Although no documentary background of the districtis available in the history yet certain indications as well as guideline regarding its creation as per aphorism of the eminent of the area is available. About 500 years ago in the era of Sikandar Lodhi in the year 1488,  Hindus belonging to the Aror tribe of District Multan embraced Islam in the hands of Habibullah Shah, a saint of the area. Nar Singh of the said tribe met Shah Shamash Tabraiz as per direction of the said saint. Nar Singh being desirous to build a new city requested Shah Shamash Tabraiz to pray for the completion of his desire and noble task. Shah Shamash Tabraiz sent his own son along with said Nar Singh towards Narowal. The tribe of said Nar Singh stationed permanently in the vicinity of Narowal. Later on the city was gradually known as Narowal. During British Rule Narowal was a town of the Raya Tehsil of Sialkot District, after independence from Britain in 1947 Narowal became tehsil headquarters - in 1991 the district of Sialkot was bifurcated, Narowal then became the capital of the newly formed Narowal District.
