The present study is mainly concerned with Sikhism which has close affinity with Islam and Indian religious traditions. These religious traditions provided an intellectual environment for the origin and growth of Sikhism. Whatever the concept of man has been developed by Guru Nanak and other contributors of Sri Guru Granth Sahib has some relevance with Islam and Indian traditions. For this reason it would be desirable to make mention of the concept of man which was held in Islam at that time. Secondly, the concept of man advocated in the Vedic tradition has also been partially accepted in Sikh theology but it has been transformed with some modifications. Sikh concept of man has been evolved out of this cultural milieu which was provided by Islam and Indian theistic traditions.
