Can our mother really save us?

It is generally said that God created a mother to take care of His children when He is not there. But, the question here is, can a mother really save and protect her children when they are in danger?? Sadly, the answer to this question is “NO”. Because a mother is as human as her children and the human body is bound by certain limits.

Suppose if a mother lives miles apart from her children how can she protect and save them if they ever get into some kind of trouble?? It is humanly impossible. In such a situation only the Supreme Almighty is capable of taking care of her children.

Do you know who the Supreme Almighty is?

Many of you reading the blog will definitely answer “YES”. However, let me bring it to your notice that whoever you believe to be God, may not be able to protect you and your family from the misfortunes you may be destined for. The simple reason for this being, the ones we believe to be God are not capable of making any changes in our destiny.

Hence, I used the term “Supreme Almighty” in the previous paragraph. Now, you must be thinking, are Supreme Almighty and God different?? Well with regards to whom you believe to be God, the answer to this question is, YES, Supreme Almighty is different from the gods people generally know about and worship. As a matter of fact, all our Holy scriptures clearly give out his name. His name is Kabir Saheb.

Let me prove my point with a few evidences

God Kabir in Vedas

  • Atharva Veda Kaand no 4, Anuvaak no 1, mantra 7 gives out the name of Supreme Almighty Kabir Saheb
  • Yajurveda Adhyay 5 mantra 1 proves that God is in a human-like form. He is not formles
  • Rigveda Mandal 9, sukt 96 mantra 18 proves that Almighty Kabir Saheb lives in an eternal place called Satyaloka.
  • Yajurveda Adhyay 8 mantra 13 very clearly mentions that Almighty Supreme can forgive all our sins… if sins are forgiven, then there will be no sufferings, no dangers, and no misery. The Hindu Trinity Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva cannot forgive our sins hence they cannot alter our destiny.

God Kabir in the Bible

The Bible too proves in the chapter Genesis that God is in human-like form. Iyov 36:5 Orthodox Jewish Bible clearly mentions the name of Supreme Almighty as Kabir Saheb.

Allah Kabir in Quran

  • Holy Quran also mentions the name of Supreme Almighty as Kabir Saheb in Surat Furqan Verse no 52-59.
  • Fazal-E-Amal also mentions that Kabir Saheb is the Supreme Almighty
  • All the attributes of Almighty given in Surah Al Ikhlas 112:1 -112:4 fits properly only on Kabir Saheb.

God Kabir in Guru Granth Sahib

  • Malhaar Mehla 1 describes how the Supreme Almighty looks like
  • Rag Tilang Mehla 1 gives out the name of Supreme Almighty as Kabir Saheb.
  • Raat Ramkali Mehla 1, Dakhni Omkaar describes how Brahma was born from Omkaar (Jyoti Niranjan) and how the Vedas came into existence proving that Supreme Almighty is someone else.

From the above evidence, it becomes clear that Kabir Saheb is the Supreme Almighty and only He is capable of protecting us all.
