It only took a reflection of Islamic Ideological system and painted the architecture and interior design with it. Using Gypsum, Bricks, palm stems and adobe to build walls, and palm fronds and adobe for the ceilings constructing mosques and meeting halls, and the interiors were just maintained the basics and necessary items.

City of Fustat was one of the first capital ever constructed by Muslims in Egypt, the ruins which was revealed in 1912 tells so many stories. The only viable remaining of its building is the mosque of Amr Ibn Alaas, which was built in the very first 2 decades of Islamic conquest, constructed on a base of rocks, walls were made of bricks and adobe with palm fronds ceiling.

Nowadays it has a different view due to the expansion process and the restoration actions that has been put to it through centuries.
