The supreme sacrifice of chaar sahibazade

Char Sahibzade Shaheedi - This is the week we remember the sacrifice of the four young sons. Their sacrifice was within 6 days of each other: The elder two were martyred fighting with a huge Mughal army on December 21st and the younger two were mercilessly walled alive on December 26th. Guru Gobind Singh recited the following shahad in the Machhivara forest while he was separated from his family. Even in such pain, the pain he talks about is the pain of separation from Waheguru, who he calls my “beloved friend” … mittar pyara: 

Mittar Pyare Nu: 

Baba Zorawar Singh Ji and Baba Fateh Singh Ji, the two youngest of the Chaar Sahibzade were told by Wazir Khan, the Nawab of Sirhind to be bricked alive because they refused to become muslims. This event took place on 26th December 1705. Before the Chaar Sahibzade attained Martyrdom, they wew captured and kept in a cold tower called "Thanda Burj" with their grandmother Mata Gujari, in the middle of winter.

They were taken to Fatehgarh Sahib where they had a brick wall built around them but had broken down before the Princes lost their breaths. Wazir Khan then ordered the executioners to slit the throats of the Princes. After hearing this news, their grandmother took her last breath.

The two older Princes, Baba Ajit Singh Ji and Baba Jujhar Singh Ji both fought in the Chamkaur battle, which attained their martyrdom. This is how Guru Gobind Singh Ji lost their four sons and mother.


  1. We bow for the sacrifice of Guru Gobind Singh ji, the 10th and last Guru of Sikhs to sacrifice his 4 sons, his mother and send his own father, 'Guru Teg Bahdur Sahibji', the 9th guru and himself for saving the lives of thousands. One and only one in the whole history. I wish we Sikhs to follow His path to serve for all mankind.🙏
