Lyrics[edit]

Arabic Transliteration English translation

منبت الأحرار
مشرق الأنوار
منتدى السؤدد وحماه
دمت منتداه وحماه
عشت في الأوطان
للعلا عنوان
ملء كل جنان
ذكرى كل لسان
بالروح، بالجسد
هب فتاك لبي نداك
في فمي وفي دمي
هواك ثار نور ونار
اخوتي هيا للعلا سعيا
نشهد الدنيا أن هنا نحيا
بشعار
الله الوطن الملك

Root of the free,
Rising place of the Lights,
Forum of glory and its protector,
May you perpetuate as its forum and its protector.
May you live among the homelands
As an address for grandeur
Filling every garden
conveyed by every tongue.
With the spirit, with the body,
Your son has come to answer your call.
In my mouth and in my blood,
Your love stirred up as light and fire.
Let’s go brothers! Heading for grandeur,
Making the world witness that we here perpetually live
With the motto:
God, homeland, king.
