I don't think he's trying to convert me. But I see it has arabic and also its english translation side by side . 

I don't know what I should be doing with it . No disrespect intended . I am reading into it . Although it has too many primitive stories of Abrahamic prophets . But at the same time I respect all religions . 

In the past I have read vedantic lliterature sometimes, but first time I am gifted an abrahamic text.

I read the Quran out of curiosity and yes I found it primitive and almost felt like I was reading a death threat at times.

I honestly didn't learn anything from it, no gyan whatsoever, ad I read it with an open mind. 

Now nd then it tells you how you will suffer in her fire for eternity 

There's more to learn about kindness in the gospels than there is in the Quran

By "primitive" I didn't mean barbaric or backward. 

I mean quran is full of stories of old times and prophets , like Adam , Eve, Noah, Job, Jacob, Abraham , etc etc . Its very exotic stuff considering we sikhs are a dharmic religion

Yeah I meant barbaric.

Is this normal in India then? Giving religious books and stuff ?

Because where I live it would be like a controversial thing to do, many would take it as offence lol

What you need to know about religions like Christanity,  Judaism and Islam is that they are eclectic meaning they have taken concepts,  ideas, stories from religons way before them the Noah great flood story actually is an Sumerian story, Gilgamesh the great flood.

Neighboring Hindu ladies call my mom at some of their festivals and give them religious jantris like "mata laxmi ji " and other such material .

even Sikhi borrows characters and stories from ancient hindu mythology . Its even present in Sri Guru Granth sahib, 

but the topic of this thread is not to falsify religion

I wasn't try to falsify anything, why are you wasting time reading that particular book when you can spend the time to read and understand parts of the Guru Grant Sahib Ji you don't understand?

I am not "wasting time" on that book . 

I have read hindu scriptures as well, and yes Gurbani is our only guide, but isn't it one of 52 hukams of Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji to study other religion's scriptures as well

I'm only saying this because of personal experience,  i spent a lot of time 'wasted' in my opinon,  on text of other religions when I dont understand Guru Granth Shahib Ji properly.

    • I won't derail the topic, but to answer the question, it's a human to desire to belong to something exclusive. Long-term, from a Sikh perspective, it weakens the overarching super-structure instead of strengthening it. How? Because it allows other non-benevolent factions to emerge (either organically through well-meaning albeit misguided personalities OR entities and groups with an insidious agenda designed to disrupt and fracture) who argue their legitimacy; that they are as justifiable in their existence as the earlier groups. With factions comes conflict. Job done.
    • We should be supporting Sikh businesses where we can. ⠀ ⠀ As Sikhs- we should be uplifting each other as we would in Khalsa Raj. Support our brothers and sisters in their ventures. ⠀ ⠀ We have so many Sikh entrepreneurs that we shouldn’t really need to look outside of the Sikh community- from Creatives to Real Estate. ⠀ ⠀ 
    • While the world is learning to adjust to the challenges the Covid-19 pandemic has brought, India-based Amul dairy is promoting ancient ways of protecting immune systems, with the help of Ayurveda alongside practicing a healthy life style. Amul has already launched an Immunity Booster beverages range – Amul Haldi Doodh, Amul Tulsi Doodh, Amul Ginger Doodh and Amul Ashwagandha Doodh – and now the company has extended the Immunity Booster portfolio with its introduction to the ice cream category. Amul’s new Haldi Ice Cream is made with the goodness of Haldi, Pepper and Honey and the richness of dry fruits including dates, almonds and cashews. Amul describes its new offering as a mix of health and great taste. Turmeric is known for its antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties. For centuries, traditional systems like Ayurveda have used haldi, both fresh and as a dried spice powder, to promote health. Turmeric is referred to as a super food worldwide for its various health-promoting properties. In addition, pepper is another spice that is known to Indian households to treat respiratory diseases and good for digestion. Honey is also rich in antioxidants and can help dry throats. Accompanying Amul’s new offering is a nationwide TV and print media campaign promoting the products’ health benefits. Amul’s new ice cream is available at a price of Rs 40 (125ml tamper proof cup). The company will soon be adding Immuno Chakra Ice Cream (in a stick of 60ml) and Star Anise Doodh (in a 200ml can) to the range. Haldi Ice Cream is being packed at state of the art manufacturing plants in North and West India, with a production capacity of 5,00,000 packs per day. https://www.dairyindustries.com/news/34965/amul-launches-new-haldi-ice-cream/#:~:text=Amul's new Haldi Ice Cream,antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties.
    • It looks like this word has been used in Faridkot teeka Any 136 ਅਠਸਠਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਸਗਲ ਪੁੰਨ ਜੀਅ ਦਇਆ ਪਰਵਾਨੁ ॥   ਅਠਾਹਠਂ ਤੀਰਥੋਂ ਕੇ ਇਸਨਾਨ ਅਰ ਸਭ ਪੁੰਨੋਂ ਕੇ (ਪਰਵਾਨੁ) ਸਦਰਸ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਜੀਵੋਂ ਪਰ ਵਾ ਆਪਨੇ ਜੀਵ ਪਰ ਦਯਾ ਕਰਨੀ ਹੈ॥   Looks like it means parvaan if I have understood correctly.   However there is also the following where Faridkot has used the same but here it seems it's been used to mean "other" or "second" if I have understood correctly, unless it means greater or foremost? ਆਪੇ ਕਰੇ ਕਰਾਏ ਕਰਤਾ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਦੂਜਾ ਤੁਝੈ ਸਰੇ ॥੯॥  (Ang 552) ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਸਭ ਕੁਛ ਆਪ ਹੀ ਕਰਤਾ ਕਰਾਉਤਾ ਹੈ ਔਰ ਦੂਸਰਾ ਕੋਈ (ਸਰੇ) ਸਮਾਨ (ਤੁਝੈ) ਤਿਸ ਕੇ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ ਵਾ ਹੇ ਕਰਤਾ ਤੂੰ ਸਭ ਕਛੁ ਆਪ ਹੈਂ (ਤੁਝੇ) ਤੇਰੇ ਸਦਰਸ ਹੋਰੁ ਕੋਈ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ ਇਸੀ ਤ੍ਰਹ ਸੇ ਸਭ ਪਦ ਸਨਮੁਖ ਲਗਤੇ ਹੈਂ॥੯॥   Faridkot teeka has used this word quite a bit, I think it has been used slightly differently at different times. If you put the following search in Google, you can find all the instances the word has been used in Faridkot teeka: "ਸਦਰਸ site:srigranth.org" (without the speech marks)
    • I want to start a thread just about 84 and the movement afterwards so anyone can come here and learn about it more . To kick it off here is a speech of jaswant singh khalra I came across a few days ago. You can feel in his speech that genuine pain in his heart, from having seen with his own eyes the genocide of our own people.    Here is a channel I came across setup as a tribute to 84 for maybe more rare video footage I'd guess not everyone on here has seen.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCmZvPBEoVmtvLrv07TNYtw/videos   also here is an interview of shaheed bhai amrik singh's son bhai tarlochan singh ji,  I will try to keep this tread updated and going, and ask sangat to contribute as well.
