches etc. were made for functional needs.
But Muslim Architecture means the buildings constructed by muslims in different regions of the world during their ruling period. Muslim Architecture differs in different regions due to Geography, Geology and Climate etc.
So it should be cleared in mind the difference between Islamic and Muslim Architecture.
