Malay Translation
Allah Lanjutkan Usia Sultan
Dilanjutkan Allah usianya Sultan
Adil dan murah memerintah watan
Ditaati rakyat kiri dan kanan
Iman yang saleh Allah kurniakan
Allah berkati Perak Ridzuan
Allah selamatkan Negeri dan Sultan.
May Allah grant our Sultan with a long life
Who rules our peoples justly and kindly
Served by our loyal society
May He bless us with pure and noble souls
O Almighty Allah, bless Perak Darul Ridzuan
May Allah save the State and the Sultan.
