This paper is studying the Banu Hilal Sirahs, and explains how they emerged, what kinds there were and introduces the process of their expansim. Also it shows that these Sirahs had been current in two styles as oral and in writing among the Hilalid's in different parts of the Islamic world especially in Egypt and the Maghrib. The first writings of Banu Hilal's biography and explanation of events and adventures from Najd to Maghrib had been started in the 6 century AH. A few numbers of these Sirahs had been written between 8 until 11 centuries AH, but most of them belong to 12 and 13 centuries AH, according to the names of their narrators. The main characteristic of these Sirahs is their narrative form, as Collective biographies, they are recorded in both prose and poetry. The main result of this research is that the subjects of Banu Hilal's Sirahs are divided in three sections: The first, introduces the main Heroes, their lives and adventures, second is the explanation about their immigrations from Najd to Tunisia, and finally the description of their adventures in Maghrib.
