5. Taj-u-deen Naqshbandi (1509 AD, unpublished) Syahto Baba Nanak Faqir, original in Mecca State Library, translated into Punjabi by Sayyad Prithipal Singh in 1927-30, presently with Prof Himmat Singh (Reference 4)

6. Khwaja Zain ul Abideen (1505-06 AD, unpublished) Twareekh-i-Arab, translated by Mohammed Iqbal, manuscript presently with Prof Himmat Singh (Reference 4)

7. Abdul Rahman (1506-07), Gunitusalehin, manuscript presently with Prof Himmat Singh (Reference 4)

This is one area of the Panth, that I feel we are sadly lacking in. The acknowledgement and awareness of such material existing, and the failure to share it.

Prof Himmat Singh has 3 manuscripts that would change the dynamics of the Sikh link with the arab world, yet we are only fed snippets here and there. Can anyone get in touch with Prof and ask him to get these published?

I would love to see this happen. Such valuable material, that would give us so much insight into our beloved Guru's life.

Syed Prithipal Singh was a Muslim Kashmiri who went on Islamical studies & Hajj tour to the Arabian peninsula. During his studies in Medina he came across a contemponary account of Guru Nanak Sahibs Arab visit and greatness. Therafter Mushtaq Ahmed became Prithipal Singh.

This news has been online since more than a year but no scholar has published these books which are very essential for Sikh Parchaar and (Dawah) countering.

There are also manuscripts (contemponaries of Guru Nanak Sahib) perishing due to neglect and lack of scholarly interest in these. Many of these manuscripts by non Sikh people of that time in different languages talk of miracles. One such manuscript comes to mind about Guru Nanak Sahibs visit to Orissa. There are texts about visits to Tibet aswel who are guarded by monks along with statues of Guru Nanak Sahib.

Don't conclude on the basis of one article brother... there are more Shaheeds from the times of Guru Nanak Sahib. We have to research history to be more sure. Bhai Gurdas Dian Varan mention atleast name of one other GurSikh of Guru Nanak who became Shaheed.

Maybe goes to prove we shouldn't be sniffy about learning other languages and going on a search ourselves and engaging the custodians of this knowledge before the powers that 'wannabe' destroy it or disappear it

I guarantee there is much more we don't know about Guru Nanak's journey around the world. Definitely a nice read though

Agreed, we recently discovered and have proof of guru jis trip down to the vatican, the heart of catholicism. We know guru ji has been to the centres of buddhism, islam, christianity, hindu n id assume jain faiths, but if im not mistaken, no mention of jewish faith. I reckon that will b the next discovery.

I always thought that he would of visited Jerusalem at that time since it is a huge and very mutli-religious city. Who really knows tbh, but we should really help Sikh scholars who are working hard on this. It's pretty cool that we found out he visited the Vatican just like last year.
