Guru Nanak (also known as Guru Baba Nanak Shah) was the founder of Sikhism. The founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, recognised him as a holy man, but claimed Nanak had not intended to found a new religion, but had in fact been a Sufi Muslim. Born to a Muslim family, Nanak ascribed to monotheism, is recorded to have traveled to the Islamic holy sites on the Arabian peninsula including the Kaba at Mecca and regularly referenced the Quran in his teachings. Moreover, verses of the Quran and the Kalima were embroidered into Nanak's "chola" (coat).
