The tradition of writing on seerat un nabi is very old and there
are many books which give their introduction of different
books on seerat or provide index of different books and their
time and age. An Analysis on these books is very important
for the study of Urdu seerat nigari. This study analyse and
introduce different books on the subject and also include
analysis of books which only introduces different books on
seerat or secondarily include index and list of seerat books .
Some books on seerat include the entire life of Prophet
Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam but many of them only
focus on different aspects of his life. It is difficult to explore
each and every aspect of Seerat as it covers every possible
aspect of human life. History of Hijaz, Mecca and Madina
travelogues etc. are also the part of seerat nigari .
This paper presents the index and books in chronological
order so that the evolution of the indexes and books will be
highlight. Furthermore, this paper discusses only Urdu books
on seerat and does not include letters and their respective lists .
