The term Haziratu'l-Quds (Arabic, sacred fold) or Bahá'í centre refers to national, regional and local Bahá'í administrative centres.[1]

Shoghi Effendi, the head of the Bahá'í Faith in the first half of the 20th century, wrote that the Haziratu'l-Quds should include the secretariat, treasury, archives, library, publishing office, assembly hall, council chamber and the pilgrims' hostel. He also stated that its functions would be complementary to those of the Bahá'í House of Worship, and that it would be desirable if both these buildings would be on the same site.[1][2]
