Q: Give Prophecies in Sikhism not taken from the other religions that have come true. Or will in the future. With proof for stories that are not well documented.

A: The Guru's rejected the use of miracles and prophecies to win converts. They insisted that the message should speak for itself. Although Sikh history is filled with amazing miracles, they were not done for show purposes or to impress. Sree Guru Granth Sahib is not a book of prophecies, it is a scripture that leads one to realisation of God and inspires love. At the same time, there is one very obvious prophecy in Sree Guru Granth Sahib that did indeed take place, which is the fall of Babar's Mughal Empire. While speaking out against the Mughal atrocities, Guru Nanak says the following:

ang 722

aavan athuthurai jaan suthaanuvai hor bhee outhusee murudh kaa chaelaa
Coming in seventy-eight (1521 A.D.), they will depart in ninety-seven (1540 A.D.), and then another disciple of man will rise up.

such kee baanee naanuk aakhai such sunaaeisee such kee baelaa
Nanak speaks the Word of Truth; he proclaims the Truth at this, the right time. ||2||3||5||

Humayun, Babar's successor was indeed driven out by Sher Shah in the year 1540AD. So as you can see, the Gurus did make a prophecy, but unlike other scriptures, Sree Guru Granth Sahib is solely a spiritual guide for the discovery of God.
