      Muslim artists' believes are related to Quran verses which show God's grace and dignity. Therefore their works could be the manifestation of what Quran verses express about heaven. In this way, Persian garden-carpet would be the showing of garden-heaven picture that itself is considered as the blaze of Quran paradise. Quran paradise patterns are used in both Iranian carpets and gardens which help us know Muslims' believes through their art. The aim of this research is to recognize the ancient patterns of Persian garden in Quran verses, especially AlrahmanSorah, and investigating how they are used in Persian carpet structure. The questions that are posed in this research are:1) How do Quran verses, especially AlrahmanSorah, describe heaven? 2) How can we see Quran paradise patterns in Persian garden structure and carpet-garden? To answer these questions, a descriptive-analytic method, which relies on comparative techniques, is used. The results of the research show that the structure of garden-carpet in Islamic Iranian art agrees with the indexes of Quran paradise. Therefore, it could be concluded that the carpet–garden is considered as the sample of heaven-garden with semantic, functional, and somatic trial orders. Manuscript Document

      The mosque is a subject that the Quran has dealt with in a comprehensive manner. One of the aspects of mosque emphasis in the Quran that has received less attention is the issue of construction and location of mosques.

If in the mosques of the Qajar period, 4 principles have been observed, which include stability and strength (even in this case, the use of lower quality materials and the use of rapid construction techniques, the strength of mosques compared to previous periods and to Especially in the early Islamic period.
