Gurudwara Shri Gani Khan Nabi Khan Sahib, Machiwara


GURDWARA SRI GANI KHAN NABHI KHAN SAHIB is situated in the Machiwara Town of Ludhiana Distt. This holy land of Machiwara Sahib was once touched by Sarbansdani SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI came here from Gulabe & Punjabe's house. Gani Khan Nabi Khan went and requested SATGURU JI to come to their house & bless them. Gani Khan Nabi Khan noticed that there were too many informers roaming around, so they requested that if GURU SAHIB can come in a blue dress, then it would be easy for them to serve. A dyer was called upon and GURU SAHIB asked him to color His clothes. The dyer told GURU SAHIB the clothes are dyed when the matti (A large earthen pot) is fully prepared and it takes 3 days time to get that prepared after putting color in it. GURU SAHIB told that the matti is already prepared, and he was amazed to see the matti was boiling. The dyer got sure that He is a Hermit of GOD & he should ask for something for himself. After coloring the clothes, he presented it in GURU SAHIB's feet, the dyer stood with folded hands in front of GURU SAHIB. GURU SAHIB wanted to pay something in return for coloring the clothes but the dyer refused to take it. GURU SAHIB asked him that what does he want ? The dyer requested that GURU SAHIB i don't have any child, kindly bless me. The second request is that i am unable to earn enough for a living, not able to pay off the debt from money earned by color, Kindly bless me. GURU SAHIB replied that the matti in which you have colored my clothes, you need not add any color into it from now onward. think of any color in your heart and dip the clothes, the clothes will be colored with that color. Keep the matti covered and donot tell this secret to anyone. GURUDWARA SRI CHAUBARA SAHIB exists on that place which is around 500 yards from this place. Gani Khan Nabi Khan requested that even they donot have any child, to which GURU SAHIB said that your service has already been accepted & whatever blessings were given are listed in the HUKAMNAMA. DASHMESH PITA stayed at this place for 2 days and 2 nights. From this place, GURU SAHIB along with Gani Khan, Nabi Khan, Bhai Daya Singh Ji, Bhai Dharam Singh Ji, Bhai Maan Singh Ji went to GURUDWARA SRI KIRPAN BHET SAHIB in a Palang (Bed), which is about 2 kms away from this place, going through GURUDWARA SRI KATANA SAHIB via village Rampura Kanech went towards Alamgir.

Note: SHRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI, while accepting the service of Gani Khan Nabi Khan, gave this HUKAMNAMA to him at GURUDWARA SHRI ALAMGIR SAHIB. The photocopy of the same has been kept at GURUDWARA SHRI GANI KHAN NABI KHAN.
