Sikhism And The Link To Abrahamic Tradation

Recommended Posts


"31) Doosrae mataa dae pustak, vidyaa parhni. Pur bhrosaa drirh Gurbani, Akal Purakh tae karnaa -

Study the books and knowledge of other faiths. But keep trust in Gurbani and Akal Purukh." Hukam of Guru Gobind Singh - http://www.info-sikh.com/Page52Hukams.html

Sikhism and its link to the traditions of the Hind (Hinduism) can be seen from this quote below;

hir jugu jugu Bgq aupwieAw pYj rKdw AwieAw rwm rwjy ]

har jug jug bhagath oupaaeiaa paij rakhadhaa aaeiaa raam raajae ||

In each and every age, He creates His devotees and preserves their honor, O Lord


hrxwKsu dustu hir mwirAw pRhlwdu qrwieAw ]

haranaakhas dhusatt har maariaa prehalaadh tharaaeiaa ||

The Lord killed the wicked Harnaakhash, and saved Prahlaad.

Sampooran Rehiras Sahib

Alike to this we can see references to the Abrahamic tradation such as Islam being seen in Guru Granth Sahib here;

ਦਾਸੁ ਕਬੀਰੁ ਕਹੈ ਸਮਝਾਇ ॥

Ḏās Kabīr kahai samjẖā▫e.

Slave Kabeer speaks and teaches:

and hundreds of thousands of prophets;

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang 1161

Guru Nanak is being predicted in Vedas 6000 years ago according to this http://www.earthportals.com/Portal_Messenger/nanak.html

Now Question is this if we see the tradation of Sikhism as the oldest tradation in the world before mainstream modern day Sikhism (

) who calls Khalsa the sanjha dharam of this world

Where does Sikhism fit in with Islam?

The prophet muhammad is talked about in Sri Dasam Granth http://www.sridasam.org/dasam?Action=Page&p=135&english=t&id=68437

"Then I created Muhammed, who was made the master of Arabia.26.

He started a religion and circumcised all the kings.

He caused all to utter his name and did not give True Name of the Lord with firmness to anyone.27.

Everyone placed his own interest first and foremost and did not comprehend the Supreme Brahman.

When I was busy in the austere devotion, the Lord called me and sent me to this world with the following words.28."

"Page 99, Line 1

Many Muhammads had been on the earth. They were born and then died in their own times. 27."

"Page 1289, Line 3

Ram, Muhammad, Krishna, Vishnu etc., All were destroyed by this sword of KAL; crores of measures, but without the devotion of One Lord, no one achieved redemption.5.79."

If one considers the qur'an to be a revelation of God what does it mean when Prophet muhammad is called the seal of the prophets which most Muslims translate is last final prophet apart from a few who say it means he is the prophet of grace.

Islam tells of a messiah, mediah or christ to come a redeemer or saviour which are attributes that belong to the Gurus, What is the connection between the traditions please can I have a peaceful answer not one full of hateful separatist interpretation.

And where would Jesus, Jesus, Joseph, Abraham fit in to Sikhism teachings?
