Sikhism and Shiaism

What are some of the similarities between Sikhism and Shiaism. Recently, a Shia shrine was allowed in east Punjab, and Shias built a Sikh shrine in southern Iraq to return the favor. So what exactly is the connection between Sikhism and Shiaism. Both religions are very similar. In fact, apart from different names and different language, they are virtually identical in philosophy.

Shias revere 12 imams, and Sikhs revere 10 gurus. Both regard their set of imams and gurus as infallible guides. Shias mourn the martyrdom of the third Imam Hussain, while Sikhs mourn the martyrdom of their fifth guru Arjun Dev. And of course both religions have a strong attachment to religious art and imagery. What are some other similarities?

Hello Ghulam ,

It is good to show the simliraty between religions , but maybe shia consider this as insult ( how come there is a similarity between Islam and Kufr ! ) . Where is the thara ( soil ) from thuraya (Pleiades ) ? Thara (soil ) is seikh and Thuraya (Pleiades ) is shiasm .

It is like if you ask a muslim Are you drunk ? It is insult to ask him this question .

However shias and sunnis have the right to make similarities between christianity or other religions and ancient mythilogia .

Therefore I invite myself and the other bro. and sis. from different religions to be humble to each other and no one is better than other save the taqwa .

I have nothing more to say .

A serious discussion regarding two or more schools of thought could only begin by the comparison of their Primary & secondary principles, which apparantly you are unaware of.

As for your comparison of Imams of Shias and Gurus of Sikhs, ofcourse leadership exists in many religions. The idea of infallible leadership in shia school of thought is backed by reasoning and references. Regarding mourning, it is an emotional behavriour of human beings. They mourn at the loss or irony of their loved ones. Regarding art and imagery, this is related to cultural heritage than the religion itself. The question is if a religion allows or disallows such practices on the basis of references and reasoning or if it only offers the mantra of "Kill the infidels" at all times.

On the contrary I think that Shiaism and very similar to Sikhism. Of course Shiaism is older than Sikhism, but probably Sikhism got many of its ideas from Shiaism. It's just interesting to see the similarities especially how Sikhs revere there gurus exactly how Shias revere the 12 imams.

Guru Nanak is believed to be a Muslim. He sat with the sufi and had Muslim mureeds.

Guru Nanak in Baghdad.

plate9.jpg

Translation“He acquired different sciences. In particular he acquired proficiency in Islamic lore, the interpretation of the Holy Quran, the knowledge of religious cults and Arabic and Persian literature. He made remarkable headway in these. He carried on a struggle to end oppression and repression that prevailed in different countries. He raised the banner of justice and destroyed untruth and hypocrisyl; so long as the weak did not obtain their right he stood by them and regarded the powerful who lost their head in their arrogance as dastardly. He was the best specimen of piety and hunger for travel.”\

He did Hajj in Mecca.

He stayed in Baghdad for 12 years.

He associated with sufis for 40 years and did Zhikr with them in this time period.

Also here is a Muslim version of Guru Nanak's image.

Guru Nanak was not a Muslim, but he made pilgrimages to Islamic shrines and disrespected them. He was a very disrespectful person to Islam, when he went to Makka Muazma shareef he placed his feet in the direction of the Qibla and offended all the Muslims:

Sikhism was an anti-Islamic cult from Day 1

Sikhs later turned against Islam so they have their own version of Guru Nanak.

The sikh version of Guru Nanak

had a successor, followed by 8 gurus

traveled 1000 km to show the Muslims that God is everywhere ironically you can't point your feet towards the Granth sahib to prove that either

introduced reincarnation to their religion

believe in cremation but didn't chose to offend the Muslims so he was raised up.

Never cut his hair although this was introduced by Guru Gobind Singh.

Argued with Bahlool about 7 skies being infinite although Hz Bahlool (ra) dates back to the time of Imam Jafar As Sadiq (as) time.

Had the Granth sahib with him in his travels. Yet his copy of the Quran is still preserved in the Ferozepore district in Punjab.

Found Sikhism yet his closest disciple Maradana remained Muslim.

You raised interesting point that Sikhs consider God to be everywhere so this is why Nanak put his feet toward Kaaba. There are several problem with this, first of all we Muslims don't believe Allah is inside the Kaaba, this is a misconception of Sikhs. The Kaaba is a holy shrine the first place of worship dedicated to Allah. It is disrespectful to place your feet in direction of Kaaba not because Allah is inside it, but because it is a holy place dedicated to the worship of Allah.

Also, you may know that Sikhs worship their book known as Granth. Sikhs do sajda to their book, sajda is an act of worship which is only dedicated for Allah Ta'ala. Sikhs do not even let others to touch their book, let alone place their feet in its direction. So Sikhs are the biggest hypocrites. They are also dirty people who do not even cut a single hair from their body, including their pubic hair, whereas in Islam you must remove your pubic hair it is part of taharat, which Sikhs have no understanding of, and why they smell very bad.

Indeed, Allah forbade us from insulting the idols of the disbelievers so that this would not lead to the idol worshippers insulting Allah. Allah Says: {And do not insult those who invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge.}[Quran 6:108].

Also in the Holy Quran Allah Says: {Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and kindly exhortation. Reason

with them in the most courteous manner. Your Lord knows best those who stray from His path and those who are rightly guided.}[Quran 16:25]

If you see a people who do not have the light of truth I ask you to follow the teachings of the Holy Quran which you claim to follow, and do not insult others but when you come upon them on the path of life to share with them the truth, lest you find your self on the Dayof Judgement the one who is lost, with no hope.

You come here claiming to be muslim, yet, I have not seen one word from you that a true follower of our Holy Prophet (pbuh) would speak to another, not one action that He (pbuh) would do in the cause of Islam, I ask you to be careful, and follow the words of the Quran, lest you find yourself on the Day of Judgement the one who is lost, and with no hope. May Allah guide you to all truth.

O you who believe, let not a people ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or call each other names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. And anyone who does not repent, then these are the transgressors. (49:11)

Also, there is no compulsion in those hadith regarding fitrah, I doubt you have read them, here's one from Bukhari:

Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 72 :: Hadith 779

Narrated Abu Huraira :

I heard the Prophet saying. "Five practices are characteristics of the Fitra: circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, cutting the moustaches short, clipping the nails, and depilating the hair of the armpits."

Of course, this is what the Qur'an has to say:

“And We have sent down to you the book with truth, authenticating what is present of the book and superceding it. So judge between them by what GOD Has sent down and do not follow their desires from what has come to you of the truth…” (5:48)

Also see (6:114, 6:19, 7:52, 16:89, 5:48, 4:105).

In-fact, when GOD speaks of His creation, He speaks of it as being ‘perfected’:

"He is the One who PERFECTED everything He created, and started the creation of the human from clay." (32/7)

Peace.

They are also dirty people who do not even cut a single hair from their body, including their pubic hair, whereas in Islam you must remove your pubic hair it is part of taharat, which Sikhs have no understanding of, and why they smell very bad.

As far i know cleanliness is part of the Sikh faith. If anyone who doesn't take showers he/she will smell bad. Therefore, it not Sikhism that teaches you to smell bad, its just people who don't take showers.

I must say I know a few Sikhs, and they were fastidiously clean. Cleanliness is a key Sikh concept as it is in Islam; a comb (kanga) is worn in the turban as one of the 5 Ks to remind the Sikh of this crucial concept (the five Ks represent monotheism, cleanliness, bravery, modesty and - as mentioned above - that God created humanity as he intended and so hair is left uncut). The hair and beard are to be carefully tended and bathing is obligatory... they're not dirty hippies!

With respect, although it's unhelpful to try to tell Sikhs that they are unclean or smelly, the practice of keeping uncut hair in the groin and underarm regions is inherently unhygienic as it creates a breeding ground for various organisms and, hence, disease.

With regard to the religion Sikhism, this is not a monotheistic religion (their 'gurus' are worshipped, literally, and they consider them to be God or gods), and the holy books of Sikh criticise the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). They aver that the Prophet failed in his mission to bring religion to humanity, so God had to send the Sikh 'gurus'.

Although I do agree cleanliness is a large part of Sikhism, as Cypress had touched on regarding the five Ks, the brother in the post above me raises a good point - keeping hair unshaven and uncut is not the most effective way to be clean. On the contrary it causes one to sweat a lot more, and hygienically speaking, long (and usually thick) hair is very difficult to keep clean.

Sikhism as a religion shares many qualities with Islam, and many would argue that Baba Guru Nanak was not really the starter of Sikhism, but rather a reformer or reviver of monotheism. Many have gone so far as to say that he may as well have been a Muslim: considering he had preformed Hajj, this means he must have been a Muslim to even enter Mecca, and then to preform the Muslim prayers and rituals. It is arguably the later Gurus that had implemented the traditions in what we now know as Sikhism.

Are you sure they even accept the Prophethood of Muhammed (pbuh)? They do not accept any of the Qur'an and Sunnah, and they even declare halal meats to be forbidden in their religion.

In those days, the rules to enter Mecca may not have been the same as they are today. In fact, I am pretty sure they were not.

Many respect him. But official recognition of our Holy Prophet is not relevant to their religion.

Baqar do you want me to write a refutation of the Sikh heresy in a separate thread? It seems to me that you have many illusions regarding Sikhism. I think there are many things you are not aware of. Maybe you and others need to have your eyes opened.

I was under the impression that Mecca became a "Muslim-only" city at the time of the first Caliphs. I could be wrong, but this is what I've learned.

You're absolutely right. They do not accept any of the Prophets, and their religion seems contrived to set itself up in opposition to Islam. They expressly forbid Islamic practices such as circumcision, the eating of 'halal' meat (i.e. they say what it permitted is forbidden) and the social and cultural practices of Muslim such as hukkah. As you say, they don't accept ANY of the Qur'an or the Sunnah. In my view the Sikh 'religion' is nothing but pure anti-Islam wearing Indian clothes. The whole raison d'etre of Sikhism seems to be enmity to Islam and the truth of Allah as transmitted by the final Prophet and expounded by his Ahl al-Bayt.

Make me a list of issues and questions you have and I shall discuss them all in a separate thread.

1. How Sikhism was formed ?

2. Muslim - Sikh relations in India ?

3. Common teachings ?

4. Why is Sikhism considered hostile to Islam ? In my personal experience, I found Sikhs very much impressed by our Imams, in particular Imam Ali and Imam Hussain.

5. Even today, some Sikhs show great respect for our Imams.

6. Even today, there are poets among Hindus and Sikhs writing poetry on Imam Ali and Imam Hussain.

7. My own conclusion is that Sikhs are not intrinsically hostile to Islam or o Muslims.

Regards

baqar

You raised interesting point that Sikhs consider God to be everywhere so this is why Nanak put his feet toward Kaaba. There are several problem with this, first of all we Muslims don't believe Allah is inside the Kaaba, this is a misconception of Sikhs. The Kaaba is a holy shrine the first place of worship dedicated to Allah. It is disrespectful to place your feet in direction of Kaaba not because Allah is inside it, but because it is a holy place dedicated to the worship of Allah.

Also, you may know that Sikhs worship their book known as Granth. Sikhs do sajda to their book, sajda is an act of worship which is only dedicated for Allah Ta'ala. Sikhs do not even let others to touch their book, let alone place their feet in its direction. So Sikhs are the biggest hypocrites. They are also dirty people who do not even cut a single hair from their body, including their pubic hair, whereas in Islam you must remove your pubic hair it is part of taharat, which Sikhs have no understanding of, and why they smell very bad.

My comments on the above; though this is not the main issue. however;

Brother you have misconception about placing the feet towards kaaba. You think that placing feet towards kaaba is not a good act. If it is not a good act then why it is allow to put when the person is very sick and cant stand and sit or put his face sideways.

the following is the fatwa to understand the concept a better way.

"If he is unable to perform the prayer on his side, then he prays lying flat with his feet towards the Qiblah, and it is preferable that he raise his head a little to direct it toward the Qiblah. If he is unable to point his feet toward the Qiblah, then he may pray however he is and he does not have to repeat the prayer."

http://abdurrahman.org/tahara/taharasick.html

Culturally we do think that placing our feet towards kaaba is not a good act. but actually the concept is opposite to it.

and Prayer (salah) is n aact which best discribes the actions of Humanbeing.

1 Sihkism is interesting.

2 Contrasting Shism with Sihkism seems disrespectful.

3 Contrasting Shism with Sihkism seems very lulz.

4 Calling Sihks dirty seems very disrepectful.

5 Calling Sihks dirty seems very lulz.

Sir enshallah, you need to sit down and think about and balance your desire for lulz and your desire to be a good respectable Muslim.

What are some of the similarities between Sikhism and Shiaism. Recently, a Shia shrine was allowed in east Punjab, and Shias built a Sikh shrine in southern Iraq to return the favor. So what exactly is the connection between Sikhism and Shiaism. Both religions are very similar. In fact, apart from different names and different language, they are virtually identical in philosophy.

Shias revere 12 imams, and Sikhs revere 10 gurus. Both regard their set of imams and gurus as infallible guides. Shias mourn the martyrdom of the third Imam Hussain, while Sikhs mourn the martyrdom of their fifth guru Arjun Dev. And of course both religions have a strong attachment to religious art and imagery. What are some other similarities?

Salaam brother,no sikhism and shiism do not have much in common,they do not mourn the death of Guru Arjun Dev,nor do they consider there Guru's to be infallible of any sort,infact sikhism does not even have a concept of 3sma,as for the art an imagery,Due to the fact that Sikhs are in India and in India they like to connect themselves more with the Hindue majority rather then the muslims,the sikhs emphasis Highly on Pictures,to the point of worship(Wich is suppose to be forbidden in sikhism,but nevertheless practiced)..........and no shiism does not emphasis on pictures due to the Maraja's opinions about pictures, I USE TO BE SIKH,and to tell u the truth when i was sunni i use to think that sikhism and shiism had much in common,after becoming Shia and understanding Shi'ite conception and after being in a year of Hawza and comparing it to sikhism,they actually had NOTHING IN COMMON,in fact sikhism has much in common with sunni sufism rather then shiism.Though i do not know but to a Sikh turned muslim it would seem quite likely to think that Guru Nanak might have been muslim and either this was forgotten through the fold of time or he never openly announced it but....Allah Hu 3aalim right,and theirs not much of a point of delving on it :D:D

I highly doubt you were ever a Sunni Muslim. You were raised as a Sikh, thus when you converted to "Islam" you converted to a version of Islam which is very close to your religion. Actually, to tell you the cold truth, you never converted to Islam, you just converted from one type of kufr to another.

Sikhism has nothing to do with Sufism. In fact, do you know it was Mujaddid Alf Thani, Ahmad Sirhindi ÑÍãÉ Çááå Úáíå the founder of the Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi Sufi silsila and a great wali, regarded as the reformer of the second millenium, who encouraged the Mughal king to execute the Sikh guru, and to deal harshly with the Sikhs, who at that time were openly rebelling against the Mughal government.

Just compare Shiaism to Sikhism, its basically the same thing when it comes down to it. Since you were a Sikh you probably know that Sikhism is not based on just the teachings of Nanak. The other 9 gurus are "co-founders" of the Sikh religion, because the Sikh religion kept on evolving until the last living guru, when the religion was completed.

In the same way, Shiaism does not regard Prophet Muhammad Õáì Çááå Úáíå Óáã as the sole authority for Islam. Shias regard their 12 imams as "co-founders" of Islam. Just go read the main Shia book "Usool-e-Kafi". They say this is a book of hadeeth, I wander than why are most of the "hadeeth" in this book sayings of their imams, and why are there so few saying of Rasoolullah Õáì Çááå Úáíå Óáã in that book?

Its quite obvious. Despite Shia claims to be Muslims, they obviously have more attachment to their 12 Imams than to the Prophet himself. Most of their hadeeth are sayings of the 12 Imams, very few sayings from Prophet himself are mentioned in their books. Look how much a big deal they make out of the martyrdom of Imam Hussain, yet Shias believe that Prophet Õáì Çááå Úáíå Óáã was killed by his wife (Maaz Allah), so why don't they mark the martyrdom of the Prophet with as much enthusiasm and passion as they mark the martyrdom of Hussain? Why dont they celebrate the birthday of Prophet with as much passion as on 10th of Ashura?

And just like Sikhism, Shiaism is a dead religion. Sikhism is only found in Punjab India, 99% of Sikhs are Punjabi. And Shiaism is basically just in Iran and Iraq, but you see all the people who are accepting Islam, white and black people, they are never becoming into Shia. Shia religion is dying out just like Sikh religion. The true religion will never die out, it will continue to spread to the four corners of the Earth like prophecised in Qur'an Majeed.

Ghulam Nabi, please stop spouting absolute rubbish unless you're willing to provide references and some semblance of 'proof' (even if only it's 'sunni' proof) to back up your spillage.

And if you label yourself a sufi I'm sorry to break it to you but both mainstream shiah and sunni consider you innovators and outside the fold of Islam so don't be passing judgement so quickly on others you whirling dervish.

Lastly, your sig; what a joke! I've already asked you but I'll ask yet again; what sunni madhab are you referring to? There are at least 4 popular sunni madhabs derived from the 4 popular Imams of jurisprudence and countless other lesser ones - so which sunni madhab are you referring to?

Irony? Seeing as the vast majority of shiah are ithna-asheri (12ers) there are possibly more people of the Jafari madhab in the world than there are of any single sunni madhab so stop lying about numbers and geography before you end up embarassing yourself any further.

As was said by the late and great Maulana Najafi sahib (apologies for the Punjabi transliteration) "Bakri Umari noo cut da ai, Umari Ghani noo cut da ai, Ghani Yazidi noo cut da ai, Yazidi Qadiri noo cut da ai...."

Apologies for all to go off topic but this imbecile started it.

ALI
