Taajudin's Diary

Postby IJJSingh » Fri Aug 03, 2018 7:28 pm

In the year 1510 AD, Taajudin Naqshbandi, a Persian/Arabic writer met Guru Nanak Dev ji during his journey through the Middle East. For the next two years, Taajudin lived with the Guru and kept a detailed eyewitness account in a manuscript titled Siyahto Baba Nanak Fakir. After taking a leave from Guru ji, Taajudin deposited the manuscript in a library in Medina.

In the year 1927, Mushtaq Hussein a young man from Kashmir, while studying as a moulvi in Medina came across Taajudin's manuscript. The manuscript changed Mushtaq's life, and he converted to Sikhism and went on to become famous as Sant Syed Prithipal Singh. While in the Middle East, Mushtaq visited several places built in the memory of the Guru and spoke to Arabs who were still Guru ji's Sikhs. The book ‘Taajudin’s Diary’ is based on the unpublished autobiography of Sant Ji. The book retraces the transformational journeys of Taajudin and Mushtaq Hussein following in the footsteps of the great Guru. This remarkable must-read book references historical documents and monuments little-known in Sikhism. The appendices in this book also contain information on lesser-known travels of Guru Ji in Nepal and Himalayas.

I jave just finished reading this book. It is the best book on sikhism I have ever read. It documents the path of a muslim searching for waheguru and becoming a sikh on his way. Everyone please read it - you will be transformed too.

Like he says in this book that it is priceless to a true seeker and worthless to everyone else who are happy with their daily, repetitive lives. You read and hear the sikh stories of the gurus and think they are for children and don't pay much attention to them but here is documented proof of their validity hidden in the arab world where the arab sikhs are afraid to show their faith to other arabs. Here it is explained that Guru Nanak IS waheguru and not a prophet, this makes sikhism the ultimate religion/path.

Be inspired.
