The question can be answered in two ways

1: What does Guru Sahib say about it

Guru Sahib's pyari gurbani says.. "mere har preetam kee koi baat sunaai.. so BHAAI so mera beer"

One who tells/narrates me sweet stories of God is my Brother (Bhaai) .. Meaning that the person is my family, my close friend. (everything infact)

2: What does Present practice of conferring title Bhai according to Akal Takht Sahib.

Basically people who contribute towards the Sikhi Prachar are conferred title of Bhai. The recent example is that of Bhai Pinderpal Singh ji now called Bhai Sahib Bhai Pinderpal Singh ji.

Another Example is Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh Ji.

and many others.

God is and shall remain super kind!!
