AJAB, BHAI, a Jatt of Sangha clan who lived in the village of Darauli, now called Darauli Bhai, in Faridkot; district of the Punjab. He, like his brothers Umar Shah and Ajaib, forsook his faith in Sultan Sakhi Sarwar, became a Sikh and rendered devoted service at the time of the construction of the Harimandar at Amritsar. The three brothers were appointed masands, or parish leaders, in the areas of Moga, Zira and Dharamkot. They often used to quote Guru Arjan`s line: ” If God so wills, He may keep one alive even after breath had departed the body.” They were especially gratified once to have the line expounded by the Guru himself.
