ਆਵਨਿ ਅਠਤਰੈ ਜਾਨਿ ਸਤਾਨਵੈ ਹੋਰੁ ਭੀ ਉਠਸੀ ਮਰਦ ਕਾ ਚੇਲਾ ॥

Aavan Athatharai Jaan Sathaanavai Hor Bhee Outhasee Maradh Kaa Chaelaa ||

Coming in seventy-eight (1521 A.D.), they will depart in ninety-seven (1540 A.D.), and then another disciple of man will rise up.

Babur invaded India in 1521 A.D. but what happened in 1540 A.D. ?

Does any one know ?

Tilang, M I, p. 722 (Babar Vani) - Guru Nanak addressing Lalo, says that the Divine word as revealed to him indicts Babar’s invading horde as a party of sin descended from Kabul forcibly demanding control over this land. So in God’s reckoning the punishers He sent turned vandals and rapists and their master needed to be held accountable.

Before announcing the punishment to the master, Guru Nanak goes on to say that Hindustan will remember his words when its body-fabric is torn to shreds and predicts that coming in seventy-eight (1521 A.D.), Mughals will lose their rule and be made to depart in ninety-seven (1540), as another disciple of man will rise to enforce this divine will - jaisee mai aavai khasam kee baanee thaisarraa karee giaan vae laalo paap ki janj lai kaabulon dhhaya joree mangai daan ve lalo--- kaaeiaa kaparr ttuk ttuk hosee hidhusathaan samaalasee bola --- aavan at(h)atharai jaan sathaanavai hor bhee out(h)asee maradh kaa chaelaa.

He ends on a reassuring note ‘true is the Master and true is His justice and He issues His commands as He deems just - sachaa so saahib sach thapaavas sacharraa niaao karaeg masolaa.

It happened! Eight months into the passing of Guru Nanak, on 17 May, 1540, Sher Shah Suri decisively defeated Humayon and he had to flee with not a soldier on his side. God did respond to the cries of victims and the chide by Guru Nanak to deliver fitting divine justice!

Interesting I thought he referred Mard ka chela to Guru Gobind Singh Ji as he planted a seed to totally uproot the Mughal Empire But it may be Sher Shah Suri too, good to know were you able to find meaning of this ?
