Guru Granth Sahib Ji,
the Sikh Holy Scripture describes the
characteristics of God. Throughout 1430 pages, Guru
Granth Sahib Ji describes and praises God.
The opening of the scripture tells us about the
description of God: "God
He is the Supreme Truth. He the Creator, is without
fear and without hate. He is immortal. He is neither
born and nor does He die. By Guru's grace shall He
be met. Chant And Meditate on His Name. In the
beginning, He was the Truth. Throughout the ages, He
has been the Truth. He is the Truth now and He shall
be the Truth forever" (Guru
Granth Sahib Ji, 1).
The most important aspect of being a Sikh, is to
understand that, there is one endless God. He is
indescribable, inestimable, indubitable, infallible,
intangible, imperishable, immutable, immortal,
immaculate, immanent, unconquerable, unique,
formless, fearless, deathless, timeless, ageless,
compassionate, omnipresent and creator of all.
"There is only the One Supreme Lord; there is no
other at all. Spirit, soul and body, all belong to
Him; whatever pleases His Will, comes to pass" (Guru
Granth Sahib Ji, 45).
God loves everyone. Sikhs believe there is no one
superior to God. Furthermore, Sikhs believe that God
created all beings, animals, birds, creatures,
including humans. When the first great Guru, the
founder of Sikh faith,
Guru Nanak Dev Ji
gave this definition to the people who believed
differently in God, they were surprised and they
asked him, who told you this and how did God come in
existence? The great Guru explained that God Himself
gave him this information. God has always been
present. The concept of time is very worldly. There
is no time, beginning or end when it comes to God.
This is very hard to understand for us humans
because we are used to the concept of begin and end
