53 Build Ye Houses Of Worship Throughout The Lands #31






The Baha'i House of Worship is dedicated to the praise of God. The House
of Worship forms the central edifice of the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar (the
Dawning-place of the Praise of God), a complex which, as it unfolds in the
future, will comprise in addition to the House of Worship a number of
dependencies dedicated to social, humanitarian, educational, and
scientific pursuits. 'Abdu'l-Baha describes the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar as
one of the most vital institutions in the world, and Shoghi Effendi
indicates that it exemplifies in tangible form the integration of Baha'i
worship and service. Anticipating the future development of this
institution, Shoghi Effendi envisages that the House of Worship and its
dependencies shall afford relief to the suffering, sustenance to the
poor, shelter to the wayfarer, solace to the bereaved, and education to
the ignorant. In the future, Baha'i Houses of Worship will be constructed
in every town and village.
