Hukam: Literally "divine will."

A decree by a high authority. Can also refer to a passage from the Guru Granth Sahib, selected by randomly opening the Sikh scripture during a daily ceremony. The passage is considered by Sikhs as the divine "command of the Guru". Hukom's are taken for guidance for the day/guidance in specific situations/answer to questions etc.
