Guru Nanak used to say that God is one and his worship is for both Hindu Muslims. Idolatry, polytheism was called unnecessary by Nanak. His views had an impact on both Hindus and Muslims. Guru Nanak Ji said that God dwells in the heart of man, if there are disorders of cruelty, hatred, slander, anger etc. in the heart, then such filthy cannot be ready to sit in the heart of God.

Guru Nanak settled in Kartarpur in the last phase of life. He gave up his body on 25 September 1539. Before his death, he declared his disciple brother Lahna as his successor, who later became known as Guru Angad Dev.
