ਕਬੀਰ ਰਾਤੀ ਹੋਵਹਿ ਕਾਰੀਆ ਕਾਰੇ ਊਭੇ ਜੰਤ ॥ ਲੈ ਫਾਹੇ ਉਠਿ ਧਾਵਤੇ ਸਿ ਜਾਨਿ ਮਾਰੇ ਭਗਵੰਤ ॥੧੦॥
(Kabeer, the night is dark, and men go about doing their dark deeds.
They take the noose and run around; but rest assured that God shall destroy them.)
There are two aspects of darkness in Words of Devotee Kabeer Ji. First aspect is darkness of night which every one comprehends and second aspect is darkness of ignorance. And an individual surrounded by either keep doing dark deeds. They think that in darkness they can hide their actions. And they keep accumulating sins. But Kabeer Ji warns them that they cannot hide their dark deeds from God. They are just carrying noose of death which is getting tightened around their neck with every dark deeds. No matter how hard they try to escape by fooling others God will surely make them pay for their dark deeds. So Kabeer Ji words signifies: Darkness may an individual to feel he can hide his sinful actions but that is just illusion; he is inspiring every one to give up dark actions committed under ignorance of not being watched by anyone; God is all powerful and knows everything and HE will eventually punish evil doers.
