Dukh Bhanjani Beri (Bibi Rajni)

In the era of Guru Ram Das Ji – there was a revenue collector named Rai Duni Chand. He had 7 daughters and Bibi Rajni was Rai Duni Chand’s youngest daughter. One day all the 7 sisters were sitting together admiring their new dresses, Duni Chand looked at his daughters and asked all ‘Who gave you all these dress and all their gifts.’ All the 6 daughters expect Bibi Rajni said that its their father who give them the gifts but Bibi Rajni observed that all the gifts are ultimately from God. Their father was only an instrument of his greatness.
This was not the first time Biji Rajni said this, she always beleived and worshiped Waheguru. Her father became very angry and married her to a leper, saying that – now he will see how her God will help her lead a normal life. Bibi Rajni accepted her fate and worked very hard to maintain herself and her crippled husband.

She still had full faith on her God and kept repeating God’s name (Simran).
She had to beg for living but she always lovingly bathed, fed and cared her husband.

She use to go to different village to beg, pulling her ill husband in a small cart. One day Bibi Rajni reached the site of a pool on her way to a neighboring village. She left the cart containing her husband by the side of the pool, under the tree and gone off to look for food. In the meantime, her ill husband saw a black crow dip into the pool water and came out white. Amazed at this miracle, Bibi Rajni’s husband crawled up the pool and managed a dip, when he came up he found himself completely cured, he didn’t dip one finger into the pool and kept with leprosy marks, as prrof of his identity.
When Bibi Rajni came back to the pool, she couldn’t find her husband anywhere and became very worried thinking that she lost her husband forever. But then her cured husband came to her and explained her the whole story and also showed his diseased finger. Bibi Rajni and her husband were extemely thankful to God and spend their life happily, always remembering God.

The pool was none else than Dukh Bhanjani Brei – Sri Harminder Sahib(Golden Sahib’s) Sarovar, where Bibi Rajni’s leper husband and many more were cured.

Sakhi shows us that if we have and keep faith in God then one day all rewards are showers on us, we are always blessed by God. Bibi Rajni in every situation, always kept her faith in Guru Ji and God, being happy with whatever she had, thus was rewarded at the end.

Later – Bibi Rajni became mother of seven sons, the eldest was named Bhai Gurmukh, by Guru Ram Das Ji . Guru Ji asked her husband, Bhai Mohan to start trading of clothes, he earned a lot of money and became rich whereas, Bibi Rajni’s father Rai Duni Chand had very big loss in his trade and lived his last days with Bibi Rajni.
