Mirani (Urdu: ميرانی‎, Sindhi: ميراڻي) from the Arabic Amir (أمير) Mir (مير) + -âni (انی), meaning "The Descendants Of Mir" or "Amir", is a Sindhi speaking Baloch tribe settled in Sindh and Balochistan provinces of Pakistan as well as Hormozgān, Kermān, Sistan and Baluchestan provinces of Iran. Historically Mirani tribe was settled in the province of Sindh from the region of Balochistan and Iran. Over the years the Mirani in Sindh gradually lost their native language Balochi and adopted Sindhi as their first language. Some of the Mirani are bilingual and speak Sindhi, Balochi, and Persian, especially those who reside in the Balochistan and Iran.
