WJKK WJKF What does this shabad actually mean: Mittee Muslaman Ke Oedhe Pae Kumiyar. Ang 466. I have read the translation but I still do not understand what Guru Ji is saying. I remember a sakhi that someone (Dhirmal? Ram Rai?) was asked to change this shabad.

These tuks are about ego and its nature and manifestation.

"The clay of the Muslim’s grave becomes clay for the potter’s wheel. Pots and bricks are fashioned from it, and it cries out as it burns. The poor clay burns, burns and weeps, as the fiery coals fall upon it. O Nanak, the Creator created the creation; the Creator Lord alone knows."

A grave is supposed to be a sacred spot, but in this tuk the grave is dug up and the clay fashioned on a potters wheel. All things go to God and are reused as raw material to create new things. People perform actions in ego, but these actions are for nought.
