In order to understand the foundation and beginning of any science, studying its origin and evolution is very significant. Studying and analyzing the history and background of a science can help us to achieve a better recognition of that science and to increase our interest in it.

For this purpose, the Siaq accounting method, with its history of at least 1400 years, is studied by a descriptive-analytical approach, and the required information is collected by library and documentary method of research.
