This may be a strange question.......


Recommended Posts

Hello all

i am fairly new in appreciating our beautiful religion and i had a question, i am really finding the Sukhmani Shaib prayer so enchanting i want to learn the english translation however i am working full time and in order for me to fully understand i would have to read the trasnslation at work now if i were to print out the translation would i have to remove my shoes and cover my head while i am learning the translation??? since i am printing out words from the Granth Sahib?

i hope i am not offending anyone i am just not sure. :oops:

on this note, the head is meant to be covered all hte time for a sikh. not just reading bani etc. this ritual has crept in because sikhs dont keep their hair covered always, so nowadays only cover in gurdwara, etc. im sure u know the rehitnamas so i cant be bothered to post them

Moderator note: Try to go with topic. Don't just assume that everyone is here baptized or with hair. This forum is universal, and everyone is welcome to join if they have desire to learn about Sikhism. We want to inspire them so they can come back to Sikhism and live with it. So, for future try to go with the topic and refrain yourself from giving advices without knowing the real situations

Please do cover your head (hat will do) 8)

jee i don't think sikhs are supposed to wear hats...it was written in a hukamnama and i believe somewhere in bani it also says bad stuff about wearing hats.. i know for sure it was said in a hukamnama though that we're supposed to follow.. if anyone caers to know ill look for it and find it

RK,

I agree with you that baptised sikh shouldnt be wearing hat.. But once again he is not baptised though he is learning and top of that he got his hair cut. I dont see much big of deal between wearing a hat or wearing bandana???

Hat and Bandana both cover ur head for sign of respect. dont they?
