Taking into consideration the sun orientation during high summer and deep winter seasons, masjid is strategically formed so heat gain and glare are mitigated when sunlight is excessive.

In the case of masjid Imam Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab, around 157 circular multi-layered brass chandeliers of different size are hanged on the rise of 14 meters, used to lit and adorn the prayer hall, corridors and hallways. The largest chandelier is raised up to 7 meters from its base to the suspension point. The lighting is controlled through automatic system commensurate with the amount of sunlight within different times of the day; accordingly, artificial lighting is maximized when the amount of natural light entering the prayer hall through the openings is minimal. The lights of the masjid have maintained a tradition of changing color when celebrating different religious occasions throughout the year such as Eids and Ramadan. The external car parking lights up at night by 1816 short stone light poles that were specially manufactured to fit the pavement basalt stone material. Additionally, 120 specially designed stone terraces containing lighting equipment are spread all around to light up the outer yard, along with the traditionally designed lamps on the edge of the walls. The masjid looks histrionic, dramatic and impressively lit at night using the intelligent lighting system designed to portray the architectural and aesthetic value of the masjid thanks to the hidden lighting system, the indirect lighting, and the LED. The new BAS (Building Automation System) is integrated to adjust and monitor air conditioning, firefighting, sound, lighting and broadcasting systems.
