Bahá’í Houses of Worship are open to people of all faiths – or of no particular faith. The name used in the Bahá’í writings for Houses of Worship is Mashriqu’l-Adhkár (Dawning-place of the Remembrance of God) and the services focus only on the worship of God.
There are no collections and no sermons in the Temple, only the Word of God is uttered along with readings from all the Holy Writings of the earth. The only instrument used in the Temple is the human voice, and the choir in any Bahá’í House of Worship sings without instrumental accompaniment. As the Bahá’í Faith has no priesthood, ordinary members of the community; men and women, adults and children read the texts.
