A message to Muslims., From Guru Arjan Sahib


Recommended Posts

I am taking 2 posts from sikhsangat. one the actual bani, and secondly, the response by a member of the forum....this is the type of acceptance guruji wanted us to AT LEAST practice....well everything except the "we shouldn't support them"...in essence, they are practicing their guru's hukam (as per our thought)...so why shouldn't we support them???..

That like all others is an amazing Shabad....

Nowhere does Guru Ji hate or dislike Musalmaan...instead Guru Ji helps them in understanding their religion...

Instead, so much of todays youth 'hates' Muslims, we should learn from Guru Ji and understand them not nesseccarily support them or become Muslims ourselves... but learn to love every religion of God.

There may be some fanatical so called Islamic groups who go around forcefully converting people...those people i say they are not Muslims. Guru Ji has shown us what a true Muslim should be and believe me there are some and are so devoted to God, that i respect them so much.

But do not forget, it is all of us who have these problems and go against God's wishes, as so much Bani says.

Lets keep trying hard to keep our hearts pure and our minds focussed on Akal Purukh.

If we can do that then we can conquer anything.

Bhul Chuk Maaf!
