Recommended Posts

Guest singh sabha

I'm still only relatively young, but i've been wondering something. I'm a woman, and I don't want to get married in the future but i do want to have a child one day.

What does Sikhi say about adoption and IVF treatment?

it says that you are allowed to get ivf done

At Delhi, Mata Sundari ji adopted a young boy whom she named Ajit Singh because of his resemblance to her own late son, Sahibzada Ajit Singh ji. After the passing away of Guru Gobind Singh ji at Nanded in October 1708, the Sikhs looked up to her for guidance. She appointed Bhai Mani Singh ji to manage the sacred shrines at Amritsar and also commissioned him to collect the writings of Guru Gobind Singh ji. She also issued under her own seal and authority hukamnamas to sangats. The hukamnamas since discovered and published bear dates between 12 October 1717 and 10 August 1730.

Mata Sundari ji was disappointed in her adopted son, Ajit Singh. Emperor Bahadur Shah treated him as the successor of Guru Gobind Singh ji, called him to his court and gave him a robe of honour in September 1710. This went to his head and he started living in style as a courtier. He grew arrogant and haughty even towards Mata Sundari who disowned him, and migrated to Mathura.

Ajit Singh was later convicted for murder and was put to death on 18 January 1725. Mata Sundari ji returned to live in Delhi where she, died in 1747. A memorial in her honour stands in the compound of Gurdwara Bala Sahib, New Delhi.

At the time of adoption Guru Gobind Singh Sahib G also refused.

So adoption might not b a gud idea!!!!!!

Plz forgive for any mistake

Waheguru g ka khalsa,

waheguru g ki fateh

This is the exception not the rule,

I don't know if this helps, my wife and I, both Sikhs, adopted two siblings born from Sikh parents. We already had children, but I always wanted to adopt even before I got married. GuruJi granted me a wife who shared my feelings.

As to raising a child not of Sikh descent, we found it easier for the children to be accepted without feeling alienated by a strange culture if ey were of the same race culture and faith. BUT, if a child of another faith had been offered, I would not have had a problem with ensuring that the faith of the natural parents be followed, and if necessary for me to find someone of that faith to ensure that their religious schooling did not go adrift. Obviously they would still be brought up with an understanding and regard of our faith, but In our religion, all religions are good and lead to GuruJi

I disagree with this view; however you're basic views on adoption do lead to some things.

If you are doing good for another, then you are doing right. The Gurus taught living the life of a householder is best so obviously if you can get married then try and do that.

Even if it doesn't work out, there is always divorce, but you'll never know if you don't try. Many couples marriages last for many years, and a loving relationship is divine.
