What is the Hukamnama?
'Hukamnama' is a Persian word meaning a royal decree. In the Sikh context this is considered the Guru's word's of wisdom for the day. Sri Guru Granth Sahib is opened randomly to any page and the shabad on that page becomes the days Hukam (command). This practice dates back to the time when Sri Guru Granth Sahib was first installed in Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in 1604. The daily Hukamnama presented here comes from Sri Guru Granth Sahib at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Amritsar.
