After early morning Nitnem (Daily prayers- rituals), Hukam is taken - (Order of the day ) - the reading of a Hymn from Guru Granth Sahib (the Scipture of Sikhism), which is important for a Sikh to keep in mind while engaged in daily chores. This is followed by Shabad Vee-chaar, i.e, explaining of the Hymn and then recitation of Shabad Keertan ( singing of the hymns) and finally the morning session of the religious services ends with Ardaas - a prayer (with focus on God).
