Baha’is do all the usual things in their lives – work, study, spend time with their families and friends. 

The Baha’i Faith has no clergy and no formal worship schedule but nevertheless each Baha’i prays daily and groups of Baha’is often gather with their friends – Baha’i and non-Baha’i – to pray together. 

Baha’is work hard at trying to achieve a dynamic coherence between the material and the spiritual in their lives and therefore don’t see see prayer as separate from everything else but rather as an important factor in everything they do.  

“Work done in the spirit of service is the highest form of worship.”


Many Baha’is also spend time working with like-minded people in their neighbourhoods and towns on community building projects.  Some of the projects in which Baha’is take part are organised and run by non-Baha’i organisations.  Others are sponsored by local Baha’i communities.  Most notable amongst Baha’i sponsored actives are Children’s Classes, Junior Youth Groups, Study Circles and Devotional Meetings.

“That one indeed is a man who, today, dedicateth himself to the service of the entire human race. “
