Ambarsaria Ji,

Interesting note: in one of Giani Maskeen Ji's katha's he mentions that there is some reference to Sassi Punnu in Gurbani and its actually APPROVED to be sung as keertan... (I'll have to dig and find that katha, unless you already know of the reference) just b/c the love between the two of them was so exalted, so divine... akin to the love one should feel towards God.
I thought it was pretty cool. japposatnamwaheguru:
...or maybe it was layla majnun... hmmm... gotta go dig

Aman Singh ji it is not in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. It is in Bhai Gurdas ji's Vaaran as follows,


Vaar 27

So not Gurbani.


Sat Sri Akal.

PS: Intriguing questions follows as to how could Bhai Gurdas ji write about Sohni Mahiwal when Sohni was born way past the death of Bhai Gurdas ji?

Bhai Gurdas (1551 – 25 August 1636) was a Punjabi Sikh writer, historian, preacher and religious figure. He was the original scribe of the Guru Granth Sahib<sup id="cite_ref-s_0-0">[1]</sup> and a companion of four of the Sikh Gurus.

2. Sohni Born in 1700+ (AD)

Around the 18th c. (late Mughal period), the beautiful girl Sohni was born to a potter named Tulla (Toolha). They were from the Kumhar caste, and lived in Gujrat town (in present-day Pakistan). At the time, Gujrat, on the river Chenab, was a caravanserai on the trade route between Bukhara and Delhi.
As Sohni grew up, she helped her father decorate his pots. Their shop is said to have been near Rampyari Mahal by the river.<sup id="cite_ref-2">[3]</sup> As soon as the Surahis (water-pitchers) and mugs came off the wheel, she would draw artistic designs on them and set them up for sale.

3. Laila Majnu is OK to be referred as from in 700+ (AD)


4. Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai (also referred to by the honorifics Lakhino Latif, Latif Ghot, Bhittai, and Bhitt Jo Shah) (1689 – 1752)

5. It is possible that the folklores existed way before the writings!
