Abstract

In the Arabic language the word sīra or sīrat (Arabic: سيرة‎) comes from the verb sāra (Present tense: yasīru), which means to travel or to be on a journey.A person’s sīra is that person’s journey through life, or biography, encompassing their birth, events in their life, manners and characteristics, and their death. In modern usage it may also refer to a person's resume. It is sometimes written as "seera", "sirah" or "sirat", all meaning "life" or "journey". In Islamic literature, the plural form, siyar, could also refer to the rules of war and dealing with non-Muslims. In Islam, Al-sīra al-Nabawiyya (Prophetic biography). Sīrat Rasūl Allāh (Life of the Messenger of Allah) or Seerah are the traditional Muslim biographies of Muhammad from which, in addition to the Quran and trustable Hadiths, most historical information about his life and the early period of Islam is derived. This article attempts to briefly review the Seerah Writing in Balochistan. Especially the Introduction and services of those People who have performed the service of Seerah Writing has also been provided.
