Unique Attributes of the Sikh Faith-
There are so many unique attributes and many firsts in Sikh faith, which make us
so lucky and proud to be a Sikh. Some of them are:
1. Sikh scriptures (Guru Granth Sahib), available to the world humanity, is in
original form, the word of God, written, sealed and delivered by the Sikh
prophets themselves and has not been changed by any body else.
2. No scriptures of any other religion in the world can make that claim.
3. Only Sikh scriptures give human race guidance on the clean and spiritual way
4. Sikh prophets took out the intermediary between the human beings and God i.e.
Sikhs can pray and have a direct connection with God without the assistance of
any intermediaries. Other world religions are still suffering from that ill of
intermediaries who have been, in the past, and are still exploiting the innocent
masses for their own interests and benefits.
5. Sikh prophets preached the life without any rituals, myths or promises from
any body as to how to meet God and/or how to go to heaven, thus making Sikhs to
be self reliant and confident. They rejected/condemned the notion of all
religious preachers, who would promise the innocent masses of (a) life of luxury
with beautiful women in heaven or (b) taking people to heaven only if they
believe in a particular prophet. No prophet would make such a pronouncement, but
the preachers/traders of those religions made up stories of such promises and
wrote them in their religious books, just to keep hold/control on the masses.
The promises of preachers of providing luxurious life or meeting God in heaven,
were concocted by the cunning people in such a way that that kind of life could
only be available after the death. Since no body has ever seen what happens
after death, such concocted stories cannot be proved, challenged or verified.
6. Sikh scriptures are written in every day-spoken language of the masses, who
can read and understand the scriptures themselves, thereby taking away any
chance of any body else misleading the Sikhs.
7. Sikh scriptures teach us to be spiritual in our lives by taking God’s Naam,
which means that we should try to bring God’s attributes of TRUTH, HUMILITY,
LOVE OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS, NOT BE FEARFUL OF ANY BODY OR BE FEARFUL TO OTHERS etc
into our own lives, and make our lives peaceful and contended, which is the
basic desire of all the human beings on this earth.
8. The status of women was elevated more than 500 years ago (much earlier than
the present day women equality) by Sikh Gurus, even higher than men by clearly
stating the unique power of women only, to produce saints. 9. Non-violence
movement was started and practiced more than 400 years ago by the Sikh Gurus by
peacefully martyring their lives against the brutal and tyrannical rulers of the
