The 22st Chariter is one of Charitars from the Charitropakhyan written by Guru Gobind Singh. This Chariter is also known as the Charitar of Noop Kuaar. It is about a lady Noop Kuar(i) who ask Rai of Pur Anand for sex, but Rai who had knowledge of Dharma denied to do that. Noop Kuar(i) started shouting to trap the King, to get safe hand king put his blanket on his brother and started beating him and flee from the place. As he was humble and Gurmukh person he called the lady again and said sorry to her, didn't punish her, give her money, and guide her right way.
The Charitar Starts from 21st and story continues upto 23rd Charitar. There is intense knowledge in these three charitars, which is against womanizers, nymphomaniacs and sluts. The Charitar contains the message of Guru Granth Sahib itself, which will explain later in article.

ਬਿਨ ਸਤਗਰ ਸਖ ਨ ਪਾਵਈ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਜੋਨੀ ਪਾਹਿ ॥੩॥
This is Dharma or religion. King knew that he was faced with fraud and to save his religion he would have to do something - so his Triya (mind) plays a charitar (trick) with that Noop Kuar(i).

Charitar (Original text)
ਸਨਤ ਚੋਰ ਕੇ ਬਚ ਸਰਵਨ ਉਠਿਯੋ ਰਾਇ ਡਰ ਧਾਰ ॥ ਭਜਿਯੋ ਜਾਇ ਡਰ ਪਾਇ ਮਨ ਪਨੀ ਪਾਮਰੀ ਡਾਰਿ ॥੧॥
ਚੋਰਿ ਸਨਤ ਜਾਗੇ ਸਭੈ ਭਜੈ ਨ ਦੀਨਾ ਰਾਇ ॥ ਕਦਮ ਪਾਚ ਸਾਤਕ ਲਗੇ ਮਿਲੇ ਸਿਤਾਬੀ ਆਇ ॥੨॥
ਚੋਰ ਬਚਨ ਸਭ ਹੀ ਸਨਿ ਧਾਝ ॥ ਕਾਢੇ ਖੜਗ ਰਾਇ ਪਰਤਿ ਆਝ ॥ ਕੂਕਿ ਕਹੈ ਤਹਿ ਜਾਨ ਨ ਦੈਹੈ ॥ ਤਹਿ ਤਸਕਰ ਜਮਧਾਮ ਪਠੈ ਹੈ ॥੩॥
ਆਗੇ ਪਾਛੇ ਦਾਹਨੇ ਘੇਰਿ ਦਸੋ ਦਿਸ ਲੀਨ ॥ ਪੈਂਡ ਭਜਨ ਕੌ ਨ ਰਹਿਯੋ ਰਾਇ ਜਤਨ ਯੌ ਕੀਨ ॥੪॥ ਵਾ ਕੀ ਕਰ ਦਰਾਰੀ ਧਰੀ ਪਗਿਯਾ ਲਈ ਉਤਾਰਿ ॥ ਚੋਰ ਚੋਰ ਕਰਿ ਤਿਹ ਗਹਿਯੋ ਦਵੈਕ ਮਤਹਰੀ ਝਾਰਿ ॥੫॥
ਲਗੇ ਮਹਤਰੀ ਕੇ ਗਿਰਿਯੋ ਭੂਮਿ ਮੂਰਛਨਾ ਖਾਇ ॥ ਭੇਦ ਨ ਕਾਹੂੰ ਨਰ ਲਹਿਯੋ ਮਸਕੈ ਲਈ ਚੜਾਇ ॥੬॥
ਲਾਤ ਮਸਟ ਬਾਜਨ ਲਗੀ ਸਿਖਯ ਪਹੰਚੇ ਆਇ ॥ ਭਰਾਤ ਭਰਾਤ ਤਰਿਯ ਕਹਿ ਰਹੀ ਕੋਊ ਨ ਸਕਿਯੋ ਛਰਾਇ ॥੭॥
ਜੂਤੀ ਬਹ ਤਿਹ ਮੂੰਡ ਲਗਾਈ ॥ ਮਸਕੈ ਤਾ ਕੀ ਝਠ ਚੜਾਈ ॥ ਬੰਦਸਾਲ ਤਿਹ ਦਿਯਾ ਪਠਾਈ ॥ ਆਨਿ ਆਪਨੀ ਸੇਜ ਸਹਾਈ ॥੮॥
ਇਹ ਛਲ ਖੇਲਿ ਰਾਇ ਭਜ ਆਯੋ ॥ ਬੰਦਸਾਲ ਤਰਿਯ ਭਰਾਤ ਪਠਾਯੋ ॥ ਸਿਖਯਨ ਭੇਦ ਅਭੇਦ ਨ ਪਾਯੋ ॥ ਵਾਹੀ ਕੌ ਤਸਕਰ ਠਹਰਾਯੋ ॥੯॥
ਇਤਿ ਸਰੀ ਚਰਿਤਰ ਪਖਯਾਨੇ ਤਰਿਯਾ ਚਰਿਤਰੋ ਮੰਤਰੀ ਭੂਪ ਸੰਬਾਦੇ ਬਾਈਸਵੋ ਚਰਿਤਰ ਸਮਾਪਤਮ ਸਤ ਸਭਮ ਸਤ ॥੨੨॥੪੪੮॥ਅਫਜੂੰ॥
