Cities are the sign of social culture, the important user of natural resources, and producer of the most waste and pollutions, which can affect the people, environment, and also cities. A healthy city is one that is continually creating and improving physical, social, environmental circumstances. A healthy city is also costantly expanding its community resources, which enable people to support each other in performing all functions of life and developing to their maximum potential. The purpose of this study was to investigate the health and environmental characteristics of a healthy city in the religious teachings. This is a discriptive study. Data were collected from the, verses and interpretations of the Holy Quran, the hadith books, and software's related to the religious teachings. Allah invites to the abode of peace and guides those who follow the right path.They shall have the abode of peace with their Lord; a good land and a forgiving Lord. Allah is pure and he likes purity and cleanliness. Therefore, be pure and clean, because he who is not pure can never enter paradise. God does not like corruption. The best place for habitation is where there is clean air, drinking water, and farming land. We place for the people of Saba the gardens on the right and the left of their abode as a sign; eat of the sustenance of your lord and give thanks to him. It calls you toward environmental sanitation: sweep your courtyard, and clean the streets in front of your houses and shops. You are prohibited from emptying waste water into the street, in the river, or under a fruit tree. Removeing a harmful thing from the way of people is also charity. Islam's concern and care for environmental cleanliness includes all aspects of the urban environment. Good hygiene and abstaining from polluting are religious duty and are rewarded by God. Islam__AWT_QUOTE__s teachings, natural laws, health principals, and social principals are factors, which play decisive roles in the forming of the city, and promoting health in the city.
