Guru Granth Sahib is collection of Hymyns [ Shabads] which was said by 10 Gurus of Sikh Religion [ Gurubani].

The compilation of Guru Granth Sahib Is done in three stages which are-

Standardization of Shabds.

As there are many small books which consist Gurubani’s named as Pothi. There are also Mal-quotation of these pothis. The son of 5th guru Arujun devi ji Written his own hymyns and preach as writing of Shri Guru NanakJi. And to preserve the authenticity of Shabads, Guru Arjun Devji know that the authentic Pothis were Needed. Which was with Bhai Mohan son of 3rd Guru Amar Das. But it is not Easy to Retrive the pothis as Guru Amar Das handover Guruship to Guru Ram Das instead of his son. But after So much darma Mohan has to surrender pothis to Guru Arjun Dev ji.

Compilation Of Guru Granth Sahib.

Then the Compilation of Pothis and Shabad Began. The shabads are to be filtered from the words of imposter. For this Guru Arjun Devji Suggested his helpers that “Even in a great herd of cows and calves, the mother cow will recognize the cry of her calf, above all others. Just so, the True Shabad resonates truly, and is easily distinguished from the false.” Not only that Guru Arju added many of his great words including 36 saints from Hinduism and Islam. Some of them are  Kabir Ji, Ravi Das Ji, Naam Dev Ji, Trilochan Ji, and Sheikh Farid Ji. He also left some blank pages and said that one of the next gurus will fill that words when right time comes[ which was filled by 9th guru, Guru Teg Bahadur.
