Today Marks Janam Dihara (Birthday) of Baba Jujhar Singh Ji, second son of Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaaj. ⚔️❤️🙏🏻

ਜਬ ਫ਼ਤਹ ਗਜਾ ਕਰ ਗਏ ਜੁਝਾਰ ਥੇ ਰਨ ਮੇਂ ।
ਹਰ ਸ਼ੇਰ, ਬਘੇਲਾ ਨਜ਼ਰ ਆਨੇ ਲਗਾ ਬਨ ਮੇਂ ।

(Thread)
Sahibzaada Jujhar Singh Ji was born to Mata Jito ji, at Anandpur Sahib.
Just like Baba Ajit Singh Ji, Baba Jujhar Singh Ji started training in the fighting skills and Gatka as soon as Baba Ji gained senses. Baba Ji started Learning Gurbani and History when aged about 4 to 5 years.
Baba Jujhar Singh Ji took Amrit at Anandpur Sahib in 1699, when he was aged 8 years old.
When Guru Maharaaj decided to leave Anandpur Sahib in December, Baba Jujhar Singh, nearing the completion of his fifteenth year, was an experienced young warrior, strong and fearless.
The battle at Chamkaur had started. Mughal forces of approximately 10 lakh had begun a siege of the Garhi and surrounding areas. As Sikhs ran out of ammunition and arrows, the Sikhs inside split themselves into batches
Batches of five each who would go out one after the other to engage the besiegers in hand-to-hand combat.
Jujhar Singh led the last batch of Sikhs in the battle field, towards the end of the day
When Baba Ajit Singh ji attained Shaheedi, Guru Sahib roared a Jaikara full of emotions and courage - a salutation to the Almighty for the blessing of such a brave and noble son.
Then Guru Ji looked at Baba Jhujhar Singh Ji.
Baba Jhujhar Singh Ji was already ready to go in field to fight. He got His Father's Sign.
Bhai Sahib writes this situation...
ਸ਼ਾਹਜ਼ਾਦਾ-ਏ-ਜੁਝਾਰ ਨੇ ਫ਼ੌਰਨ ਕਹਾ ਅੱਬਾ ।
ਮੈਂ ਭਾਈਯੋਂ ਸੇ ਕਯੋਂ ਰਹੂੰ ਘਟ ਕਰ ਭਲਾ ਅੱਬਾ ।
Baba Ji asked Guru Sahib, "Permit me, dear father, to go where my brother has gone. I shall prove worthy of you. I shall die fighting, with my face towards the enemy, with the Naam on my lips and the Guru in my heart"
Guru Sahib embraced him and said, "Go my son and wed the life-giving bride, Death. May the Almighty be with you always"
Guru Sahib gave blessings to Baba Jujhar Singh.
Bhai Himmat Singh and Bhai Sahib Singh (two of the Panj Pyare) along with 3 other Singhs accompanied Sahibzada Jujhar Singh Ji. The Mughals were shocked at what they saw. To the enemy, it looked as if Ajit Singh had come back.
To them this appeared like a repeat of the same disaster that had befallen them an hour or two ago. They had not even had time to recover from the previous shock and now they had a second wave of the same enormously vibrant energy.
This time the enemy was driven even further back; many just took flight as they thought that the Sikh numbers must have increased and so many of the enemy deserted the battlefield. This new force of six Khalsa soldiers killed many hundreds of the enemy; many simply ran away.
Guru Ji watched with gratefulness to the Almighty. He knew the Sikhs had learned the lessons of warfare well and would soon join the many hundreds of Sikh martyrs who had attained the highest honour of Dharam. The Almighty had indeed blessed the Sahibzade and the Sikhs.
Slowly, due to the huge number of the enemy, they eventually assembled around Baba Jujhar Singh. He was now surrounded and had a Neja (spear) in his hand. Wherever the Neja hit, the enemy was destroyed.
He also used a Khanda with which he killed the enemy as a farmer mows down his crop. Guru sahib saw that Jujhar Singh was being surrounded and the opportunity to kill the Mughal soldiers was decreasing. For over 2 hours the Khalsa unit had continued to desolate the enemy
Baba Ji eventually attained Shaheedi but died a hero's death in the fight against tyranny and falsehood.
ਸੂਰਾ ਸੋ ਪਹਿਚਾਨੀਐ ਜੁ ਲਰੈ ਦੀਨ ਕੇ ਹੇਤ ॥
He alone is known as a spiritual hero, who fights in defense of religion.

ਪੁਰਜਾ ਪੁਰਜਾ ਕਟਿ ਮਰੈ ਕਬਹੂ ਨ ਛਾਡੈ ਖੇਤੁ ॥੨॥
He may be cut apart, piece by piece, but he never leaves the field of battle.
This was truly a sign of a dedicated warrior! By the time Baba Jujhar Singh had attained Shaheedi nightfall had arrived and the moon could be seen in the sky.

Dhan Dhan Baba Jujhar Singh Ji 🙏🏻❤️

JUST MY OPINION:
I've seen alot of people here attacking apne for not following SIKHI (as it should be followed), rather than making him/her understand what wrong he/she's doing and how he/she can make it right.
We're no one to make the person fall in love with sikhi, it's all Guru Mahraaj's Kirpa. All we can do is share our history, experiences, what we've learnt in our journey in Sikhi to him/her and help making him/her understand the rehat and how he/she can make things
Right rather than straight away attacking him/her. I might have also quoted someone's tweet and mocked him/her for his views towards sikhi rather than making the person understand why it might be wrong.

Today is the Shaheedi Diharra of Bhai Subegh Singh Ji & Bhai Shahbaz Singh Ji. The sacrifice of this father-son is remembered by everyone in their Ardas everyday.

"ਜਿਹਨਾਂ ਸਿੰਘਾਂ ਸਿੰਘਣੀਆਂ ਨੇ ਧਰਮ ਹੇਤ ਸੀਸ ਦਿੱਤੇ ਬੰਦ ਬੰਦ ਕਟਾਏ ਖੋਪਰੀਆਂ ਲਹਾਈਆਂ ਚਰਖੜੀਆਂ ਤੇ ਚੜ੍ਹੇ ਧਰਮ ਨਹੀਂ ਹਾਰਿਆ.." ❤️⚔️🙏🏻
"To the Singh and Singhnis who sacrificed their head for the faith, chopped limb by limb, scalped alive and got onto the breaking wheel…"
ਜਬ ਆਵ ਕੀ ਅਉਧ ਨਿਦਾਨ ਬਨੈ
ਅਤਿ ਹੀ ਰਨ ਮੈ ਤਬ ਜੂਝ ਮਰੋ।।

When the end of my life comes,
then I may die fighting in the battlefield.
