Recently, the number of mosques dramatically increased due to dramatic increase of urban and populations. About 3.6 million of mosques are spreading around the world and the number of mosques is expected to increase to 3.85 million in year 2019, which consume huge amount of energy. However, comparing to other building types, the searching in terms of enhancing sustainability and reduce energy consumption is considered as a new topic. In addition, only on the last 20 years the researchers have highlighted the issues that confronted the mosque building. In this paper a literature review is presented on previous 20 years of researches which aims to investigate the current situation of researches on predicting the energy consumption of mosques. Moreover, to investigate the issues confronting the sustainability achievement and energy efficiency criteria of mosques as well as provides recommendation for future studies. Although there is such a high annual energy used per capita, the results show clear gab and lack of researches in many aspects in regard with mosques. Accordingly, this emphasizes the need for adopting new policies from government and applying new strategies to decrease energy consumption by applying energy efficiency criteria. The conclusion summarized several recommendations for future studies.
