The Bijak is complete works of Kabir, wherein he deals with each system of religion, criticizing and pointing out their errors to the adherents of each.

Kabir teaches in many passages of the Bijak that God is not the creator of the universe. This is the creation of Niranjan, and Niranjan was created by God. Again, nothing in the universe is true and real: all is entirely illusory and visionary. Maya is the mother as well as the wife of Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesha. Many illusions are made in the Bijak to her deceits and it is she who binding the soul to this world, thereby becomes the author of all sins.

An examination of the Bijak makes it clear beyond doubt that Kabir had a thorough and intimate knowledge of Hinduism. By the time in which Kabir lived, Moslem rule was well-established in Northern India. The devout Moslem held him as one of the Sufis.
