The religion believes that God is ONE. God is SAT PURUSHA – the Absolute Perfect Being. He is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. Basics of Sikhism | सिक्ख धर्म का आधार | Indian Culture
Thus, his religious preachings tried for a synthesis of two great religions namely Hinduism and Islam. As against the meaningless ceremonies of the Hindus and rigid orthodoxy of the Muslims, his preaching only recognised one omnipotent. God who tolerates and binds all men together. He introduced simplicity in faith and purity of life so that Hindus and Muslims can live together in good will and peace.
The scripture known as Granth containing the hymns and sayings of the Gurus are worshipped in their temples known as Gurudwaras. As the word “Sikh” means “a disciple” the Sikhs practice discipleship. In Sikhism God is conceived as illumination or Jyoti and it attaches great sanctity to Japa or meditation on Divine Jyoti. A Guru is an embodiment of this Jyoti.
