Panukilan refers to literature in Tausug. Written works of the olden time in Lupa'sug (Sulu) were done through nukil writing. Most of their writings were religious or Islamic knowledge, rituals and songs or somewhat like psalm. Most of their songs were ballad accompanied by instruments like 'gabbang' and 'biyula' (violin).
