Question

One of the qualities of Guru Nanak Dev Ji was treating people with equality and respect despite they are poor or have small jobs.

Which story from Guru Nanak's life is a testament to this statement?
  1. Taking asylum in a carpenter's house.
  2. Claims of Hindu and Muslim being equal.
  3. Fighting for women's rights.
  4. Story of solving the water scarcity problem in Kandahar.


Solution

The correct option is A Taking asylum in a carpenter's house.
Malik Bhago, the town chief, had invited the Guru to his house and offered a huge welcome feast and asylum. But instead, the Guruji decided to stay at Bhai Lalo’s home, a poor carpenter and accepted his hospitality because Malik Bhago derived his income from cheating the poor whereas Bhai Lalo earned a living through hard and honest work. Through this decision, Guru had made a statement that hard-earned money instils self-respect and righteousness, while corruption is a way of cheating life itself.
