Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Guru Arjan sahib saheedi was the very first saheedi in sikh history. After him, numerous including the Guru sahibs who followed gave up their lives but not their faith.

Guru Arjan Sahib has contributed to the development of Sikhism in numerous ways. Hecompleted the building of the Harimander Sahib, The Adi Granth and contributed the most number or shabads and saloks in the Guru Granth Sahib, the most famous being Sukhmani Sahib.

Gur Arjan Vitoh Kurbani

At the 17th minute in this recording the legendary Bhai Dharam Singh Zakhmi ji explains what shaeed means. No offense to anyone but not every Sikh who dies can be called a shaeed. He goes on to talk about Guru sahib’s life and how he was educated who was instrumental in his upbringing etc..i leave it for you to listen to it yourself for the details.

 Some other compositions of Guru Arjan Sahib

Gun Naad Dhun Anhad Bhed

this composition is a purataan reet said to have been sung in guru sahibs durbar, this composition is sung in the dhrupad ang in chaartal of 12 beats

Mohan Neend Na Aveh Haveh

Again a puratan reet..this is a partal sung in raag bilaval. Guru Ram Das ji and Guru Arjan Sahib ji were 2 guru sahibs who gave us partaals.

With this I would like to end this post

    Definitions change with changing times. As per Zakhmi ji’s definition, Ajit Singh je and Jughar Singh ji may not qualify to be called Saheed. Neither Banda Singh Bhadur and several others may qualify.

    With changing times, Guru Hargobind Singh jee told the sangat to bring gifts of weapons and horses. Today we just matha-teko money or food items.

    Definitions do change and we need to think and act according to the times we are in.

    So you did not like my comment.
    That’s ok. Baba Deep Singh was the other Saheed I wanted to mention.
