Naam and Hukam lead to Waheguru(God)

Waheguru (God) is neither Naam nor Hukam.

Naam and Hukam are doors / indicators to connect with God (Waheguru).

Naam leads to God (Waheguru):-

ਨਾਮ ਸੰਗਿ ਜਿਸ ਕਾ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ॥ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਨਹਿ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥੩॥ (Raag Gauri M. 5, GGS. 281-11).
One whose mind accepts/recognizes the Naam, Says Nanak, Naam leads to the
Immaculate Lord. ||3||

Hukam:-

ਹੁਕਮਿ ਮੰਨਿਐ ਹੋਵੈ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ਤਾ ਖਸਮੈ ਕਾ ਮਹਲੁ ਪਾਇਸੀ ॥ (Raag Asa M. 1, GGS.
471-13).
Obeying the Order of God’s Will, one becomes acceptable to obtaining the Divine
connectivity.

Hukami is God/Waheguru:-

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਚਲਾਏ ਰਾਹੁ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਵਿਗਸੈ ਵੇਪਰਵਾਹੁ ॥੩॥(Guru Nanak Jap Ji Sahib, GGS.
2-2).
Waheguru (God) leads the creation as He wills and pleases.

Guru Nanak Sahib makes it known that God houses His Creation. Therefore God is
total sum of His Creation:-

ਜਿਨਿ ਕੀਆ ਤਿਨਿ ਦੇਖਿਆ ਆਪੇ ਜਾਣੈ ਸੋਇ ॥ Raag Maroo M. 1, GGS.1093-10).
He who created the creation, watches over it; He Himself knows.

ਕਿਸ ਨੋ ਕਹੀਐ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਜਾ ਘਰਿ ਵਰਤੈ ਸਭੁ ਕੋਇ ॥੨॥
Unto whom should I speak, O Nanak, when everything is contained within God ?
||2||

So Hukami, Hukam and Naam are interrelated but not the same.

With Waheguru’s blessings.
