The Guru Granth Sahib [Guru Granth Sahib: Primal collection of Sikh Scriptures, compiled by Guru Arjan and given its final form by Guru Gobind Singh. ] is given the same respect that was shown to the human Gurus during their lifetimes.
Most Sikhs do not own a copy of the Guru Granth Sahib because of the difficulty of showing it the proper respect. Most Sikh families have a copy of the Dasam Granth (poetry written by Guru Gobind Singh and not included in the Guru Granth Sahib) or the sacred Nit nem (a prayer book) at home.
