First of all "CHOT" was the surname/nickname (takhalus) of Pir Shams in addition of KALANDAR,SABZWARI, DATAR AND SHAMS GHAZI.
In Urdu The simple and easy description of word "chot" is some one who feel sad due to separation of god. "Chot" usually use
in devotional way to the god because 'RUH' is separated from Allah's noor and thus he/she feel lonely in other word
chot is a devotional love towards Allah in this love devotee feel lonely in separation of Almighty Allah. صدمہ لگانا and we can say આઘાત લાગવો in Gujarati
As per dictionaries, there are 32 (THIRTY TWO) meanings of word "CHOT"
Few meanings are 1, effect, 2, attraction 3, speed, 4, Brightness, 5, quickness, 6, competition , 7, revenge 8, top of mountain
9, term in game 10, loss,11, target 12, sight 13, slap 14, knot 15, hit someone by hand or with weapon 16, Bruise and more,
but forget the above meanings.
The real and appropriate meaning of 'chot' we can accept here is "HEART BREAK" in any way in love, in separation of your loved one, Allah or any thing else which make your heart to suffer. While looking ginanic verses above the detail definition of chot is as follows:
"SOME ONE WHO FEEL (PIR SHAMS HERE) AFFLICATION, ANGUISH AND ALWAYS REPENTANCE TO ALLAH FOR ANY SINS AND FOR THE MERCY OF GOD AND
WHO ALWAYS CRY IN SEPARATION OF ALMIGHTY ALLAH IN DEVOTIONAL WAY''. الله کی جدائی مے جسکو صدمہ لگا ہوو
