Sikhism is almost similar to other Dharmic faiths Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. They all believe in reincarnation.

The purpose of reincarnation is to achieve Mukti or liberation from the cycle of birth and death impelled by the law of Karma. And to achieve Mukti or Moksha in this dark age of Kaliyug where Dharma stands on just one leg, the best and easiest way to get out of the terrifying world ocean is Simran or spiritual contemplation of Dhan Guru Nanak. Sikhs do believe in reincarnation and karmas.

Guru Nanak himself was Akal Purakh WaheGuru. Sikhs' ultimate Guru, Guru Granth Sahib Ji says, 'Jot Roop Har Aap Guru Nanak Kahayio' which means 'The Lord Almighty caused Himself to be called as Guru Nanak'.
