Arabic Lyrics Transcription Translation

بلادي بلادي
بلادي يا أرضي يا أرض الجدود
فدائي فدائي
فدائي يا شعبي يا شعب الخلود
 
بعزمي وناري وبركان ثأري
وأشواق دمي لأرضي وداري
صعدت الجبالا وخضت النضالا
قهرت المحالا عبرت الحدود
 
بعزم الرياح ونار السلاح
وإصرار شعبي بأرض الكفاح
فلسطين داري فلسطين ناري
فلسطين ثاري وأرض الصمود
 
بحق القسم تحت ظل العلم
بأرضي وشعبي ونار الألم
سأحيا فدائي وأمضي فدائي
وأقضي فدائي إلى أن تعود
 
فدائي

Fidāʼī

My country, my country
My country, my land, land of my ancestors
Fida'i, Fida'i
Fida'i, my people, people of eternity

With my determination, my fire and the volcano of my vendetta
With the longing in my blood for my land and my home
I have climbed the mountains and fought the wars
I have conquered the impossible, and crossed the frontiers

With the resolve of the winds and the fire of the weapons
And the determination of my nation in the land of struggle
Palestine is my home, Palestine is my fire,
Palestine is my vendetta and the land of withstanding

By the oath under the shade of the flag
By my land and nation, and the fire of pain
I will live as a Fida'i, I will remain a redeemer,
I will die as a Fida'i - until my country returns

Fida'i

  • Fidāʼī: redeemer, one who risks his life voluntarily; one who sacrifices himself; hence the word fedayeen.
