The Karni Namah and the Raj Namah are two significant chapters of the Sau Sakhi, the Sikh book of prophecy. The Raj Namah appears in, The History Of The Sikhs, by J D Cunningham on p. 340. Cunningham came across this document during the mid 19th century. He states that these â€œcompositions are of course fabulous as regards Nanak, and appear to be the compositions of the commencement or middle of the last centuryâ€.
The Karni Namah was told to Qazi Rukan Din, Pir Bahaoud Din, Ghous, Kuthab, Saalaar, Hajji, Sheikh and Mushaikh Aulviya, who sat with Guru Nanak at religious discussions. The Raj Namah was told to Kaarun, the Emperor of Rome, on Guru Nanakâ€™s return from medina.
These prophecies were in the Old Janam Sakhiâ€™s written by Bhai Bala, who accompanied Guru Nanak on his travels. However, the British removed them.
â€˜Raaj Karega Khalsa Aaki Rahai Na Koe.
Khuaar Hoe Sab Milengai Bachai Sharan Jo Hoeâ€™.
This is said by the Sikhs in their daily Ardas. As it can be seen, the Karni Nama is the only source of these words.
The coming of Nanak was prophesised thousands of years before his arrival. These prophecies are explicitly detailed in the Vedas and the Puranas, which are amongst the oldest scriptures on Earth.
Whilst at Mecca and Medina, Guru Nanak unfolded futuristic events in the Karni Nama and the Raj Nama. He clearly states that he will have to return to ressurect the Khalsa.
Prophets of the world have all established their religions. Each religion was a requirement of its age, which the prophet was sent to fulfil. The way of the Khalsa is the requirement in the age of Kaljug. It is the tool necessary to defeat Kaljug and establish the kingdom of Satjug.
Presently, the Khalsa appears to be in a state of dormancy. What is required for the Great Guru to show himself? What conditions are required, i.e., how much more of a decline of humanity is required?
Is this decline necessary? What can we do, as Khalsa, to stop this decline from occurring?

While Guru Nanak was in Mecca and Medina, Qazi Rukan Din asked, â€˜True King, tell us your prophecy again. Tell us how you will unfold the futureâ€™.
Your name is Nanak Nirankari and you are from the Nation of the Lord. What are the instructions for the future?
Nanak replied Rukan Din, â€˜listen to the true answerâ€™
Whosoever reads or listens to this shall be content. All doubts shall be removed.
In the tenth dress shall reside The Lord.
I shall fight many battles against Emperor Aurangzeb.
I shall then send a letter of victory (Zafarnamah) to Aurangzeb with my Singh (Bhai Daya Singh).
Upon seeing him, Power shall lessen and he shall forget his devious ways.
Emperor Aurangzeb will be overwhelmed by the sight of Daya Singh and will start to tremble.
â€˜The Khalsa been resurrected! Good has not been done by Gobind Singh!â€™
I shall vanish (from sight) having given a kingdom; My name being Gobind
There will be a time when the Khalsa shall forget the teachings I have given them. Sikhi will only be left in name. Many Wars shall occur.
I will have to return again to resurrect the Khalsa. They shall reside in the Punjab.
I shall make people from all four corners into one.

The Khalsa Panth shall rule. The arrows of death shall not touch them.
The Army of the Timeless shall grow and spread like locusts.
All shall wear vestments of blue; no one else shall be seen.
Listen Qazi Rukan Din, â€˜The Singhs shall ruleâ€™.
The Unholy Sheikhs shall be destroyed. Pirs and Mureeds shall be no more.

He will make all utter VAHEGURU. All Singhs shall flock under his banner.
All shall know him as the True One. He will sit at the throne of Delhi.
He will establish a kingdom of peace and no enemies will remain.
Wherever the Khalsa turns his eye, the 14 realms shall tremble.
For 14,000 years, this kingdom shall remain.
Wealth will be collected and food shall be distributed.
The naked and the starving shall all receive; no one will go without.
Sayeth Nanak, â€˜Rukan Din, This is how it shall beâ€™.
Whosoever reads the Karni Namah, his love with The Lord shall grow.
The Word of the Timeless shall prevail. Those uttering falsehood shall not remain.
After the effect of The Akaal, forests, mountains and the world shall see salvation.
The Khalsa shall Rule. There will be no-one left to oppose them.
All who are lost shall gain the safety of the Khalsa
Spoken by the First Master
First, Nanak went to Mecca;
Medina he afterwards visited.
The lord of Mecca and Medina,
Kaarun, he made his disciple.
When Nanak was about to depart,
Kaarun, the fortunate, thus spoke:
Now thou art about to go,
But when wilt thou return?
Then the Guru thus answered:
When I put on my tenth dress
I shall be called Gobind Singh;
Then shall all Singhs wear their hair;
They shall accept the â€˜Pahalâ€™ of the two-edged Sword
Then shall the Khalsa be established;
Then shall men exclaim â€˜Vaheguruâ€™
The four races shall become one and the same;
The five weapons shall be worn by all.
In Kalyug they shall array themselves in vestments of blue;
The name of the Khalsa shall be everywhere.
In the time of Aurangzeb
The wondrous Khalsa shall arise.
Then shall battles be waged,
Endless war shall ensue,
And fighting shall follow year after year.
They shall place the name of Gobind Singh in their hearts.
When many heads shall be rendered up,
The Empire of the Khalsa shall prevail.
First, they shall conquer Punjab;
Then other countries shall be theirs;
Hindustan and the North shall be possessed by them;
Then the west shall bow to them.
When they enter Khorasan,
Kabul and Kandahar shall lie low.
When Iran has been laid prostrate,
Arabia shall be conquered and they shall march on to Mecca.
Mecca shall be beheld,
And Medina shall be seized.
Mighty shall be the rejoicing,
And all shall exclaim â€˜Vaheguruâ€™.
Unbelievers shall everywhere be destroyed;
The holy Khalsa shall be exalted.
Beasts and Birds shall tremble in the presence of the Lord.
Men and Women shall everywhere call on God.
The Earth, the Oceans and the Heavens shall call on God.
By calling on the Guru shall men be blessed.
Every faith shall become of the Khalsa;
No other religion will remain.
â€˜Vaheguruâ€™ shall everywhere be repeated,
And pain and trouble shall depart.
In the Kalyug shall the Kingdom be established,
Which Nanak received from the Lord.
Worthless, I fall before God;
Nanak, the slave, cannot comprehend the ways of the Lord.
Thus replied Nanak to Kaarunâ€™s question via Daily Sikh Updates.
