Nirvair(ਨਿਰਵੈਰ੝) means Without Hate. It is one of qualities described in Mool Mantar in Guru Granth Sahib it describes that One i.e God is without hostility. Vair translates as enmity, hostility and Nir is without. God is without rancour or enmity; As God is the Sole Supreme Being, Himself immanent and pervasive in His Creation, against whom is He to have rancour, enmity, hatred or ill-will? A corollary to this attribute, stated positively, is that God is all Love. He is above all fear and is free from all thoughts of enmity.
