I would seriously reconsider this viewpoint.

If there was not truth in Islam Guru Nanak Ji would not have had anything to do with muslims.

Expand on this point.

Oh, wow, you are quite naive, brother. Blows my mind.

Are you trying to say the Koran is wonderful, and it's only the stuff that's written outside of the Koran that's bad? If so, have you checked out the Koran?

"to do" as in merely talking with them? So the mere fact of talking with someone means you think there's truth in their religion/philosophy/whatever? Among other things, this proposition of yours means that people could never talk to other people for fear of validating their thinking.

Do you believe that a news reporter that does an interview with a vile person, say a Nazi, means that the National Socialism has truth?

EDIT: I cannot stand by what I said in this post.  I was totally wrong, except the following part

I know what the Moghuls and Pakistani did to Sikhs it's the definition of Evil.

My understanding of the Quaran is not good enough to go into great detail.  But consider this.  The prophet Mohammed preached equality of race, and sex, and also did not believe in caste.  When he took Mecca, and destroyed the idols, he ldid not destroy the rock I think it was placed there by Abraham?, as it was not an idol, but represented monotheism.  He commanded that no innocents and no property be harmed, and that if the enemy were to surrender they would not be hurt.  Fast forward to mass terror, conversion by the sword, and bombings that Islam is linked with today and how can we say these people are Muslims?

Was not Guru Nanak Ji's closest companion a Muslim, at the birth of SIkhi? 

Bro this is what they want you to believe. By their own law they are allowed to lie about the nature of their faith to keep it prospering. Mass terror and conversion by the sword have been policies of islam since day one. If you spend enough time around muslims you'll see what I mean. They have been doing everything you said from the beginning. You just need to look at their own history. We are fed all these lies and have been bombarded with them so much, they have now become the norm and if you speak out the truth you are labeled an "Islamaphobe". Islam is a disgusting and vile cult and God ain't got nothing to do with it. Hell even Satan (pun intended) wouldn't go next to them.

It's a huge misconception that Guru Nanak Dev Ji's companion was a muslim. Many of the friendly stories and interactions between Sikhs and islamists are a load of bollocks barring a few. Any even those were with muslims who are considered heretics.

They should live up to their lies rather than their truths then.  Lol

Well, if that's how you want to define "Muslim" maybe I'll call myself a Muslim. But that's not how 99.99% of Muslims define Muslim. They define it as believing in the Koran, and the Hadith, too.

Right, which is why the Muslims destroy churches, temples, and idols of Hindu gods, Buddha, and Jesus and Christian iconography when they conquer a territory. How's this a good thing?

"Innocents" are defined as Muslims. Property is not to be harmed because they are going to take it over.

Right, so they are demanding that Europe surrender to their demands, otherwise they will be hurt. The head of Turkey (Erdogan) actually warned that Europeans "will not walk safely on the streets" if they don't give in to his demands. That's not some ISIS nutso, that's the President of Turkey, a NATO ally!

How you can say "they won't be hurt if they surrender" is a good thing is beyond my comprehension.

Because, bro, the basis for this is contained right within the Koran:

Quran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

You are referring to Bhai Mardana, who was a Muslim by birth. By keeping the company of Guru Nanak ji, Bhai Mardana effectively became a kafir (apostate). Simply singing is forbidden in Islam, singing what is purported to be divine revelation by a prophet coming after the Prophet Mohammed is definitely apostasy. 

Put it this way: If you want to say that Bhai Mardana was still a Muslim after worshipping according to the way taught by Guru Nanak, I want to ask if you think Guru Nanak ji was still a Hindu?

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
