After a few days, the local sultan, who used to kidnap young girls to appease his lust, sent a few soldiers to kidnap a girl from Taimurlang (Taimur/Timur Lang)’s village. As they were dragging the helpless girl away, Taimur lang came to her rescue and started to attack those soldiers with his herding stick.

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 Taimurlang (Taimur/Timur Lang) 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.

Taimurlang (Taimur/Timur Lang) 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).

How Did Timur (Taimurlang) Die?

When the 80-years-old Taimurlang had gone for hunting, God met him again in the form of the Jinda Saint. He explained to him that if he did not perform worship, he would fall in hell. Kabir Saheb reminded Taimurlang how he had only one Roti at home. At that time, Taimurlang fell at the feet of Baba and took initiation. Then, he handed over the kingdom to his grandson. He lived for ten more years. That soul is in birth and death. But the seed of worship has been sown. If God had asked him to do worship in that poverty, he wouldn’t have believed it. Only Supreme God Kabir ji knows how a soul can be freed from the clutches of Kaal.
