How Taimur Lang becomes king of Delhi?
One night when Taimur lang was sleeping, the Almighty Kabir Sahib came in his dream & told Taimur (Timur) that the iron workshop he works at, is containing a hidden treasure under the floor. He told him that when he would go to work the next day, he should ask the owner of the workshop to sell the place to him & promise to pay his money in two months & Almighty Kabir Saheb said him that he will change the owner’s mindset in his favour.
When Taimur lang (Tamerlane/Timur) woke up, he shared his dream with his mother, who said that she too saw the sage in her dreams but couldn’t understand what he was saying. The workshop owner, from many days, was thinking about selling his present property & was planning to move to a more spacious place which that he already owned.
When Taimur lang offered to buy his plot, the workshop owner readily agreed & was even ready to accept the payment after one year, but Almighty sage (KABIR sahib) had told Taimur lang to give the money within two months, so a deal was struck & the iron workshop owner moved to a newer place. Taimur with the help of his mother erected a wall around the plot and at night he dug up the floor to find the treasure.
The sage had further told Taimur lang to start trading in sheep, goats & horses so no one may suspect his sudden success. Within a year he had established a thriving business & erected a house for himself, he hired local boys to take care of his horses. But Taimur always kept in mind the incident in which the girl of his village was kidnapped by the local sultan.
Taimur Lang (Tamerlane/Timur) wanted to kill the sultan for his shameful act. So he started to manufacture swords on his iron workshop himself & started to recruit young villagers & shared his intentions with the youths of the village & promised to pay them a silver coin every month. In those days making a single silver coin was impossible. So youngsters joined his army in great numbers. With their help, Taimur lang attacked the sultan and defeated him and took control of his sultanate. But he didn’t kill him; rather he sent him to live in a village & even gave him a pension.
After that, there was no stopping in his conquest of the world, the area he conquered then now comprise of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, large parts of Turkey & Syria & the northwestern portions of India(Delhi).
