Sahai might be an arabic or Persian word. Search for it online google translate or arabic englis h dictionaries. It follows arabic rules three syllable/ consonants/sounds as well as using a lot of s and h sounds.

So if it is arabic it came to india during mughal raj startin 1400 or 1100 when mongols attacked. Does anyone know why mughals who were supposed to be mongols spoke arabic n why were muslim. I mean i can fathom them being muslim the ottomon empire n other muslim conquests but how could mongol ppl lose their language and adopt arabic completely?

Many people in history aren't who they say they are. Especially those that leave their own house, those that take what isn't theirs.

No, bro, it's not Arabic!

Come on, you know Punjabi. You must certainly know the noun form of the word, sahaita.

You certainly must know that abstract nouns that end in 'ta' are from Indian languages.

See here for more info:

sahai means help

dont know of any historical reference to it..

Sahai does not mean help. You do speak Punjabi, don't you?

Sahaita means help.

Sahai means helper or helper of.

As in, your Mom says of your relative, "Uh bahut sahai hoia": He helped a lot. He was a big help.

There are plenty of Gurbani references to "sahai".

For example, in the popular shabad, "Tati vao na lagai", this line comes at the end:

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਭਈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਏ ਸਹਾਈ ॥੨॥੧੫॥੭੯॥

Kahu Naanak Kirapa Bhee Prabh Bheae Sahai ||2||15||79||

Says Nanak, God has showered me with His Mercy; He has become my help and support. ||2||15||79||

 

Akal Sahai is basically the same idea, it's just using the word Akal instead of Prabh (lord).

It's kind of like Khuda Hafiz (God is Protector), but in Punjabi.

i really haven't heard anyone use the word sahai, maybe its used more in some regions than others.  i mostly hear people say madat for help    or sahara for support. 

so sahai means the helper ...

Mughals were central asian origin, babur was from uzbekistan i think, mughals initially spoke some central asian language but later they adopted persian language and culture.

In one of the maharaja ranjit singh series the longer one on youtube, akaal sahai was engraved on the sword which one of his forefathers had ordered to be made specifically for fighting with the mughals.

    • Waheguru ji ka khalsa  Waheguru ji ke fateh  Sangat ji  i need your help. I have been training in combat sport since i was a child. Raised to be a fighter at a professional level.  I took Amrit 2 years ago and im Grateful for this Gift everyday. I'm now getting back into training and need an alternative way to keep my 5 kakkars on during training especially when i am sparring with my team  one on one. I don't want to hurt anyone in my gym, we have been training together since we were kids. They are like my family. I know wearing a necklace with kanga and kirpan defeats the purpose. I wear my kakkars  ALL TIME and i dont want to take it off for training but i also don't want to injure my team when im sparring.  Khalsa are warriors we need to train. And unfortunately we don't get that training at Gurdwaras in Canada.  Singhs should have an equal opportunity to join the combat sport at a professional level. But fighting in the ring or octagon at a professional level, the commision will not allow even a kara during the tournament.  And i can't cover my head during the fight with a dumalla or even a bandana. Does that mean i should give up on my dream, which ive trained for all my life?  Its not like im cutting my kes. Which is a bujjer Kurehit  Or do you think Guru  Gobind Singh ji Maharaj will bless me with any decision i make?  He knows my inner feelings. My Guru ji is antarjami. He understands.  Please help!!!! Any suggestions?  Waheguru ji ka khalsa  Waheguru ji ke fateh 
    • What a blessed life that has blessed us all. 
    • Hazoori Ragi Balbir has sadly passed away hai Sahib inspired the whole panth with his passion for singing. It is said that he originally was a nihang but his love of kirtan he humbled himself and changed his turban so he would be allowed to play kirtan in Darbar Sahib Amritsar, and treasure of love. His words and life demonstrated not just his passion but also a simple teaching of our beloved Guru. Bhai Sahib explains to us all an important episode in history: During the time of Guru Arjun the ego had arisen in the musicians at the time who left the court of the Guru. Guru Arjun Dev taught the sangat that we don't need to rely on the particular talent of such people, we should all learn how to play kirtan ourselves. The sangat began to learn. It is on all of us to participate in Guru's court. And this is the kind of inspiration that Bhai Sahib lived by. He began learning kirtan at the age of 4 and he never stopped. Sikhs around the world will always be inspired by such lovers of gurbani as Bhai Balbir Singh ji! When you see him play, you can see it is no chore for him, not simply a job or an ambition to be recognized or any such thing. He plays kirtan with his whole body. Watch this legendary video of him and pray that all of us may have more such innocence and joy with Gurus words.  its very sad news and there not much recent kirtan vedios of his kirtan
    • crazy stuff,  cow poo and wee is a multi billion dollar industry!      i really can't get my head around how these people actually see cows as divine and drink/eat there wee/poo.  makes you wonder what will the future of Sikhs be in that country.     this vid says that cow poo has vitamin b-12
