Jaap Sahib is the Bani (set of hymns) uttered by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the Tenth Sikh Guru.. It is one of the Five Banis recited by most practising Sikhs each morning and the Bani that the Panj Pyare recite while preparing Amrit on the occasion of Amrit Sanchaar (Sikh Initiation), a ceremony held to admit initiates into the Khalsa Brotherhood. It is the second Bani of the five in the daily morning prayer routine of a Sikh. Bibi Gurdev Kaur OBE has recited this Bani in her melodious voice.
The language of Jaap, is close to the classical (languages of India) with words and compounds drawn from Sanskrit, Brij Bhasha and even Arabic and Persian. The contents of Jaap Sahib, are divided into various Chhands bearing the name of the related meter according to the then prevalent system of prosody in India.
Guru Gobind Singh was a worshipper of one God (Akaal) this is proved by the first stanza of Jaap sahib. Guru Gobind Singh ji completed this Bani before 1699, because this Bani was recited during the installation of the khalsa. Professor Sahib Singh says that, " Guru Gobind SIngh went to Nahan in 1684 and lived there for approximately 3 years. During these three years guru Sahib may have composed the Jaap Sahib, the Swaiyey and the Akal Ustat.
Jaap Sahib is made up of 199 verses and is a rhythmic hymn composed like a necklace of pearls and gems, beauteously arranged around a string: the string is the Supreme God; the pearls and gems are His attributes, excellences, and glories. The glories sung by Guru Sahib revolve around God Who is metaphysical , beyond time, Eternal, Unborn, Uncreated, Self-existant, and withour form, feature, colour or contour. Therefore, neither can God be described or depicted, nor can anyone make an image or idols of that which is undefinable. God's manifestations are universally pervasive. God cannot be confined to any particular place, land, country, religion, race, garb, body or name. God is the Creator of the Universe and the laws governing it. Never can anyone be outside the ambit of these laws nor can anyone have the power to oppose them. God's Law and Justice is Righteous and Ultimate. God's is pervasive in all that 'He' has created, yet God also extends beyond 'His' creations; God is thus Immanent in His Creation and at the same time Transcends it. God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient; nothing, whether good or evil, can happen outside of the Creator's Will; God is the Creator-Sustainer-Annuller of His Creation. God is the Life of life, the Death of death, the Darkness of darkness and the Light of light.
