1563 - Guru Arjan Dev

Guru Arjan (15 April 1563 – 30 May 1606) was the fifth Sikh Guru. He compiled writings of earlier Gurus to create the Guru Granth Sahib. He was born in Goindval, Punjab the youngest son of Guru Ram Das and Mata Bhani, the daughter of Guru Amar Das.

Guru Arjan led Sikhism for a quarter of a century. He completed the construction of Harimandir Sahib at Amritsar, after the fourth Sikh Guru founded the town and built a pool. He installed Adi Granth, the first edition of the Sikh scripture, in the Harimandir Sahib.[4]

Guru Arjan  suggested that the Sikhs donate, if possible, one tenth of their income, goods or service to the Sikh organization (dasvand).  The dasvand financed the building of gurdwaras and langars.

Guru Arjan was arrested under the orders of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir and asked to convert to Islam. He refused, was tortured and executed in 1606 CE. Shaheedi Divas of Guru Arjan is organized every year on 16 June, according to the Nanakshahi calendar released by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee in 2003.
