Actually this is Guru Nanak Dev Ji breaking Muslim Superstition

At that time only Muslims were buried on death as there were no Christians. Muslims had (and still do ) a notion he who has followed Islam sincerely, his body doesn't rot in the grave and stays preserved (like egyptian mummies). All the kings in Punjab were Turkish/Middle Eastern and Muslims, they used to "enjoy' life to the fullest but also do all Islamic rituals (like fasting sacrificing goats, etc).

So Guru Nanak here is saying the Muslamaan (Muslim) 's body turns into clay and then the potter puts the clay in the brick oven and then he cries out, (but it's of no use now).
