    hindus claimed gurunanak to be hindu.muslims claimed him to be muslim.

    just a question in mind why do sikhs use om?

    if sikhism is an enitity in itself.it has nothing to with islam or hinduism.

    Sikhs don't use Om. Where did you read that?

    Risky ji

    Thank you for starting a new thread.

    To my knowledge, Sikhs do not use the word/sound "Om".

    There is a similar sounding word in the Sikh symbol Ik Onkar

    You can see from the spelling of the second word above, the 'On' in 'Onkar' is spelled O-A-n. There is no 'm'.

    Ik Onkar is a unique Sikh symbol bearing no relation to "Om".

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
