Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Jio,
In the city of Ludhiana, near Ahmedgarh Mandi there is a village called Lehra, from that village there was a teacher named Hushiar Singh who was a very devoted Sikh of Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Maharaj (Rara Sahib Wale). Whenever Hushiar Singh would get the opportunity, he would go to Rara Sahib and enjoy immense peace. Hushiar Singh had but three daughters and no son – within his mind him and his wife had a desire to acquire a son. This is a common thought that comes into the minds of many families who wish to have a son that they can give their belongings to after their death and from whom they can acquire care and money in their old age, as once a daughter is married she has many responsibilities in her in-law home. Both Hushiar Singh and his wife decided that they would ask Sant Ji Maharaj to be blessed with a son.
One who prays for the four cardinal blessings
ਸਾਧ ਜਨਾ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਲਾਗੈ ॥
should commit himself to the service of the Saints.
However, both husband and wife spent a whole week thinking about the opportunity to meet with Sant Ji Maharaj, however due to household responsibilities were unable to. One night, Bibi Gurmel Kaur (Hushiar Singh’s wife) had a dream in which she met with Sant Ji Maharaj and was given a pat on her back. In the dream Sant Ji Maharaj told Gurmel Kaur that her desires have been fulfilled.
ਅੰਤਰ ਕੀ ਬਿਧਿ ਤੁਮ ਹੀ ਜਾਨੀ ਤੁਮ ਹੀ ਸਜਨ ਸੁਹੇਲੇ ॥
You alone know the condition of my inner being. You are my Beautiful Friend.
The next Amritvela, Bibi Gurmel Kaur awoke and after having completed her Nitnem told her husband Hushiar Singh about her dream. Both husband and wife got ready and went to Rara Sahib to meet with Sant Ji Maharaj. They begged Sant Ji Maharaj for the blessing of a son. Sant Ji Maharaj repeated what they had said in the dream. Sant Ji Maharaj told the couple that their desires had been fulfilled and that they were victorious. Sant Ji Maharaj then gave Gurmel Kaur 2 apples and told her to eat them. Within that same year, the couple gave birth to one son and in the following year they gave birth to another. And so, Sant Ji Maharaj listened to the couples Ardas from within and blessed the couples with not one son but two.
ਜੇਵਡੁ ਆਪਿ ਤੇਵਡ ਤੇਰੀ ਦਾਤਿ ॥
As Great as You Yourself are, O Lord, so Great are Your Gifts.
Dhan Sant Ji Maharaj
