This Shabad is by Guru Amar Daas Ji in Raag Soohee on Ang 787

ਮਃ 3 ॥
ma 3
Third Mehla:

ਕੰਤਾ ਨਾਲਿ ਮਹੇਲੀਆ ਸੇਤੀ ਅਗਿ ਜਲਾਹਿ ॥
ka(n)thaa naal mehaeleeaa saethee ag jalaahi
The widows burn themselves in the fire, along with their husbands' corpses.

ਜੇ ਜਾਣਹਿ ਪਿਰੁ ਆਪਣਾ ਤਾ ਤਨਿ ਦੁਖ ਸਹਾਹਿ ॥
jae jaanehi pir aapanaa thaa than dhukh sehaahi
If they truly knew their husbands, then they suffer terrible bodily pain.

ਨਾਨਕ ਕੰਤ ਨ ਜਾਣਨੀ ਸੇ ਕਿਉ ਅਗਿ ਜਲਾਹਿ ॥
naanak ka(n)th n jaananee sae kio ag jalaahi
O Nanak, if they did not truly know their husbands, why should they burn themselves in the fire?

ਭਾਵੈ ਜੀਵਉ ਕੈ ਮਰਉ ਦੂਰਹੁ ਹੀ ਭਜਿ ਜਾਹਿ ॥3॥
bhaavai jeevo kai maro dhoorahu hee bhaj jaahi 3
Whether their husbands are alive or dead, those wives remain far away from them. 3
