The design supports a particular understanding of the visual accordance with data of the hadith environment. Balance to the visual design can build a good human perceptual system to understand the concepts and interpret information more easily and accurately. The findings of the study show the good interpretation and the high score of respondents' achievement toward using the application. This result indicates that the contribution of visual perception theory as the design of the IV application can create a better visual perception and enhance the quality and quantity of the information.
