Abstract: This thesis focuses on a remarkable religion of the Sub-Continent known as Sikhism. The history of Sikhism started with a famous personality of the Sub-Continent Baba Guru Nanak in 15 th century. It throws light upon the life history of its founder Baba Guru Nanak. His spiritual thoughts are discussed in this writing in order to understand the fundamental roots of this religion. It strongly declares that it is not a divine religion and is derived from Hinduism and Islam. The reason behind this fact is that its founder was a born Hindu and was not convenient with his religion and its rituals and was strongly inspired by Islam. It thoroughly discusses about Sikhism as well as the successors of Baba Guru Nanak. The caste divisions, the reversal of monotheism and the strange customs and traditions of Hinduism made Baba Guru Nanak to despise it as a religion. In contrast, the true beliefs of Islam and the maturity and truthfulness of morals and habits of its teachings took root in the heart of Baba Guru Nanak. This thesis also throws light upon the basic and primary resources and it explains how the fundamental beliefs of Sikhism were formulated into books. This study revolves around the comparison between Sikhism and Islam. As this religion is strongly inspired by Islam so it has a lot of similarities and dissimilarities with Islam. There is no specific concept of worship in Sikhism, just as there is a clear concept of prayer, fasting, zakat and hajj in Islam. Ironically, the practices and beliefs of Islam that were incorporated in Sikhism by its founder Baba Guru Nanak, were omitted by his successors as if they had nothing to do with Sikhism and the biggest examples of this are alcoholism and veil of women. Most of the rituals in Sikhism are of Hindu style which include marriage, death, cremation, going to gurdwaras and performing rituals etc. And on the basis of this comparative analysis the conclusion is articulated. In short, Sikhism is self-created religion whose teachings are inspired by both Hinduism and Islam
