    Yogi allah yaar khan wrote as follows abt guru gobind singh ji while comparing his greatness to some other famous personalities

    Dandak main phire ram to sita thi bagal main,

    (when ram was given exile his wife sita was with her)

    woh fakhre jahan hind ki mata thi bagal main,

    (Hindustan or hindus or ism which claims to be the oldest civilazation in this world, her mother sita was with him, well the poet actually is saying that what was this exile if compared to the king of kings guru gobind singh ji’s life, the tenth master cared for humanity not his family, friends or peers, his whole life was an exile starting from the age of 9 when he himself sacrificed his father by saying that who else can save hindu or ism, )

    Lachman(Laxman) sa biradar bhaye takhsine jigar tha,

    (brother like laxman was with him, here the poet is referring to the tenth master guru gobind singh ji,in machiwara where he was all by himself after sacrificing his sons,while the poet points that ram(lord rama or god) wept when laxman lost consciousness and regained consciousness after hanuman brought sanjiwani butti, while my satguru the tenth master in machiwara when he lost everything : his anandpur,his family including his 4 sons(sahebzadaas), his mother mata gujri ji, his army, and barefooted rendered friendless and helpless he never lost courage. In the jungles of Machhiwara, barefoot and hungry, he remained firm and sang a merry song: he is not even complaining but saying:
    "O give Him this news of me,
    Without You O Lord, the luxury of soft beds is full of pain and discomfort,
    Pleasures of palaces are like living among snakes,
    The thorns that prick my feet are now my flask for drink.
    The dagger that is pursuing me is my cup, O Lord.
    Without Thy grace O Lord, comforts are nothing but a butcher's knife.
    The bed on the ground is heaven to me, Lord, if Thou art with me,
    Burnt be the rich dwellings. they are hell to me if I forget Thee."

    Sach kehta hoon gobind ka rutba hi digar ha,

    (I swear that the status of guru gobind singh ji is unique, here the poet is referring to the greatness of guru gobind singh ji, he says that no prophet has appeared in this world who made his disiciples sit on throne , here the poet refers from guru gobind singh ji’s words

    "Khalsa mero roop hai khaas.
    The Khalsa is my complete image

    Khalse maih hau karo nivaas.
    I dwell in the khalsa

    Khalsa mero mukh hai ang-aa.
    Khalsa is my chief organ

    Khalse ke hau sadh sadh sang-aa.
    I am always with the khalsa

    Khalsa mero mitr sakhaa-ee
    Khalsa is my closest friend

    Khalsa maat pitaa sukhdaa-ee
    Khalsa is my mother, father & source of all comforts.

    Khalsa meri jaat ar pat.
    Khalsa is my caste & creed.

    Khalsa sau maa kau utapat.
    My creation is through the khalsa

    Khalsa mero bhavan bhand-aa-raa.
    I dwell in the khalsa who is a storehouse of all my requirements.

    Khalse kar mero satk-aa-raa.
    I am honoured because of the khalsa.

    Khalsa mero pind par-aan.
    Khalsa is my body & breath.

    Khalsa meri jaan ki jaan.
    Khalsa is my life & soul

    Khalsa mera satgur poor-aa
    Khalsa is my full-fledged Guru.

    Khalsa mera sajan soor-aa.
    Khalsa is my brave friend.

    Khalsa mero budh ar giaan.
    Khalsa is my wisdom & knowledge.

    Khalse ka hau dhar-au dhiaan.
    I always contemplate the khalsa prayerfully

    Upmaa khalsae jaath na kahi
    Eulogy of the khalsa is beyond me.

    Jihv-aa ek paar nah lahi.
    I cannot fathom full praise of the khalsa with one tongue.

    Ya mai ranch na mithe-aa bhaakh-ee.
    I certify that I have not mis-stated anything in the foregoing.

    Paarbrahm gur Nanak saak-ee.
    God & Guru Nanak are my witnesses to endorse the foregoing truth

    Katwa diye sheesh shaam ne geeta ko suna kar,

    (hindu god krishan made brothers fight with brothers, i.e kaurava and pandavas by giving updesh(discourse) of geeta quote from geeta which poet quotes “yada yada hi dharmasya galani bharvati bharata, abhyuthanam adharamsaya tada tanam srija mahayam”,”whenever there is a decay of righteousness,O Bharata, and a rise of unrighteousness, then I manifest myself in every age”
    while guru gobind singh ji said “main hoon param purakh ko dasa dekhan aayo jagat tamasha” , “mau ko parmeswar jo uchare te sab narak kund main jaaye”
    "Those who call me God, will fall into the deep pit of hell.
    Regard me as one of his slaves and have no doubt whatever about it.
    I am a servant of the Supreme Being;
    and have come to behold the wonderful drama of life."

    He led by example, sacrificed his father(hind ki chadar guru tegh bahadur saheb ji), his four sons, his anandpur, everything he had)

    Rooh phuk di gobind ne aulaad katakar

    (guru gobind singh ji immolated his soul by sacrificing his sons but still lived for khalsa and complained to none)

    If we take away Dasam Granth, we loose the Miri of Khalsahood. If you're Sikh and you care, then one should not become anti-dasam granth or anti- Guru Gobind Singh, anti- Khalsahood, anti-sahibzaaday, anti-panth.
