    If someone has committed thousands of murders, looted from the poor and sinned considerably do they still have hope to become one with God?

    Thx in advance!

    Dear Singh Ji,

    The answer to your question is YES. There are plenty of references in AGGS about the salvation of, Ganika (Prostitute), Ajamal (Known sinner), Elephant, and Ugly hunch back by remembering Akal Purkh. Here are few references;

    ਅਜਾਮਲੁ ਪਾਪੀ ਜਗੁ ਜਾਨੇ ਨਿਮਖ ਮਾਹਿ ਨਿਸਤਾਰਾ ॥

    Ajāmal pāpī jag jāne nimakẖ māhi nisṯārā.

    Ajaamal, known throughout the world as a sinner, was redeemed in an instant.------Guru Teg Bahadur, Raag Sorath, AGGS, Page, 632-7

    ਅਜਾਮਲ ਗਜ ਗਨਿਕਾ ਪਤਿਤ ਕਰਮ ਕੀਨੇ ॥

    Ajāmal gaj ganikā paṯiṯ karam kīne.

    Ajaamal, the elephant, and the prostitute committed many sins,-----Bhagat Kabir, Raag Dhanasari, AGGS, Page, 692-13

    ਤਾਰੀਲੇ ਗਨਿਕਾ ਬਿਨੁ ਰੂਪ ਕੁਬਿਜਾ ਬਿਆਧਿ ਅਜਾਮਲੁ ਤਾਰੀਅਲੇ ॥

    Ŧārīle ganikā bin rūp kubijā bi▫āḏẖ ajāmal ṯārī▫ale.

    You saved the prostitute, and the ugly hunch-back; You helped the hunter and Ajaamal swim across as well.------Bhagat Namdev, Raag Gauri Cheti, AGGS, Page, 345-4


    ਮੂਏ ਹੂਏ ਜਉ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਦੇਹੁਗੇ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਜਾਨੈ ਕੋਇਲਾ ॥

    Mū▫e hū▫e ja▫o mukaṯ ḏehuge mukaṯ na jānai ko▫ilā.

    If You liberate me after I am dead, no one will know that I am liberated.----Bhagat Namdev, Raag Malar, AGGS, Page, 1292-15

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
