Satshri Akal ji,

The whole shabad is "Agya bhai Akal ki tabhi chalayo Panth. Sabh Sikhan ko hukam hai Guru manyo Granth. Guru Granth Ji manyo pargat Guran ki deh. Jo Prabhu ko milbo chahe khoj shabad mein le. Raj karega Khalsa aqi rahei na koe ,Khwar hoe sabh milange bache sharan jo hoe."

The meaning of shabad is "Under orders of the Immortal Being, the Panth was created. All Sikhs are enjoined to accept the Granth as their Guru. Consider the Guru Granth as an embodiment of the Gurus.Those who want to meet God, can find Him in its hymns. The pure shall rule, and the impure will be no more, Those separated will unite and all the devotees of the Guru shall be saved." This shabads are the words of Guru Gobind Singh ji in which guru ji explains why Khalsa was created and all Sikh are ordered to accept Guru Granth Sahib as their Guru .

ਬਾਬਾ ਹੋਰੁ ਖਾਣਾ ਖੁਸੀ ਖੁਆਰੁ ॥ O Baba, the pleasures of other foods are false.

ਜਿਤੁ ਖਾਧੈ ਤਨੁ ਪੀੜੀਐ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਚਲਹਿ ਵਿਕਾਰ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Eating them, the body is ruined, and wickedness and corruption enter into the mind.

Now there is a confusion in my mind. I thought Khuar would be like ash. But it means false. I assumed the lines mean that we will unite with Lord on basis of our actions after we die.

PS: I don't think they are gurbani, but more like Sangat boli!

I have understood Khwar as "finished" "defeated" or "in a wretched shape" as the Khalsa spirit of launching into the near impossible task of "sawa lakh se ekh lardaoon" and the raj of the Khalsa is the raj of principles. " We will meet after the battle - whomsoever he choses to save. . . " It is the hopeful smiling spirit where one exists without superstition or fear with the words of the guru granth guiding us to put away the ego and live in service of our fellow man. . .

khvaar (Urdu) means someone who has gone mad because of losing someone close.

Here Khovaar are the Sikhs who lost their families/friends on battlefield.

All those who are Khovaar will meet their loved ones again in the God's court
