The mosque is an important building for the needs of the Muslim community. However, the usage and construction of current day mosques are unlike those in the days of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. This is due to the influences of patrons who utilized mosques as a symbol of politics and economic stature, the influence of designers who considered mosques as an aesthetic symbol, and the misconceptions of the society who perceived mosques as a house of God. Based on these issues, the objective of this study was to identify the relationship and ideological influence of Tabligh movement towards mosque’s architecture as a dakwah centre. Mosque by Tabligh was selected because of the ideology of its patron who emphasized Sunnah in his dakwah movement. Therefore, this study applied two research paradigms, which were the interpretivism (hermeneutics) to translate the patron’s ideology and the structuralism (semiotic) to understand the meaning behind the physical construction of a building. From the three selected mosques, the study found that there was a significant influence on the Seri Petaling Mosque that indicated the dakwah ideology of openness, orderly, simplicity, respect, and responsibility in its form and space. Although the findings showed that there are significant influences of the patron’s ideology in the design of the mosque as a dakwah centre, the mosque, however, was built because of its current functions and merely due to the users logic. As a result, the mosque’s architecture showed a lacklustre of the local cultural values and identity. This study is important as a reference because it contributes to the study of communication in the architecture of buildings, which was devoted to the influences of dakwah movement ideology towards mosque architecture in Malaysia as a dakwah center.
