Sikhs and Interfaith


The Sikh Dharam (faith) has been a faith of interfaith since its origin.


The founder of the Sikh faith, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, travelled around India and the Middle East with two friends; Bhai Mardana Ji, a Muslim and Bhai Bala Ji, a Hindu. As lifelong friends, they encountered many people of faith on their journeys and engaged in interfaith dialogue.


The Sri Harmandir Sahib, one of the holiest Sikh shrines, reinforces the teaching of interfaith, as you can see from the video further down on this page.


As Sikhs do not believe in conversion, the act of interfaith dialogue is used to build understanding, love, solidarity and cohesion between all.
