Title How to Convince a Sikh about Islam?

Question As-salamu `alaykum

Dear brother or sister,

I'm reading about Sikhism because I'm intending to help some Sikhs to convert to Islam. It's not an easy task, so would you please help me answering the following questions?

Was Guru Nanak a Muslim?

Is it true that the Sikh's holy book, the Adit, contains some ideas of Muslim and Hindu holy men or scholars?

Could you give me some information to be used with a Sikh by which I can convince him of the Qur'an and raise doubts about his own book?

Jazakum Allah khayrun

read the persons reply :x

From the foregoing, we understand the following:

Guru Nanak was a religious reformer at best; he was not the founder of any new religion.

Sikhism is the creation of the Gurus, particularly of Guru Gobind Singh, whose compositions and innovations form the content and the framework of the new religion.

The scripture of Sikhism is not any revelation from God but only the compositions of the Gurus as well as those of certain Muslim and Hindu mystics. For this reason, there is no meaning in talking about the authenticity of the book as a Divine Revelation. Because neither the book nor the authors claim it to have been revealed by God.

As Muslims, we can perform da`wah to the Sikhs, chiefly by appealing to their faith in the Oneness of God. We can tell them that Guru Nanak was most probably a Muslim when he died; the available evidence favors that conclusion. Anyway he did not try to replace Islam with a new religion; on the other hand, his utterances point to the fact that he certainly believed Islam to be the True Religion of God.

:roll: :roll:

and "We consider Sikhism as a tradition rather than a religion" :roll:

Its not their fault brother. It's our fault. They are not going to buy books or our books related to history. They get information from online. Now its our responsibilty to bring everything online.

After Guru Nanak’s death in September 1539, his Hindu followers thought him to be a Hindu and his Muslim followers thought him to be a Muslim. That is to say, both Muslims and Hindus viewed him from the perspective of their respective faiths.

It was the later disciples of Nanak who gave shape to a new religion, of which Nanak is considered the first Guru. In 1604, Arjan Dev (one of the ten Gurus) compiled the hymns of Guru Nanak along with the compositions of both Hindu and Muslim holy men, like Jaidev, Surdas, Sheikh Farid, and Kabir. The compiled book was enshrined by Arjan in the Golden Temple and was called the Adi Granth.

Hello Brother. Im a Sikh, my friend has tried to convert me to Islam and I have not done so. If ur ganna talk bout our Way of Life I suggest dat u read up fully first b4 passing ne false propoganda and not to replace falsehood with Truth. If u wanna find out about Guru Nanak Dev Ji life, I suggest u read his storys from Sikh Books and not websites. Guru Nanak said "Im am neither Hindu nor Muslman". And our holy Book was Revealed directly from Allah himself to Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

Learn Gurmuki and dont spread falsehood. I kno spreading falsehood in Islam is even anti-Islam.

But Allah is Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

It is Allah who can only pass Judgement.

Why would a SIkh want to convert to Sunni Islam?

First of all we SIkhs only consider Imam Ali as the real successor to the Prophet so if you're a Sunni: go home or become SHia.

If you're a Shia: why do you behave like a Sunni trying to convert eveyone? Really illogical of you.

If you want to become a real Muslim then read gurbani!!!

Its kind of ridiculous that muslims sites are allowing this type of propaganda and when people set up websites to evalulate their own religion then they call them "Anti-Muslim" and go to sound sleep.

Exactly!You get so called "Muslims" questioning and deriding other religions left right and centre.But when you get anyone questioning Islam or "Muslims" you are accused of insulting them or Mohammad.

"Muslims" are always on fire.Always have been.I'm sick of them. :evil:

1. To Mr SIngh: Sufis are Muslims and it's just the Wahabis (the site you indicated is wahabi) who don't accept them.

2. According to Bhai Mani Singh's Janamsakhi Guru Nanak clearly specified that is was Imam Ali who was the righteous successor of the Prophet (PBUH) and not Abu Bakr.

3. By "you" I meant the Sunni guy who wants to convert this SIkh to Islam.
