National anthem of  Afghanistan
Lyrics Abdul Bari Jahani
Music Babrak Wassa
Adopted 2006

The Afghan National Anthem (Pashto: ملی سرود‎ - Milli Surood; Persian: سرود ملی‎‎ - "Surūd-e Millī") was adopted and officially announced by a Loya Jirga in May 2006. According to article 20 of the Afghan Constitution, the national anthem shall be in Pashto with the mention of "God is Greatest" as well as the names of the various tribes of Afghanistan.[1] The lyrics were written by Abdul Bari Jahani and the music was written by German-Afghan composer Babrak Wassa (de).[2]

Historic anthems[edit]

An anthem was adopted in 1973 after the abolition of the Afghan monarchy, when the Republic of Afghanistan was set up by President Daoud Khan.[citation needed] Its lyrics were written by Abdul Rauf Benawa and the music was composed by Abdul Ghafoor Breshna. Another anthem was adopted after the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan was set up in 1978. Its lyrics were written by Sulaiman Layeq.[citation needed]

During the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan period, Afghanistan was in the unique position of having no national anthem, as the ruling Taliban outlawed music throughout the country.

First stanza

دا وطن افغانستان دى
دا عزت د هر افغان دى
كور د سولې، كور د تورې
هر بچى يې قهرمان دى

Dā watan Afγānistān dai,

Kor də sole, kor də ture,
har bačai ye qahramān dai

This land is Afghanistan,
it is the pride of every Afghan
The land of peace, the land of sword,
each of its sons is brave

این کشور افغانستان است
این عزت هر افغان است
خانهٔ صلح، خانهٔ شمشیر
هر فرزندش قهرمان است

This is the country of every tribe,
The land of Balochs and Uzbeks
Pashtuns and Hazaras,

دا هيواد به تل ځلېږي
لكه لمر پر شنه آسمان
په سينې كې د آسيا به
لكه زړه وي جاويدان

Dā hiwād ba təl dzaleγ̌i,
ləka lmar pər šnə āsmān
Pə sine ke də Āsyā ba,
ləka zrrə wi ǰāwidān

This land will shine for ever,
like the sun in the blue sky
In the chest of Asia,
it will remain as heart for ever

این کشور همیشه تابان خواهد بد
مثل آفتاب در آسمان کبود
در سینهٔ آسیا
مثل قلب جاویدان

in kishvar hamēshi tābān khwahda bud
misl āftāb dar āsmān kabud
dar sēni-yi-āsyā
misl qalb jāvidān

We will follow the one God
We all say, "Allah is the greatest!",
we all say, "Allah is the greatest!",
we all say, "Allah is the greatest!"
