Mata Jito Ji and Guru Gobind Singh

This question is very deep. It's about why our souls re-incarnate into the earth.

Sat Sri Akaal

Guru ji could have, but it was Waheguru ji hukam.

Shaheed Guru Arjan Dev ji and Shaheed Guru Tegh Bahadur ji, could have stopped their shaheed as both easily could have destroyed the city of Lahore and Delhi, but they refused.

Guru Arjan Dev Ji pathsa said:

ਤੇਰਾ ਕੀਆ ਮੀਠਾ ਲਾਗੈ ॥ Thaera Keea Meetha Lagai || Your actions seem so sweet to me.

ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਮਾਂਗੈ ॥੨॥੪੨॥੯੩॥ Har Nam Padharathh Naanak Mangai ||2||42||93|| Nanak begs for the treasure of the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||2||42||93||

Also Guru ji, did not treat his Singh's our Kaur's different, to his actual sons. He treated them equally, Guru ji was plead many time to leave with his sons, but Baba Ajit Singh ji and Baba Jujar Singh ji themselves offered to fight.

If you check out these series of videos, it will explain in detail why Guru ji gave his sons away

Also many countless Gursikhs, got their inspiration from Guru Ji's children. They taught us to stand up and fight against suppression and fight against unrighteousness no matter how much we may be outnumbered by.

Bhagat Singh inspiration came from the younger sons of Guru ji.

There where also many shaheeds that had happen. They 13 days katha from Basics is really good to find out about them.

Here is other resources:

The story of Fateh:

Please forgive me if i said anything wrong or offensive

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Also Guru ji knew his sons will be shaheed when Guru ji was a very young age, there is a story of Guru Ji when he was eight chucking his paid of gold bangles in a river.
