Thank you all,

The Sikh religion and worship and other rites and worship is a mix of

multiple and diverse sources, including Islamic and Hindu them,

including Christian baptism, including social customs and traditions

inherited or imported, but in any event they constitute a group of

people today have beliefs and concepts and their privacy, as well as

acting aggressively toward Muslims, and less aggressive than their

compatriots over the Hindus, who constitute a special and distinct about twenty million soldiers.


What is important when Sikhs, after his book "The Grant", is the so-


called K five, a five Sanskrit words into Arabic is difficult to transfer

to the principle of the five K, because the word is different. This is

enough for Congress to Goran Gobindsing, has coincided with the

system surreptitiously Kalsa, a system of brotherhood among Sikhs,

which unites aspects of the obligations of the Sikh religious, social and military.

K. five insist on compliance, as spelled out by Fawzi, Narendra, are:


1- bag Kesh: Poetry and means must be preserved, which belongs to the Sikh brotherhood Kalsa. When the hair and beard must be called not tell him anything.

2- trigger Kangha: a comb and carry every one of the Sikhs, an unnecessary head hair and beard long hours for demobilized by necessity, when he wishes.

3- Akashi Kaccha: short trousers does not exceed the knee, which is more like a military Schori.

4- Kara Kara: steel bracelet every Sikh places if it involves disobedience towards the right hand, is more like what they think they have Exorcist away evil and harm them.

5- Kirby Kirpan: steel dagger, or tidal, Eetmntk that killed every man of the Sikhs, and it seems that this is inherent in their personality based on the philosophy of military force, which originally Goran Gobindsing.

And they have not committed to each of these five qualifier in K become Patit any apostate, but who did not purifies himself as never before rites and abide by these things Atwah opportunities to get close to adhere to these five K gradually and one of them called «adapted slow».

All other temples scattered outside India, particularly in Britain are called Gorduara (Gurdwara), meaning the gate to Gore.

There is no system of clerical when Sikhs, but adults of both sexes


who are reviving the religious ceremonies and rites including the

performance of songs and songs in their prayers and other

occasions, and rites of various assets is the mismatch of Hindu

origin, including what is of Islamic origin, and another source of Christian baptism for example, .

This is very different from clothing worn in western nations in which there is no particular meaning given to clothing that is worn other than trends in fashion and what is popular at any particular time. This is just another example of how different cultures are around the world and I'm just glad that I don't live in a nation that has a dress code. I've always thought that making a woman dress from head to toe in a black garment that traps the heat when it's already 120 degrees is completely irrational.
Thank you, but this is simply not true. Muslim women does not hurt

to wear the veil, which it is comfortable and protected, simply, the

essence of our women do not reveal them only when her husband

and her father, only brothers and uncles and turbans.

Did you like jewel, which was exposed to indecent and harm, I think


no one like that ..

The veil does not cause heat and narrow as I said earlier, but is


protected from everything ..

That says it is true, it is not all that particular Muslims, but this

person missed doing that. As all people make mistakes, as does the

West in Iraq now .. Fault affects punished, and punished if the king

did ..

That is a yarmulke (aka skullcap), which comes in a variety of shapes & styles... there is much significance to them, but mostly it is to show reverence to G-d, by separating yourself from Him (with the cap). What the original poster is describing, however, sounds like a Sikh cap - NOT Muslim, although they are often mistaken for each other. Like this, right?
