Very informative post, sorry i have checked late n for commenting late here, i had too much work in office n got too much tired when i came back.

by reading ur post i found some similarities between Sikhism n Islam i would like to share with you n all who check it.


Both religions preach only one God, V Muslims believe in one Allah Alhamdulilah n you told sikh also has been preached to worship one God

On these missions Guru ji spread the message of one god.

Say, "He is Allah , [who is] One, Allah , the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is born, Nor is there to Him any equivalent." (Surah Ikhlas verse 1-4)

He asks all humans to look up to just God and no one else

Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah , Lord of the worlds. No partner has He. And this I have been commanded, and I am the first [among you] of the Muslims." (Surah An'am 162-163)

Put away thy pride.

Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler, and those whom your right hands possess. Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self-deluding and boastful. (Surah Nisa verse 36)


Both religions tells that all humans are equal and no one is better than other (in Islam only that one is honorable near to Allah who is righteous)

He followed Path of humanity and taught the world about loving every fellow human being without looking at his/her caste, gender, faith or nationality

To him, there are no barriers of race, class, caste, creed or color which check the progress of any in reaching the goal.

Remember the essence of religion

Is meekness and sympathy,
Not fine clothes,
Not long prayers,

O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. (surah Hujrat verse 13)

Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) said in his last sermon on Hajj

O' People! Listen to my words, for I do not know whether we shall ever
meet again and perform Hajj after this year. O' Ye people! Allah says, O'
people We created you from one male and one female and made you into
tribes and nations, so as to be known to one another. Verily in the sight
of Allah, the most honoured amongst you is the one who is most
God-fearing. There is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab and for a
non-Arab over an Arab, nor for the white over the black nor for the black
over the white except in God-conciousness.

All mankind is the progeny of Adam and Adam was fashioned out of clay.
Behold; every claim of privilage whether that of blood or property, is
under my heels except that of the custody of the Ka'bah and supplying of
water to the pilgrims, O' people of Quraish, don't appear (on the Day of
Judgement) with the burden of this world around your necks, whereas other
people may appear (before the Lord) with the rewards of the hereafter. In
that case I shall avail you naught against Allah.  (Fath ulbari, Part 12, page 336-337)

Not the Yogi's garb and ashes,
Not the blowing of the horns,
Not the shaven head,

Not recitations and torturing,
Not the ascetic way,

But a life of goodness and purity,

Amid the world's temptations.

Leaving the world n torturing ourself is not allowed in islam, v have also been told to live in the world with the given rules of Islam.

He taught everyone that God is neither Hindu nor Mussulman and the path which I follow is God's

He was right God can neither be a Hindu as the original definition of Hind means a person who lives in subcontinent. For ref check the following link.

http://www.hinduwebsite.com/hinduism/h_meaning.asp

nor he can be a Muslim coz a Muslim means the one who submit his/her will to Allah the one who is the most obedient to Allah and follows Allah's path so definitely Allah can't be a Muslim coz he can never submit his will to anyone as he is the Almighty creator for all of us, this earth n heaven n every thing between.


PS: Islam preached all about humanity and worshiping one God,  around 1432 years before.

PSS: the wording in Green is the original Quotation by TM, Blue is mine n the maroon are the references from Original Islamic sources.

Nice post hukshila. Ofcourse there are similarities bitweeen Sikhism and Islam.
Guru Nanak Dev ji spent lot of his quality time in meetings and discussions with Hundu religious leaders, Pundits, Sidhs, Shankracharias and with Muslim Faquirs, Sufis and Aulias. He spent 24 years of his life in travelling in all four directions - east to Burma, Thialand, Sumatra, Bangal, Puri, Oriisa.  North to China, Tashkand, Sumair Parvat, mansrover, Badrinath, kedarnath. West to Mecca, Bagdad, Vatican/Italy, Iran, Afganistan. South to Srilanka, Karela, Bidar etc.
here is what I found on the net: 

Guru Nanak in Mecca

From SikhiWiki

Jump to: navigation, search
A 16th Century Depiction of Mecca

Guru Nanak went to Mecca in the year 1518 A.D, in which he went on his 4th (last) udassi (journey/travel). Bhai Mardana went with him and he put on a blue dress worn by hajjis or Muhammadens who went on pilgrimage in those times, with him he took a Faqirs staff in his hand a collection of his hymns under his arm, with a jug(lota) for ablutions, thus he was in the guise of a hajji. Guru Nanak had now been on his Udasis (travels) for at least twenty years, since his sudden disappearance (around 1497) which had alarmed his followers and given some who were jealous of his growing influence to start all sorts of mischief, even accusing him of being a thief and stealing from Daulat Khan's stores.

During that time he had visited most of India going to the east as far as Assam and Burma; to the South as far as Sri Lanka (known also as Ceylon and Saran Deep) and to the north he had even crossed the Himalayas visiting Tibet and China. He and his tireless companions had travelled on foot and lived off the land and the generosity of others, Many of whom had become his followers. What a tireless traveller he was!

Guru Nanak's account of the occurrence of Mecca

Guru Nanak account of Mecca Sakhi

Plate No. 1

When I went to the Kabbah at Mecca Sharrif I was resting. From there a Kaddam (Moluvi/priest) came to me running and with raging anger and said " O Fakir move your feet away from the Kabbah and sit properly". I said with patience, humbly "Why talk in so much anger (rudely) to tell me for what I have done". After saying this I started to move my feet, whereever I moved my feet the Kabbah sharrif's door moved. That kaddam/qaddam (priest) after seeing such a miracle was suprised and asked for forgiveness. In such the priest's knowledge was enlightened and he kissed my (Guru Nanak's) hands and for his rudeness and asked for forgiveness. Everything that occured was due to Allah's great given utmost mercy and grace.

Non Muslims to Mecca

Highway Board at Mecca, Saudi Arabia

The Ottoman Empire ruled by the law of Hanafi and they were responsible for the cities of Mecca and Medina and the empire lasted from 1229-1923. In an article of mughal-ottoman relations during the reign of Akbar an interesting note on Hajj stated in an early document state that:

'No Muslims and believers in the unity of God', proclaims an Ottoman imperial firman, 'should be hindered in any way if he wishes to visit the Holy Cities and circumambulate the luminous Ka'ba.'42

42. M.D., vol. 6, f. 17, firman no. 39, 1564-5, quoted by Faroqhi, op. cit. 147.


Where the idea of unity of God being ruihana (light coming out of face/hallo), enlightned, mukht, having experienced the 7th heaven from sufi perspective of Tawhid/fanna/wajjad-al-wahud. This theology of the Ottoman empire came from the theology of Jalal ad-Din Mu?ammad Rumi - the collapase of the ottoman empire is believed to be done by the British by divide and conquer in which they created the ideology of "wahhabism".

Notice there is a distinction between muslims and non-muslim monotheists. One of the 4 sunni schools also say that only polytheists (idol worshippers) are banned from the city of Mecca.


By Shaykh Faraz Rabbani - From Sunnipath.com - http://qa.sunnipath.com/issue_view.asp?HD=1&ID=5101&CATE=239" In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate

May Allah's peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad, his folk, companions, and followers


Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

In the Hanafi school, it is permitted for non-Muslims to enter all mosques, including the Haram of Mecca, as they interpreted the Qur'anic verse

009.028 O you who believe! The idolaters only are unclean. So let them not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship after this their year.

to be a specific prohibition against them entering as they did before Islam in the Days of Jahiliyya, in which they entered with their idols, manifested their polytheistic worship, and engaged in reprehensible actions such as performing tawaf while naked. [Sarakhsi, Sharh al-Siyar al-Kabir, 1.134-135; Ibn al-Humam/Marghinani, Fath al-Qadir 'ala al-Hidaya, 10.63] As for the idolaters being unclean (najas), that refers to spiritual uncleanness due to their beliefs rather than physical uncleanness. [Jassas, Ahkam al-Qur'an; Kasani, Bada'i' al-Sana'i']

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam, Faraz Rabbani"


It is argued Guru Nanak is a Muslim for entering the City of Mecca (in Janamsakhi Guru Nanak went to Mecca on the request of Bhai Mardana) on the basis given below:


Mecca and Madinah are cities of great importance in Islamic tradition -- centers of pilgrimage and prayer, sacred places where Muslims are free from the distractions of daily life. The ban on non-Muslim visitors is mentioned in the Qur'an as follows: "Oh you who believe! Truly the idolaters are unclean; so let them not, after this year, approach the Sacred Mosque..." (9:28). This verse specifically refers to the Grand Mosque in Mecca; later scholars have included Madinah in this ruling as well. There are some Islamic scholars who would permit exceptions to this general rule, for trade purposes or for people who are under treaty permission. There is also some debate about the exact area and borders of the restricted area(s). The government of Saudi Arabia, which controls access to the holy sites, has decided upon a strict ban on both cities in their entirety.

Restricting access to Mecca and Madinah is intended to provide a place of peace and refuge for Muslim believers and preserve the sanctity of the holy cities. At this time, millions of Muslims visit the cities each year, and additional tourist traffic would simply add to the congestion and detract from the spirituality of the pilgrimage visit.

Quran - Surah Tauba

  • In Holy Quran it's mentioned in Surah Tauba like 9:28:

[Taubah 9:28] O People who Believe! The polytheists are utterly filthy *; so after this year do not let them come near the Sacred Mosque; and if you fear poverty **, then Allah will soon make you wealthy with His grace, if He wills; indeed Allah is All Knowing, Wise.

Oh you who believe! Truly the idolaters are unclean; so let them not, after this year, approach the Sacred Mosque(9:28).

Surah-Tauba is not against Nanak

Surah Tauba is not against the path which nanak follows. All Interpretations does not fit against Gurmat Philosphy, neither Sikhs are idolators nor they are polytheist. All Devotees follow god were strict monotheist and were follower of allah. Nanak was one who recieved divine revelation, which contains defination of True Muslim :

???????? ?????? ?????? ?? ??? ?? ???????? ????? ?
???? ???? ???? ??? ???? ???? ???? ???? ?????? ? ??? ??????? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ?? ???? ?????? ?
?? ?? ???? ???? ??? ???? ???? ???? ??? ????? ? ?? ???? ??? ??? ???????? ??? ? ???????? ????? ???
Musalma? kahava? muskal ja ho?e ?a musalma? kahavai.
Aval a?ul ?in kar mi??a maskal mana mal musavai. Ho?e muslim ?in muha?ai mara? jiva? ka b?aram c?uk?avai.
Rab ki raja?e manne sir upar kar?a manne ap gavavai. Ta?o Nanak sarab ji?a mihrama? ho?e ?a musalma? kahavai. (1)
It is difficult to be called a Muslim; if one is truly a Muslim, then he may be called one.
First, let him savor the religion of the Prophet as sweet; then, let his pride of his possessions be scraped away.
Becoming a true Muslim, a disciple of the faith of Mohammed, let him put aside the delusion of death and life.
As he submits to God's Will, and surrenders to the Creator, he is rid of selfishness and conceit.
And when, O Nanak, he is merciful to all beings, only then shall he be called a Muslim. (1)

The person who have defined Musalman, in four lines is also a true musalmann. Whole Sikhs are Musalmann too, but they are the musalmann which was written by Nanak. Sikhs neither Worship Books, nor they believe in any ritual. In Gurmat these are condenmed. Further Nanak also explained what Actually are true Namaz

???? ?????? ??? ???? ???? ???? ??? ? ????? ??? ???? ??? ???? ??? ????? ?

???? ????? ???? ??? ????? ????? ???? ? ???? ???? ??? ?? ?? ???????? ???? ? ???? ???? ?????? ???? ???? ??? ???

Panj nivaja vak?a? panj panja panje na?o. Pahila sac? halal ?u?e ?ija k?air k?u?a?e.

C?a?uthi ni?a? ras man panjvi sifa? sana?e. Kar?i kalma ak? kai ?a musalma? sa?a?e. Nanak je?e ku?i?ar kurhai ku?i pa?e. (3)

There are five prayers and five times of day for prayer; the five have five names.
Let the first be truthfulness, the second honest living, and the third charity in the Name of God.
Let the fourth be good will to all, and the fifth the praise of the Lord.
Repeat the prayer of good deeds, and then, you may call yourself a Muslim.
O Nanak, the false obtain falsehood, and only falsehood. (3)

The whole teachings are given in Sacred Scriptures of Islam Religion, but what if the people do not follow the teachings which are incorporated in Granth by Hazrat Muhammad. This was reason which make Nanak to visit and meet priest of head shrines so that, the people who are not following religion properly and are away from the way should be guided and all curroption which they put in religion should be emoved.

At Mecca nanak was with friend Mardana, Pir Bahawal Haq and Qazi Rukn - ud - din.

Meaning of Mecca in Gurmat

Gurmat defined Mecca, Haaji and Kaaba in way of spirituality. Haaji is one who Purifies his own heart, Mecca is Mind of person which need to be turned(i.e one become Gurmukh from Manmukh). Kaaba is heart(not physical) which is present in between person, if mind turns toward heart and compassion arisis automatically means one have gone to hajj. No worldly Hajj is required. Kabir also denigrates worldly Hajj that it's no use of Hajj. Nanak choice of Hajj was a Mission which was given to him by Allah Subhanawtalah. :

Kaaba

???? ??? ????? ?????? ???? ????? ? ??? ????? ??? ????? ?????? ???? ????? ? ??? ?Roja ??arai nivaj gujarai kalma b?isa? na ho?i.Keeping your fasts, reciting your prayers, and reading the Kalma, the Islamic creed, shall not take you to paradise.

???? ???? ?? ?? ????? ?? ??? ???? ??? ??????? ???? ?? ?? ????? ?? ??? ???? ??? ???Sa?ar kaba g?at hi b?i?ar je kar janai ko?i. ||2|| The Temple of Mecca is hidden within your mind, if you only knew it. ||2||


Mecca

??? ???? ???? ?? ???? ???? ???? ???? ?? ???? ?Maka mihar roja pai k?aka.Let compassion be your Mecca, and the dust of the feet of the holy your fast.

????? ??? ??? ???? ?????? ?????? ??? ??? ???? ?????? ?B?isa? pir lafaj kama?e an?aja.Let Paradise be your practice of the Prophet's Word.

??? ??? ????? ?????? ????? ??? ??? ????? ?????? ??? ????? ?????? ????? ??? ??? ????? ???Hur nur musak k?u?a?i?a ban?agi alah ala hujra. ||5|| God is the beauty, the light and the fragrance. Meditation on Allah is the secluded meditation chamber. ||5||

??? ??? ??? ????? ??? ???? ???? ??? ??? ????? ??? ???? ?Man kar maka kibla kar ?ehi.Let your mind be Mecca, and your body the temple of worship.

Haaji

?? ???? ???? ??? ???? ??? ???? ???? ??? ???? ?Jo ?il so??ai so?i haji.He alone is a Haji, a pilgrim to Mecca, who purifies his heart.

Reason of Nanak visit

  • In Gurmaukh's viewpoint, The Supreme Command always makes Nanak visit so far and to talk with Religious Scholars and tell them the way which they are following is not what allah wants. They even not stand with their holy quran. Nanak was follower of God's Hukam so under guidance of Hukam, Nanak went to Mecca. In very beginning, person have no knowledge by Attaining Naam Padarath he is able to Listen to the supreme Command. Allah says Nanak to visit Mecca, on his command Nanak travelled so far in west.

Islam is propagated through Mecca and During those times people have immense devotion for the place. Guru Nanak met all high priests of Various religions, sects, but not mecca. So During Fourth Udasi Guru Nanak decided to go towards the west in the direction of the setting sun. He turned his attention to the Muslim countries and the places of worship that had been established long before the beginning of Islam.

He chose Mecca as the first of the many Muslim cities he would visit. From there he would begin his long walk home. Today everyone knows that Mecca is in Saudi Arabia, but in Guru Nanak's days before Ibn Saud was born the land around Mecca and Medina, the Hijaz, was part of the Mamluk Sultanate centered in Egypt.

For hundreds of years it had been a resting place on the trading routes between the East and the Mediteranean. There was a famous ancient well and a temple that had always housed the many idols of the tribes around the city and those of the merchants whose caravans brought wealth to this little desert outpost.

Prophet of Islam

It was the Prophet of Islam Mohammed (pbuh) that cleared the cube (now draped in black curtains with Golden letters) of its many idols as he began his efforts to convince the Jews and his fellow Arabs that he was a Prophet sent by God, who through the Angel Gabriel was not only a Prophet, but the Seal of the Prophets. He had been forced to flee Makkah (Mecca) with his band of followers finding safety in the city of Medina with its tribes of Jews. Yet even there, his own tribesmen had attempted to kill him and his followers, but having survived the attempt on his life, he now sat out to win all of Arabia to his new religion, known simply as Islam (submission to God). The Bahai faith from Iran understand the word Seal of prophets not to mean the final prophet however state it to mean the grace of the prophets, where the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) humbles himself as being the grace of the 124,000 prophets that came before him. The bahai also have many more articles on the means of prophet-hood and how religious separatism falls from one faith to another how Christianity exists after Judaism, Islam after Christianity and many faiths after.

Scorned by the Jewish

Scorned by the Jewish tribes who prayed to God in the direction of Jerusalem, Mohammad changed the direction in which his followers prayed, from Jerusalem to the east towards the west in the direction of the Ka'aba. His message was now that the religion of the Jews, whose holy books had proclaimed them the chosen people of God, had strayed from the form and rituals as had been practised in Abraham's days and that the new forms he introduced were simply a restoration of the religion as first practised by Abraham.

The Quran mentions some from amongst the Israelites of old that some had disobeyed God concerning the Sabbath and thus were turned into apes. The verses states:

And certainly you know of those who exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, so we (God) said to them, "Be you apes, despised." (Quran 2:65)

House of God

Whether this turning into apes and swine was physical or merely a metaphor, indicating that those people had lost their intellect is unfortunately open to interpretation; Educated Islamic scholars have argued for both.

Mohammad then sat out to convert the many tribes of the Bedouin around him, including his tribe the Quresh (his own tribe), who were practising a mishmash of Idolatry, ect. (Even today many Muslims take the reference in the Qur'an to apes and monkyies

It was to the Ka'aba, the ancient cube that the Muslims call the House of God, that Guru Nanak next turned his attention. Guru Nanak, witnessing the way that the men of Babar and the Afgani conquerors before him, had practised their religion on the people of Punjab and India had ample reason to believe that Islam had once again, gone astray.

The Hajj

Each year a pilgrimage, called the Hajj (Arabic: ??,) occurs during the 6th to the 12th day of Dhul Hijjah, in the 12th month of the Islamic calendar. Pilgrims who complete this pilgramage to Makkah and preform its arduous rituals can add the suffix Hajji to their names, which is considered a title of honor.

Each person walks counter-clockwise seven times around the Kaaba, the cubical building towards which all Muslims pray each day, kiss the sacred black meteorite mounted on its corner, run back and forth between the hills of Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, drink from the well of Zamzam, go to the plains of Mount Arafat and stand in vigil, then gather pebbles to throw at stone pillars that represent the devil. The pilgrims then shave their heads, perform an animal sacrifice (now it is customary to pay for the cost of the animal and someone else's doing the task), and celebrate the four day festival of Eid ul-Adha.



Attire of Guru Nanak

Meccaaa.jpg

When Guru Nanak went for Udasis then he used to Change his dress(called bekh) which look alike the persons which could meet him during that travels. During Udasi to Gorakhmata, Siddhas also asked to NANAK:

???? ????? ?????? ???? ????? ?
Why have you left your house and become a wandering Udaasee?

???? ????? ??? ???? ?????? ?
Why have you adopted these religious robes? (???? 939, ??? 16)

He used to remove robes when he return to Home. During days of Hajj, Nanak and Mardana planned to Visit Mecca, and Guru Nanak wear Same dress which Hajis wear during Hajj.

In almost all Histories it is mentioned that, He put on the blue attire worn by hajjis. (Today all male Hajjis must wear a simple two piece white garment of rough homespun cloth.) He took a fakir's staff, or stick in his hand. The Guru carried a book of his sacred songs or hymns. Like the hajjis, he had with him a iota or jug. He also carried a prayer mat like the hajjis. Dressed thus, he looked like a typical hajji. All along, he acted in every way as hajjis did. Bhai Mardana, a Muslim, was with him he also dressed as a hajji.

Guru Nanak arrived in Mecca, dressed in Navy-blue dress (Neel Bastar) with Bala and Mardana. In the picture Nanak and Bala are having discourses while Mardana is having Ziarat (prayers) inside Mecca. All three are dressed in blue, the colour in which the Fourth Veda was wrapped when brought by Krishna from under the throne of Indra which upon being thrown to earth, is the Ka'aba (by Kahan-nabi). The stool on which Indra rested his feet is also in North Saudi Arabia, a less known shrine. Thus, Nanak dressed in Neela Bana: Neel Bastar lai kaprey pahirey, Turk -pathani amal kiya (adorned navy-blue dress adopting Turki form). Later, as the Tenth Nanak (Guru Gobind Singh), discarded it by saying: Neel bastar lai kaprey faare, Turk pathani amal giya (adorned blue-attire torn, discarding the Turk Pathani form). Out of this form the Nihang sect originated.

Reaching Jeddah, in now Saudi Arabia

Guru Jee then debarked on the Arabian coast at Jeddah. From there, he walked on foot reaching Mecca in due course. By the time he arrived in Mecca, he was very tired. His feet were sore and he needed rest. So he lay down to rest himself. He knew quite well that no Muslim would lie with his feet towards the Kaaba. But he wanted to draw the attention of the hajjis, so that he could teach them his wisdom.



While Muslims hold that Adam landed in Shri Lanka, when expelled from Heaven, they hold that Eve landed in Jeddah a name derived from Jaddah, the Arabic word for "grandmother" or the mother of all mankind.



At Mecca

Baba Nanak at mecca

At Mecca, Nanak was found sleeping with his feet towards the Kaaba, before which the Muslims prostrated themselves when performing their prayer. Kazi Rukan-ud-din, who observed this, angrily remarked: "Infidel! How dare you dishonour God's place by turning your feet towards Him?" He also kicked Nanak. The Guru did not show any anger. In fact, he was never angry with anybody. He smiled at Jiwan. In a calm, sweet voice he said to him, "Brother, don't be angry. I am very tired. I need rest. I respect the House of God as much as any one. Please turn my feet in a direction in which God or the House of God is not."

The Qazi took hold of the Guru's feet. He dragged them in the opposite direction. Then he lifted his eyes. He saw the Kaaba standing in the direction of the Guru's feet. He turned the Guru's feet in another direction. The Kaaba was seen standing in that direction. Qazi dragged the Guru's feet to this side and that. He dragged them round and round. The Kaaba was seen to be going round and round. It was always, in the direction of the Guru's feet. His feet were always towards the Kaaba. The Qazi was struck with wonder. He then recognised the glory of Guru Nanak.

Kazi Rukan-ud-di and the other hajjis were all filled with wonder. Jiwan let go of the Guru's feet. The Guru got up and said, 'Don't you see that God's House is in every direction? I tell you He dwells in every place, in every heart. He is in your hearts. He is also in mine.'

Hajjis vs. Nanak

In the morning, a number of learned hajjis gathered around the Guru. They held religious discussions with him. He satisfied every one of them. He explained to them his golden rules of life and religion. They listened to him with utmost attention. They agreed to live and act as advised by him.

The Kazis and the Mullahs assembled to question Nanak on the subject of religion and God, Who has extended His Creation and no one can fathom the secrets of Nature. The muslim priest opened a book and asked him ' Who is superior – Hindu or Mullalman.'Baba Nanak answered 'Oh Hajis, without performance of good deeds, both Hindu and Muslims will lament. Both will be denied shelter in God's court on the basis of their respective religions alone. The colour of the flower called Kasumbh (Carthamus Tinctoria) is washed away by water (so labels are fragile). The followers of both religions are quarelling, but of them are equal in the eye's of God. The world has gone astray as it pursues the path of sin.

On page 193 of Bala's Janam Sakhi, we have: Nanak said, O!, Rukn-ud-Din, hear from me the true reply, the saying of the Lord is written in the Book. That person will go to hell who does not repeat the Kalima, who does not keep the thirty fasts, and does not say the five prayers, who eats what is not lawful for him. These shall receive the punishment and the fire of the bottomless pit shall be his abode.

Nanak said, 0: Rukn-ud-Din, it is written in the Book (i.e., the Quran) that those who drink wine or 'Bhang' shall be punished on the Day of Judgement.

It is also said that one of them said to the Guru, 'Holy Sir, give me something which will always remind me of you.' The Guru gave him his pair of sandals. They were respectfully kept in the Kaaba for some time. That Muslim fakir then returned to India. He brought the sandals with him. He kept them in his temple at Uch in Bahawalpur, now in Pakistan.

Nanak Shah Fakir, Hindu's Guru; Muslim's Pir

Historical Evidences

History of the Panjab - Syad Muhammand Latif

"He (Nanak) travelled over the whole of India; visited Persia, Kabul and other parts of Asia, and, it is said, even Mecca. A story is related by both Hindus and Mahomedians in connection with Nanak's visit to Mecca. It is said that, while at Mecca, Nanak was found sleeping with his feet to the Kaaba, before which the Mahomedans prostrate themselves when performing their devotions. The Kazi, Ruku-ud-din, who observed this, angrily remarked: "Infidel, how dare you dishonour God's house by turning your feet towards it!" "Turn them, if you can," replied Nanak, "in a direction where the house of God is not."

History of the Sikhs - Hari Ram Gupta

In "History of the Sikhs", Vol. 1, Edition 1984 at page 66, Dr. Hari Ram Gupta said:

"Nanak dressed himself in the manner of a Haji or pilgrim to Mecaa and Medina. He put on blue garments, carried an earthen jug for water, and a small carpet for saying prayers. A thick staff was in his hand. "And when an opportunity offered, he shouted the Muhammadan call to prayer like any orthodox follower of the Arabian prophet." At Mecca, while sleeping his feet moved towards the Ka'ba, the sacred shrine of Islam. The angry Mulla named Jiwan kicked and scolded him for showing disrespect to the house of God. Quietly came the answer:

"Pray, turn my feet in the direction where all-pervading God is not present."

Donning blue attire then Baba Nanak went to Mecca.
He held staff in his hand, pressed a book under his armpit, caught hold of a metal pot and mattress.
Now he sat in a mosque where the pilgrms (hajis) had gathered.
When Baba (Nanak) slept in the night spreading his legs towards the alcove of mosque at Kaba,
the qazi named Jivan kicked him and asked who was this infidel enacting blasphemy.
Why this sinner is sleeping his legs spread towards God, Khuda.
Catching hold of the legs he lynched (Baba Nanak) and lo and behold the miracle, the whole of Mecca seemed to be revolving.
All got surprised and they all bowed.

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.

Wooden sandal (of Baba Nanak ) was kept as a memory and he was worshipped in Mecca.
Go anywhere in the world, you would not find a place bereft of the name of Baba Nanak.
Without discrimination of Hindu or Muslim, in every house, the Baba is revered.
When the sun rises it cannot be covered and it lightens the whole world.
When the lion roared in the jungle the flocks of deer ran away.
If someone wants to conceal moon by putting before it a platter, it cannot be hide.
From rising to setting directions i.e from east to west, all the nine divisions of earth bowed before Baba Nanak.
He diffused his power in whole of the world.

Sau Sakhi - Oldest manuscript of Namdharis

The Karni Namah and the Raj Namah are two significant chapters of the Sau Sakhi, (One hundred stories) called by some the Sikh book of prophecy. The Raj Namah appears in, The History Of The Sikhs, by J D Cunningham on p. 340. Cunningham came across this document during the mid 19th century. He states that these compositions are of course fabulous (fables) as regards Guru Nanak (and opposed to the writings of Guru Gobind Singh who sought no expansive Kingdom and thought little of earthly riches and palaces.) Written by someone who understood little of the Gurus teachings and would turn Guru Nanak into a fortune teller who could foretell events as if he were God equating him with the likes of Nostradamus. Rome was of no importance as a World power by the time of the Sikh Gurus. A Sikh does of course currently sit in a seat of power in Delhi, but to cast Guru Gobind Singh as a conquerer from East to West similar to the Madhi of the Shias or the Messiah of the Jews, is questionable.

The Karni Namah was said to be revealed to Qazi Rukan Din, Pir Bahaoud Din, Ghous, Kuthab, Saalaar, Hajji, Sheikh and Mushaikh Aulviya, who sat with Guru Nanak at religious discussions. The Raj Namah was told to Kaarun, on Guru Nanak's return from medina.

Karni Nama

While Guru Nanak was in Mecca and Medina, Qazi Rukan Din asked, True King, tell us your prophecy again. Tell us how you will unfold the future?. Your name is Nanak Nirankari and you are from the Nation of the Lord. What are the instructions for the future?

Nanak replied to Rukan Din, listen to the true answer Whosoever reads or listens to this shall be content. All doubts shall be removed.

In the tenth dress shall reside The Lord. I shall fight many battles against Emperor Aurangzeb.

I shall then send a letter of victory (Zafarnamah) to Aurangzeb with my Singh (Bhai Daya Singh).

Upon seeing him, Power shall lessen and he shall forget his devious ways.

Emperor Aurangzeb will be overwhelmed by the sight of Daya Singh and will start to tremble.

The Khalsa been resurrected! Good has not been done by Gobind Singh? I shall leave having given a kingdom; My name being Gobind

There will be a time when the Khalsa shall forget the teachings I have given them. Sikhi will only be left in name. Many Wars shall occur.

I will have to return again to resurrect the Khalsa. They shall reside in the Punjab.

I shall make people from all four corners into one. They will be in Majjha; They will raid Lahore.

They will bring Potohaar to justice; They will take Peshawar.

They will set up a cantonment at Attock and then open the Khyber Pass.

They will establish a kingdom in Kabul and then take Ghazni. After bringing Hazaara to justice they will march on to Kandahar.

After taking Balack and Buckaara, they will conquer Sindh and Baloch.

After gaining victory over these lands they shall govern all the people.

Mecca, Medina and Rome shall tremble. They shall gain victory in battle over south and west India.

The Guru's Army shall sit at the throne of Delhi. Umbrellas of kingship shall sway over their heads. All shall be content.

From East to West all shall be conquered. None shall challenge the Khalsa. All humanity shall become one.

In the kingdom of the True King, Satjug shall be established.

The Khalsa Panth shall rule. The arrows of death shall not touch them.

The Army of the Timeless shall grow and spread like locusts.

All shall wear vestments of blue; no one else shall be seen. Listen Qazi Rukan Din, The Singhs shall rule.

The Unholy Sheikhs shall be destroyed. Pirs and Mureeds shall be no more.

All shall recite the one name of the Lord. Then he shall come himself.

The untrue shall not be able to see his glory. All humanity shall unite and he will distribute provinces.

The Earth shall give food and the mountains shall give diamonds.

Fruits of many kinds there shall be, upon the sight of the timeless. All shall recite VAHEGURU and achieve salvation.

Many Dharamsalas (places of discussion) shall exist. The Koran and the Mosques shall vanish.

The Lord shall manifest himself in body (as man).

He will make all utter VAHEGURU. All Singhs shall flock under his banner.

All shall know him as the True One. He will sit at the throne of Delhi.

He will establish a kingdom of peace and no enemies will remain.

Wherever the Khalsa turns his eye, the 14 realms shall tremble.

For 14,000 years, this kingdom shall remain. Wealth will be collected and food shall be distributed.

The naked and the starving shall all receive; no one will go without.

Sayeth Nanak, Rukan Din, This is how it shall be. Whosoever reads the Karni Namah, his love with The Lord shall grow.

The Word of the Timeless shall prevail. Those uttering falsehood shall not remain.

After the effect of The Akaal, forests, mountains and the world shall see salvation.

The Khalsa shall Rule. There will be no-one left to oppose them. All who are lost shall gain the safety of the Khalsa

Raj Nama

Spoken by the First Master First, Nanak went to Mecca; Medina he afterwards visited.

The lord of Mecca and Medina, Kaarun, he made his disciple. When Nanak was about to depart,

Kaarun, the fortunate, thus spoke:

Now thou art about to go, But when wilt thou return?

Then the Guru thus answered:

When I put on my tenth dress I shall be called Gobind Singh; Then shall all Singhs wear their hair;

They shall accept the 'Pahal' of the two-edged Sword Then shall the Khalsa be established;

Then shall men exclaim 'Vaheguru' The four races shall become one and the same;

The five weapons shall be worn by all. In Kalyug they shall array themselves in vestments of blue;

The name of the Khalsa shall be everywhere. In the time of Aurangzeb

The wondrous Khalsa shall arise. Then shall battles be waged, Endless war shall ensue,

And fighting shall follow year after year. They shall place the name of Gobind Singh in their hearts.

When many heads shall be rendered up, The Empire of the Khalsa shall prevail.

First, they shall conquer Punjab; Then other countries shall be theirs;

Hindustan and the North shall be possessed by them; Then the west shall bow to them.

When they enter Khorasan, Kabul and Kandahar shall lie low.

When Iran has been laid prostrate, Arabia shall be conquered and they shall march on to Mecca.

Mecca shall be beheld, And Medina shall be seized.

Mighty shall be the rejoicing, And all shall exclaim 'Vaheguru'.

Unbelievers shall everywhere be destroyed; The holy Khalsa shall be exalted.

Beasts and Birds shall tremble in the presence of the Lord.

Men and Women shall everywhere call on God. The Earth, the Oceans and the Heavens shall call on God.

By calling on the Guru shall men be blessed. Every faith shall become of the Khalsa;

No other religion will remain. 'Vaheguru' shall everywhere be repeated,

And pain and trouble shall depart. In the Kalyug shall the Kingdom be established,

Which Nanak received from the Lord. Worthless, I fall before God;

Nanak, the slave, cannot comprehend the ways of the Lord. Thus replied Nanak to Kaarun's question.

Note the couplets " I shall return to resurrect the Khalsa", "All shall wear vestments of blue", "All Sikhs shall flock under his banner." These statements do not hang well with these sects. Their 'Guru' has not reserected the Khalsa so it follows that any second coming of Guru Gobind Singh Ji is yet to come. All shall wear blue, this is one of the colours of the Khalsa, most sects wear white. All Sikhs shall frock under his banner, most Sikhs reject these sects so it cannot be talking about them.

One boat is preserved at Uchch wherein Guru Nanak and Makhdum of Uchch travelled together to Mecca.

Urdu textbook which contained a poem by Iqbal in which he had paid rich tribute to him:.

The land where, Chishti delivered the message of truth.

The land where Nanak sang the song of God's oneness,

The land where the Tatars made their home,

The land which lured the Arabs from Arabia,

That land is my home, that is my home.

Mehrban Janamsakhi

Meharban was contemporary of 5th Guru who also mentioned same thing in his Janamsakhi that NANAk went to mecca.



Journey to Mecca

In detail on How Guru ji got there

Some Questions

  1. How could Guru Nanak visit Mecca if he wasn't a Muslim?
    The assertion that non-Muslims cannot infiltrate Mecca is false. The city of Mecca was not developed during the time of the Guru. It was a vast desert land and people could commute freely unlike now. Only until recently Saudi Arabia has become rich with the oil money and developed as a result.

    Guru Nanak Sahib Ji is neither the first nor the last non-Muslim to visit or infiltrate Mecca. The most famous incident of a non-Muslim visiting Mecca was the visit by the British explorer Sir Richard Burton in 1853. Burton disguised himself as an Afghani Muslim to visit and write Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to Al Madinah and Mecca. Therefore, how can it be impossible for Guru Nanak Sahib Ji, who is 'Akaal Roop', the embodiment of the Divine Light of God, to visit Mecca? The who land belongs to God, so how can the Living Image of God, Guru Nanak Sahib Ji be stopped traveling anywhere in the world. God or God's power cannot be limited.

Professor Puran Singh, the Sikh scholar of the Singh Sabha Movement about a century ago states:

"We as Sikhs shall read the human history even in fiction as the Guru intends. A poor Mussalman says that Guru Nanak never visited Mecca as if his visiting Mecca cannot take place in our brain. His visit to the Mecca is only reqired by us to learn that God whom they, the Moslems, say is in Kaaba is everywhere. It is only to correct a human misconception, otherwise the Mecca is as good a city as any other in the desert dotted with palms. The Beduins are no better men than the Mussalmans of Malabar."

-Professor Puran Singh
