Q: What are the Sikh beliefs?

A: Sikhism is a monotheistic faith formed in the fifteenth century by Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Guru Nanak Dev Ji along with the following nine Gurus were sent by God Himself to deliver His message. The Tenth Guru then compiled all the teaching of Gurus into the Holy Scripture known as Guru Granth Sahib Ji which presides as the eleventh Guru of Sikhs.

God: Sikhism recognizes God as the only One. He who is the Creator of the Universe, fearless, not subject to time or space, and does not take birth or die. Sikhism clearly states that God does NOT take birth as a human. Furthermore, Sikhism does not recognize any other gods, goddesses and deities except the One Supreme Being. » More Info
