In the Indian Muslim Traditions, especially in Gangatic plains and Hyderabad (Deccan), there is a social ritual where the sisters of the groom sing a song in praise of the groom and pray to God for his future wedded life. The groom follows this by giving cash to his sisters.

There are no specifications for a sehra except that it should rhyme and be of the same meter. Sehras are generally written by individuals praising their brothers, so they are very varied in style and nature. A good sehra appears in the Urdu Film Razia Sultan; however, this particular sehra was sung by males, quite contrary to the current tradition.
