Unknown facts of Akbars life revealed by Rahims dohe
History & Classics  

As a person who loves to read and research about history, King Akbar is one of my favourite characters to research. Maybe it is because he was so spiritual...


The actual name of the Mughal emperor was Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar. Which infact  holds an important place in Indian history. Before the reign of Akbar, the Hindus had to pay taxes to the Mughal rulers to go on pilgrimage.
This impacted a great resentment among Hindus. When Akbar came into power, he detached this tax and made a particular place in the hearts of Hindus. Agra was the capital of Mughals during the reign of Emperor Akbar.
It was Red Fort where Akbar and other important Mughals used to stay. At that time, there was a person who got too close to King Akbar. He knew every personal detail about the king and not just that, he had even changed the way people used to think.
Mughal emperor Humayun got killed when Jalal was at a very young age. After Mughal Emperor Humayun, Bairmkham took care of the Sultanate and also Akbar. Bairmkham powerfully ran the Mughal empire. When Jalal grew up, differences between him and Bairmkham developed.
Due to the differences, Bairmkham began his rebellion against the king, but Akbar suppressed the fight efficiently. When Bairmkham died, Jalal gave shelter and put them together in the Red Fort at Agra.
The son of Bairmkham was Rahim, who later became renowned for his verses ‘Rahim ke Dohe’. These verses changed the way people lived their lives. These verses are also taught in schools.
Although Rahim was a Muslim, but in his verses, there is an honesty about Hindu religion and traditions. To write his verses, Rahim read a lot from Mahabharat, Ramayan, Ved-Puran and the Gita.


These are the verses of Rahim which explain all the secrets of King Akbar:
बिगरी बात बने नहीं, लाख करो किन कोय।
रहिमन फाटे दूध को, मथे न माखन होय।।
रहिम�- �� धागा प्रेम का, मत तोरो चटकाय।
टूटे- तो फिर ना जुरे, जुरे गांठ परी जाय।।
रहि�- �न देखि बड़ेन को, लघु न दीजिए डारि।
जहां काम आवे सुई, कहा करे तरवारि।।
ज�- �� रहीम उत्तम प्रकृति, का करी सकत कुसंग।
चन्द- न विष व्यापे नहीं, लिपटे रहत भुजंग।।
रू�- ��े सुजन मनाइए, जो रूठे सौ बार।
रहिमन फिरि फिरि पोइए, टूटे मुक्ता हार।।
