    Hello there. I asked a question on another thread concerning alleged prophecies predicting the coming of Guru Nanak. There's been no response to it yet. I was wondering if the exact references could be verified. I have another question. What were proper religious faiths, if any, before Nanak? However old one thinks the earth is, did God in Sikh theology reveal himself through a prophet or scriptures before Guru Nanak? Thanks for any help.

    As per Sanatan Sikhs(Sikhs following the idealogy that Gurmat(Sikhism) was here since the world came into being) Holy Vedas,Holy Bible and Holy Kuran are books from God.

    For them you can visit www.sarbloh.info


    Coming for the views of Das or any other Sikh likie him even in Guru Granth Sahib ji there are verses from holy men who were not Sikh and were before First Master Shri Guru Nanakdev Sahib Ji. And those verse are considered as delvered by God.

    Guru Granth Sahib ji state that God since ages have created devotees and have proteected there respect.

    in the nutshell Sikhism is not anti to faith before it but it is complemewntory to them. Like thoery of say Phythogoras was made in remote past.

    While demovier and present day mathmaticians have made very advances theroies which are not anti to pythagour but complemtory.

    Had there been no misinterpetations being done by eveil in acceint scritpure and was well then What was the reason of Guru to be sent on earth by Akal(God of Sikhs).

    As per Gurmat regarding revalations.

    Sabhe Ghat Ram Bole ie in all atoms does God(Absorbed in there) Speaks(ie acts).

    So in the faith where God is omni observed it is unlikly to see for go after revalations only by supernatural ways.

    Guru nanak Ji sys:

    AAd SACH, JUgaad SACH,Nanak Hosee Bhee SACH...

    SACH meaning GOD... and HE WAS BEFORE, He IS NOW..and HE will be ALWAYS...

    I think this answers your question.

    Many paths lead up the Mountain..but the objective is the SAME PEAK...Sikhism is simply the Latest, the fastest, the most complete way up to the peak. This in no way "denies/denigrates/disallows/the other paths... Sikhe/Gurmatt of the Hosue of Nanak...is INCLUSIVE..not EXCLUSIVE...it seeks to INCLUDE all others and NOT push them away..as in " I AM THE ONLY WAY"..

    Dear Jarnail Singhji,

    Thanks for the wonderful and heartening post.

    I am not a punjabi, not a practicing sikh. But I love the gurus. I learn from them.

    regards

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!
