    Da'wah to a Sikh

    Report bad ads?

    Assalamualaikum!

    Does anbody here have any tips as to how to give da'wah to a sikh?
    Or is anyone here a revert from Sikhism?
    Or does anyone know of any such contradictions or scientific errors in the Sikh teachings?
    Is there any good site for these questions if none of you know the answer?

    Basically i have a sikh friend who recently has taken a real disliking towards Islam when he found out according to Islam, only Muslims go to heaven and all other followers of other religions go to hell. He thinks all religions are right and basically they are all a different form of discipline, for example some people pray 5 times a day to discipline themselves and be good people, some people go to church, some people grow their hair long like sikhs. But basically all are different paths to God

    The basic argument i have agaisnt HIS views are, that Sikhism is contradicting itself big time. How can all religions be right, seeing as religions like Christianity Judaism and Islam all believe the whole purpose of their life revolves round the fact we will e going to heaven/hell, whilst religions like Sikhsim n Hinduism believe in reincarnation
    Christianity believes Jesus is Son of God, whilst Islam emphatically says the oppisite, saing it is blasphemous to say this
    Hinduism says there are lots of Gods and for example Judaism says theres one God. How can all these religions be right, its as if your saying God said one thing to one set of epople, and said something totall different to another set, ie saying he is lieing and that just can't be

    Anyway these are my views regarding his views, but i'm not too sure if these are the correct Sikh beliefs
    Please can someone comment or help me on this topic, or provide a decent site about this

    Re: Da'wah to a Sikh



    I'm not in the best position to give specific advice because I'm not a scholar and I've never been in that position. However, Muslims are taught to be tolerant of other faiths.

    In my humble view, people are free to follow whatever they choose. I'm fortunate to be Muslim and man do I know it. :brother:

    Re: Da'wah to a Sikh

    Moss,
    In your Dawah you should focus on explaining Islam rather than attacking other religions via contradictions, errors is scriptures etc. You should focus on the beauty of Islam.

    However, there is the following link with some info:
    http://www.irf.net/irf/comparativere...wahtosikhs.htm

    This is illogical, only one path can be correct, as I explained here:
    http://www.islamicboard.com/showpost...4&postcount=49

    How can all these religions be right, its as if your saying God said one thing to one set of epople, and said something totall different to another set, ie saying he is lieing and that just can't be
    you're absoloutely correct.

    To learn about sikhism, I suggest looking up Sikhism at Wikipedia.

    Da'wah to a Sikh

    The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
    "Surely I was sent to perfect the qualities of righteous character" [Musnad Ahmad, Muwatta Mâlik]

    There is a good lecture about this by Bilal Philips on www.lightuponlight.com called "The way is one"

    Re: Da'wah to a Sikh

    No need to insult his religion just explain to him the beleifs in Islam and the purpose of them.

    Sûrah al An'am 6:109
    "Revile not those unto whom they pray besides Allah lest they wrongfully revile Allah through ignorance. Thus unto every nation have We made their deeds seem fair. Then unto their Lord is their return, and He will tell them what they used to do."


    Some followers of Guru Nanak after his death claimed him to be muslim, others claimed him to be a hindu and a new religion of Sikhism was founded through his teachings, inshallah the following two articles below will give you some insight into it:

    This is true; Sikhism accepts the facts that there are many paths to God and it regards itself as a simple path. This is shown when Guru Nanak went to Mecca and the Qazis and the Mullas crowded around the Guru and asked "Who is the superior of the two, the Hindu or the Muslim?" The Guru replied,"Without good deeds, both will repent. The superiority lies in deeds and not in mere creeds." This shows that a good Hindu or a good Muslim would be rewarded in the court of God.

    Actually the Guru Granth Sahib Ji is surprisingly coherant with scientific facts.
    Sikhs believe that God created the whole universe. Earth while being in the universe is a creation of God and all the life on earth is a creation of God. It does not matter to a Sikh whether earth was created in seven days or it evolved in 4 billion years. If the earth was created then God created the earth and if the earth was evolved then God created the evolution of the earth. In addition, Guru Granth Sahib (The Holy Scripture of Sikhs) states remarkable information about the universe, galaxies, stars, planets and the moons. None of the information written in the scripture contradicts with the scientific facts. Furthermore, nothing in Guru Granth Sahib can be disproved with the help of science. However, scientific facts support the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Guru Nanak debated alot with his Muslim companions and in Nanak's time, Baghdad was a centre of Muslim culture - it was home to pirs and sufi fakirs. Guru Nanak stayed in Baghdad for four months and interacted with the holy men there, one of whom was Bahlol. Guru Nanak sang of the infinity of God and His infinite creation. Bahlol said that the Qur'an had mentioned seven earths and seven heavens only. Guru Nanak urged that the universe was not confined to seven earths and seven heavens but had millions and millions of planets and worlds, these facts were scientifically supported many hundreds of years later by western scientists.

    Why are you attacking our faith?? Would you like it if Sikhs done the same?? Suppose not. Research Sikhi before you start making falsifying claims of contradiction.

    Many people convert from different faiths canada is quite a poular destination where many muslim girls get hitched to sikhs and they become sikhs too, there an actual discussion on the internet I think its called asiapacific.net and anyways it was basically pakistanis who had gone abroad and become sikhs cos after partition they were forced to embrace islam but the sikh roots were too strong so with gurus kirpa they found their way back to their true home, i suppose thats the way it goes in life,

    anyways enjoy your jalibees,

    Your friend obviously had very little gian (knowledge) on Sikhi

    You mean in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang.141

    सलोकु मः १ ॥
    salok mehlaa 1.
    Shalok, First Mehl:


    ਮੁਸਲਮਾਣੁ ਕਹਾਵਣੁ ਮੁਸਕਲੁ ਜਾ ਹੋਇ ਤਾ ਮੁਸਲਮਾਣੁ ਕਹਾਵੈ ॥
    मुसलमाणु कहावणु मुसकलु जा होइ ता मुसलमाणु कहावै ॥
    musalmaan kahaavan muskal jaa ho-ay taa musalmaan kahaavai.
    It is difficult to be called a Muslim; if one is truly a Muslim, then he may be called one.


    ਅਵਲਿ ਅਉਲਿ ਦੀਨੁ ਕਰਿ ਮਿਠਾ ਮਸਕਲ ਮਾਨਾ ਮਾਲੁ ਮੁਸਾਵੈ ॥
    अवलि अउलि दीनु करि मिठा मसकल माना मालु मुसावै ॥
    aval a-ul deen kar mithaa maskal maanaa maal musaavai.
    First, let him savor the religion of the Prophet as sweet; then, let his pride of his possessions be scraped away.


    ਹੋਇ ਮੁਸਲਿਮੁ ਦੀਨ ਮੁਹਾਣੈ ਮਰਣ ਜੀਵਣ ਕਾ ਭਰਮੁ ਚੁਕਾਵੈ ॥
    होइ मुसलिमु दीन मुहाणै मरण जीवण का भरमु चुकावै ॥
    ho-ay muslim deen muhaanai maran jeevan kaa bharam chukhaavai.
    Becoming a true Muslim, a disciple of the faith of Mohammed, let him put aside the delusion of death and life.


    ਰਬ ਕੀ ਰਜਾਇ ਮੰਨੇ ਸਿਰ ਉਪਰਿ ਕਰਤਾ ਮੰਨੇ ਆਪੁ ਗਵਾਵੈ ॥
    रब की रजाइ मंने सिर उपरि करता मंने आपु गवावै ॥
    rab kee rajaa-ay mannay sir upar kartaa mannay aap gavaavai.
    As he submits to God's Will, and surrenders to the Creator, he is rid of selfishness and conceit.


    ਤਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਰਬ ਜੀਆ ਮਿਹਰੰਮਤਿ ਹੋਇ ਤ ਮੁਸਲਮਾਣੁ ਕਹਾਵੈ ॥੧॥
    तउ नानक सरब जीआ मिहरमति होइ त मुसलमाणु कहावै ॥१॥
    ta-o naanak sarab jee-aa mihramat ho-ay ta musalmaan kahaavai. ||1||
    And when, O Nanak, he is merciful to all beings, only then shall he be called a Muslim. ||1||

    As for any suggestion of Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj being Muslim or performing Hajj or even Hindu.

    Qazi and maulvis got together and began discussing religion.
    A great fantasy has been created and no one could understood its mystery.
    They asked Baba Nanak to open and search in his book whether Hindu is great or the Muslim.
    Baba replied to the pilgrim hajis, that, without good deeds both will have to weep and wail.
    Only by being a Hindu or a Muslim one can not get accepted in the court of the Lord.
    As the colour of safflower is impermanent and is washed away in water, likewise the colours of religiosity are also temporary.
    (Followers of both the religions) In their expositions, denounce Ram and Rahim.
    The whole of the world is following the ways of Satan.

    But Guru Nanak was not a Muslim, at Mecca the Qazis and the Mullas crowded around the Guru and asked whether he was a Muslim or a Hindu? The Guru replied that he was neither of the two. Plus he also made many visits to important Hindu places of worship to spread his message.

    Re: Da'wah to a Sikh

    And to mention Hindu places

    GURU NANAK AT HARDWAR

    Hardwar is one of the Hindu pilgrimage places on the bank of river Ganges. It was a Baisakhi day and the pilgrims got up early in the morning and bathed in the river. As the sun came out, they started throwing water towards the sun. When Guru Nanak asked them as to what they were doing, one priest replied,"We are offering water to our dead ancestors in the region of Sun to quench their thirst."

    Upon this the Guru started throwing water towards the west. The pilgrims laughed and asked what he was doing. The Guru replied,"I am watering my fields in my village in the Punjab." The priest asked,"How can your water reach such a distance?" The Guru retorted,"How far your ancestors are from here?" One of them replied,"in the other world."

    The Guru stated,"If the water cannot reach my fields which are about four hundred miles away from here, how can your water reach your ancestors who are not even on this earth?" The crowd stood in dumb realization. The Guru preached against superstitions and false rituals, worship of gods and goddesses, penances and renunciation. He stressed that only One God, the Formless, was to be glorified. In this way he showed the path of truth and enlightenment. There is a Gurdwara called Nanakwara in Hardwar on the bank of the river Ganges where the Guru had stayed.
