Arabic Lyrics Transcription Translation

فِدَائِي فِدَائِي فِدَائِي
يَا أَرْضِي يَا أَرْض الجُدُود
فِدَائِي فِدَائِي فِدَائِي
يَا شَعْبِي يَا شَعْب الخُلُود
بِعَزْمِي وَنَارِي وَبُرْكَانِ ثَأرِي
وَأَشْوَاقِ دَمِي لِأَرْضِي وَدَارِي
صَعَدْتُ الجِبَالَا وَخُضْتُ النِّضَالَا
قَهَرْتُ المُحَالَا عَبَرْتُ الحُدُود
بِعَزْمِ الرِّيَاح وَنَارِ السِّلَاح
وَإِصْرَارِ شَعْبِي بِأَرْض الكِفَاح
(فِلَسْطِينُ دَارِي فِلَسْطِينُ نَارِي)
فِلَسْطِينُ دَارِي ودرب انتصاري
فِلَسْطِينُ ثَارِي وَأَرْضِ الصُّمُود
بِحَقِّ القَسَم تَحْتَ ظِلِّ العَلَم
بِأَرْضِي وَشَعْبِي وَنَارِ الأَلَم
سَأَحْيَا فِدَائِي وَأَمْضِي فِدَائِي
وَأَقْضِي فِدَائِي إِلَى أَن تَعُود

Biʿazmi r-riyāḥ wa nāri s-silāḥ
Wa iṣrāri šaʿbi biʼarḍ al-kifāḥ
Filasṭīnu dārī wa darbu intṣāri
(Filasṭīnu dārī Filasṭīnu nārī)
Filasṭīnu thārī wa arḍi aṣ-ṣumūd

Biḥaqqi l-qasam taḥta ẓilli l-ʿalam
Biʼarḍī wa šaʿbī wa nāri l-alam
Saʼaḥyā fidāʼī wa amḍī fidāʼī
Wa aqḍī fidāʼī ilā an taʿūd


Warrior, warrior, warrior,
Oh my land, the land of the ancestors
Warrior, warrior, warrior,
Oh 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, and the path of my triumphal
(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 warrior, I will remain a warrior,
I will die as a warrior - until my country returns


  • Fidā'ī: the word fidāʼīyīn is the Arabic plural of fidāʼī, which means "sacrifice"/"one who sacrifice himself" (A literal translation of fidāʼīyīn might be "martyrs") and it originally comes from Persia - where the first band of fedayeen (also famous as "Hashshashin") was formed by Hassan-i Sabbah. The Palestinian fedayeen (from the Arabic fidā'ī, plural fidā'iyūn, فدائيون) are militants or guerrillas of a nationalist orientation from among the Palestinian people. Most Palestinians consider the fedayeen to be "freedom fighters".
