SIHAN, BHAISIHAN, BHAI, a washerman, was a devoted Sikh of Guru Nanak`s. He along with Bhai Hassu accompanied the Guru during his journey to Kashmir. They reduced to writing hymns uttered by the Guru during this udasl. BIBLIOGRAPHY 1. Vir Singh, Bhai, ed., Puratanjanam Sakhi. 2. Kirpal Singh, Janam Sakhi Parampara. Patiala, 1962 3.

SIHAN, BHAI, an Uppal Khatri, and his cousin, Gajjan, both figure in Bhai Gurdas` roster (Varan, XI. 14) of the Sikhs of Guru Nanak.
A sakhl is related of the marriage of Sihan`s daughter. A day before the bridegroom was to arrive with the wedding party, there came to his house a large contingent of Sikhs on their way to Kartarpur to see the Guru. Both cousins stinted nothing in their entertainment. Whatever had been prepared for the wedding guests was consumed. Then Sihan`s wife began to worry and said to her husband, “What shall we give our guests to eat tomorrow?” “Don`t be anxious,” said Sihan.
” The Guru will save our honour.” Next day when the bridegroom`s party arrived, Sihan made his prayer and opened the lock of the store. As says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, all the guests from the bridegroom`s side as well as the bride`s side were entertained and yet neither sweets nor victuals ran short. They kept the wedding party for five days and no one complained of lack of attention or hospitality. Sihan and Gay an were overwhelmed with gratefulness and said, “The Guru himself saves the honour of his Sikhs.”
