Arabic Text Latin Alphabet Transliteration English Translation


وطنٌ مدَّ على الأفقِ جناحا
وارتدى مجد الحضارات وِشاحا
بُوركتْ أرضُ الفراتين وطن
عبقري المجد عزماً وسماحا

هذه الأرض لهيبٌ وسنا
وشموخٌ لا تُدَانِيه سَما
جبل يسمو على هَامِ الدنا
وسهولٌ جسَّدت فينا الإبا
بابل فينا وآشور لنا
وبنا التاريخ يَخْضَلُّ ضِيا
نحن في الناس جمعنا وحدنا
غضبة السيف وحلم الأنبياء

حين أوقدنا رمال العُرْب ثورة
وحملنا راية التحرير فكرة
منذ أن لزَّ مُثنى الخيل مُهْره
وصلاح الدين غطاها رِماحا

قسماً بالسيف والقول الأبي
وصهيل الخيل عند الطلب
إننا سور مداها الأرحب
وهدير الشعب يوم النُّوَّب
أورثتنا البِيْدُ رايات النبي
والسجايا والشموخ اليعربي
مَجِّدي، جَذْلَى، بلاد العرب
نحن أشرقنا فيا شمس أغربي

الجباه السُّمْرُ بِشْرٌ ومحبة
وصمودٌ شقَّ للإنسان دربه
أيها القائد للعلياء شعبه
اجعل الآفاق للصولات ساحة

يا سرايا البعث يا أُسْدَ العرين
يا شموخ العز والمجد التليد
ازحفي كالهول للنصر المبين
وابعثي في أرضنا عهد الرشيد
نحن جيل البذل فجر الكادحين
يا رحاب المجد عدنا من جديد
أمة تبني بعزم لا يلين
وشهيدٍ يقتفي خَطْوَ شهيد

شعبنا الجبار زهو وانطلاق
وقلاع العز يبنيها الرفاق
دُمْتَ للعُرْبِ مَلاذاً يا عراق
وشموساً تجعل الليل صباحا

A Fatherland has extended (its) wing[s] over the horizon,
And wore the glory of civilizations as a scarf -
Blessed be the land of the two rivers
A Fatherland of glorious determination and tolerance.

This homeland is made of flame and splendor
And pride unmatched by the highest heaven.

[It is] a mountain that rises above the tops of the world
And a plain that embodies our pride.
Babylon is inherent in us and Assyria is ours,
And with us History [itself] radiates with light,
We alone, from among mankind, combined [in possession]
The anger of the sword and the patience of the prophets.

When we ignited the sands of Arabs into a revolution
And bore the flag of liberty as an ideology
Since AlMothanna of Horses charged
And Saladin covered it with spears

A home land that extended its wings over the horizon,
And wore the glory of civilization as a garment -
Blessed be the land of the two rivers,
A homeland of glorious determination and tolerance.

A home land that extended its wings over the horizon,
And wore the glory of civilization as a garment -
Blessed be the land of the two rivers,
A homeland of glorious determination and tolerance.

We swear by sword and the speech of pride
And the neighing of horses when in duty
We swear by sword and the speech of pride
And the neighing of horses when in duty
We are the wall of its limitless range
And the roarings of people in days of war
We inherited the flags of the Prophet from desert
And the Arabian nature and pride
Glorify well the Land of the Arabs
We have risen, oh Sun set
The tanned foreheads are filled with laughter and love
And firmness that cruised for humans their way
The tanned foreheads are filled with laughter and love
And firmness that cruised for humans their way
O you who is leading his people to supreme elevation
Make of the horizons our battlefields

A home land that extended its wings over the horizon,
And wore the glory of civilization as a garment -
Blessed be the land of the two rivers,
A homeland of glorious determination and tolerance.

A home land that extended its wings over the horizon,
And wore the glory of civilization as a garment -
Blessed be the land of the two rivers,
A homeland of glorious determination and tolerance.

Oh company of al-Ba'th, you pride of lions,
Oh pinnacle of pride and of inherited glory,
Oh company of al-Ba'th, you pride of lions,
Oh pinnacle of pride and of inherited glory,
Advance, like terror, to a certain victory
And resurrect the time of al-Rashid in our land!
We are a generation who give all and toil to the utmost.
Oh expanse of glory, we have returned anew
To a nation that we build with unyielding determination.
And each martyr follows the footsteps of a former martyr.
Our mighty nation is filled with pride and vigour
And the comrades build the fortresses of glory.
Our mighty nation is filled with pride and vigour
And the comrades build the fortresses of glory.
May you remain forever a refuge for all the Arabs
Oh Iraq
And be as suns that turn night into day!

A home land that extended its wings over the horizon,
And wore the glory of civilization as a garment -
Blessed be the land of the two rivers,
A homeland of glorious determination and tolerance.

A home land that extended its wings over the horizon,
And wore the glory of civilization as a garment -
Blessed be the land of the two rivers,
A homeland of glorious determination and tolerance.
