Are Sikhs Muslims

Recommended Posts

Why do many people say Sikhism is a "combination of Islam and Hindism"to be blunt, this is condescending,  I am non muslim and I can just as ignorantly say "Islam is a combination of Judiasm and Christianity" considering they're all Abrahamic religions. Lastly, in my opinion if my faith be compared to another faith, I'd rather it be Islam, Jewish religion is built on segregation just like Hindu(Brahmins, which is thehighest caste and if you're not a BrAhman in Hindus you're considered not hindu"

Probably because Sikhism shares its monotheism with Islam and was born in a land that was predominantly Hindu..

No, they are not Muslims. The Guru Granth Sahib was written after Islam, hence we consider it to be false.

Guru Nanak was recorded as saying this:

Quote

"There is neither Hindu nor Mussulman (Muslim), but only man. So whose path shall I follow? I shall follow God's path. God is neither Hindu nor Mussulman and the path which I follow is God's."

^ Then how can the followers of the Gurus be considered Muslim?

no, anyone who takes the shahada is a muslim. sikhs do not accept the holy prophet (S) as allahs final and greatest prophet, so cannot fall under the banner of islam. 

they take elements of islamic message like monotheism, and bits and parts of the quran in their own holy book, but this isnt enough to be considered islam (or even ahl e kitaab like jews and christians)

we need to make clear that this is no insult to sikhs, they are not najis or evil or bad. we do not have any right to oppress them or mock them or steal their rights. they're humans like everyone else, and must be treated with dignity and respect that all people deserve. call them whatever they want but not muslims because thats just not true. if I told you all I am an ostrich, that doesnt make it true does it

And, I would like to add that they are in general very supportive of Muslims in the West. They have also been the victims of Islamophobia.

I agree.

They may not be Muslims or Hindus but their religion teaches ONLY good things.

They believe in reincarnation, so I don't think they have anything to do with Islam.

:salam:

I have sunni sufi friends who believe in reincarnation. From a well establishhed North African tariqa.

    • Salam. Please read this and ponder and think about it. Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى wouldn't just make you wear a cloth over your head for no reason, he would obviously do it for you to benefit from it.
    • Stay at home and pray for her. You will really love the outcome of this, trust me.
    • “O Muhammad ask them about the town which stood by the sea; when they exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, when their fish came to them on the day of their Sabbath on the surface of the sea, and on the day on which they do not keep the Sabbath, they did not came to them We try them because they transgressed.” (7:163) “And when a party of them said, why do you admonish a people whom Allah would destroy and whom Allah would chastise with a severe chastisement? They said, to be free from blame before your Lord and that happily they may guard (against evil)” (7:164) “So when they neglected what they had been reminded of, we delivered those who forbade evil and we overtook those who were unjust with an evil chastisement.” “Therefore when they revoltingly persisted in what they had been forbidden, we said to them; Be (as) apes, despised and hated. (7:165)
    • Salam Alaikum, The knowledgeable scholar I asked (who has studied for over 45 years) has said that this dream means your nephew is receiving blessings and barakah. When the members of ahlulbayt (a.s) were born, their parents, or rasulullah (saww) would shave their head and donate silver to charity as the same weight as their hair.. This is a good sign from your nephew and means Allah will bless him. Salam  
    • If a female is wearing a dress, why exactly does she need to cover a portion of the chest, while its being covered?. Unless the dress style is and was different to what we are comprehending or is the extra layer needed to not show form. the objective of covering is to reduce the showing of skin. Hair is a beautification, which women enjoy in designing it while it also beautifies the females appeal. Women also can use their hair to flirt with or give away signs with it, such as playing with their hair. Over all, consider the covering as a reductive method in inducing the conditions of possible distractions that can lead to sin, according to religious law. Now ofcourse, in regards to society or social arenas, behavior is depended on both the genders and the virility  of both. unfortunatley one should also focus it on from genetics, good looking sexes generally break the boundaries more in regards to appearance, where as those without, exaggerate it to compete with the gifted ones. Men will always look at the gifted and we assume, the law wants to curb the prejudice of beauty. One could question, why not just design females bald, it would simplify the whole process or reduce the desire in men for female hair styles....
