Kabir Sahib At Sultanpur lodhi in 1496.
Ravinder Nath Tagore, famous historian Urvashi Surti, Muhammed Hedayetullah and others historians have established Kabir Sahib'S life span from 1440-1518.Thanks them for removing doubts about Kabir Sahib'S birth. The writing of "Gauri Bawan Akhri Kabir Jio" have clarified and solved all problems regarding Kabir Sahib's stay in this physical world.Undoubtly, he stayed in this world from 1440-1518.The rival historians have extended this life span from 1398(samvat 1455)-1518 so that Kabir sahib's meeting with swami Ramanand can be justified.Kabir Sahib was Muslim (reference Holy page No. 1291 of SGGS. In this holy Shabad Bhagat Ravidas Sahib left no doubt that Kabir Sahib was a muslim.Kabir Sahib himself confirmed--" Maat Pita Bin Baal Na Hoi---" Holy page No.872 of SGGS, that a person can not take birth without parents.(Gond Kabir Jio).But the rival historians made so-called widow Brahmin as his mother but they do not disclose the name of Kabir Sahib'S worthy father.This is a totally strange story. Reality is something else which is described for your kind information.
The name of the respected father of Kabir Sahib is Nur Ali(hi is generally called Niru because he works with water(Neer)(Reference Kabir-The Apostle of Hindu-Muslim Unity, by Muhammed Hedayatullah, published by Motilal Banasi Dass-Delhi-Varanasi-Allahbad,confrmed by "Kabir-Jivan Aur Darshan" by Urvashi Surati, published by Lokbharti Prakashan,15-A, Mahatma Gandhi Marg,Allahbad-I). The name of his respected mother is Nima.("Kabir-The Weaver's song" written by Vinay Dharwadker, published by Penguin Books,2003.)
As regards the guru of Kabir Sahib,many historians have taken the name of swami Ramanand.Undoubtly, he is a Holy man, but the reality is given by Sri guru Granth Sahib Ji. "Nama Chhimba Kabir Julaha Pure gur Te Pai---" holy Page No.67 of SGGS.This means his Guru must believed in one God.The worldly Guru of Kabir is Shaikh.Many historians have described that he may be Shaikh Taki (reference Muhammed Hedayatullah and noted Sikh historians Max Arthur Mecaulife and Bhai Kahan Singh Nabha).All the three historians have almost reached reality, but the absolute reality is given by a reference given by another historian, named Urvashi Surti.She wrote on page 33 of Kabir-Jivan Aur Darshan that Kabir Sahib met Satguru Nanak Sahib in Samvat1553(A.D 1496 correspondingly).The absolute reality which has come into limelight is as follows--
Satguru Guru Nanak Sahib ji was in Sultanpur Lodhi in 1496.(reference Sikh Itihas, by Dr. Ganda Singh). Nawab Daulat Khan Lodhi has allotted some rooms to the modi ,Satguru Nanak Sahib.A room was used by the Almighty satguru and the rest were used by other guests and saints which used to come to meet Satguru Nanak Sahib. The family of the Great Satguru used to live with Bebe Nanaki Ji.Kabir Sahib reached Pakpatten which was called Ajodhan at that time, via Saharanpur,Delhi. Dhaulpur from Kanshi.He was to see his Guru Kwaja Shaikh Muhammed,respected father of Shaikh Braham(Ibrahim).Kwaja Shaikh Muhammed was on the "Gaddi"of Shaikh Farid at that time. Kwaja Shaikh Muhammed visited Kashi and Gorakhpur in 1480 and became the Guru of Kabir Sahib at age of almost 40 years.After visiting the Dera of his Guru at Pakpattan, Kabir Sahib came to Sultanpur Lodhi and Stayed with Satguru Nanak Sahib near Hat Sahib.According to the historian, he stayed almost one month at Sultanpur Lodhi and composed Gauri "Bawan Akhari" in Gurmukhi. Gurmukhi was started by Guru Nanak Sahib when he wrote "Pati" . Satguru Nanak Sahib told Kabir Sahib that the former is going to start Gurmukhi characters. Earlier, Punjabi was written in Shahmukhi characters.Kabir Sahib called Satguru Nanak Sahib as Khalsa. He composed a Shabad "Kahai Kabir Jan Bhai Khalsey Prem Bhagat(i) Jih Jani------" Holy page No.657 of SGGS.In this Holy Shabad Kabir Sahib has confirmed that the Khalsa that is Satguru Nanak Sahib has taken birth in this universe which will know the devotion and Bhagati of love.
