This information can be obtained from Audit, if you have it enabled to capture Reads.

There's guidance on that here;

Thank you Jamie,
If the Audit  not enabled ? by enabling the Audit will I be able to get history form that ? ie look up the record before the enabling date ?(I guess that is not possible ?) so in this scenario can I still get the same info from the IIS logs ? and how.
appreciate your help .

I'm afraid you're right that if audit wasn't already enabled you won't get any information from before that time.

IIS logs are your next line of investigation, as per this thread;

There are tools to help, as they mention three possibilities there.

Thank you Jamie, just to verify the last bit of my concern, will I be able to track what document have been deleted, opened, edited from the IIS logs?.

much appreciated

I cannot vouch for the exact information that will have been captured. I'd be most nervous about deleted items.

Have you checked the recycle bins in SharePoint?

in my environment it is fine for the user to delete documents that is not a big deal, what is matter is the report to show what documents have been deleted, edited and so on, which I am trying to find out if that could be done using IIS logs ? as the audit reporting was not turned on .

I'm pretty sure you can get the view and edit from IIS using the tools mentioned in that thread. Not so sure about delete, however looking in the recycle bins you have the name of the person who deleted the file listed in there, and could use that to search for the user in question.
