The "National Anthem of the Islamic Republic of Iran" (Persian: سرود ملی جمهوری اسلامی ایران‎, romanizedSorude Melliye Jomhuriye Eslâmiye Irân; pronounced [sʊˌɾuːde melˌlije dʒʊmhuːˌɾije eslɒːˌmije iːˈɾɒn]) is the national song of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Due to the death of Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989, Iran adopted its current anthem after a competition the following year.[1][2]

The anthem was composed by Hassan Riyahi, and the lyrics were written by Sayed Bagheri. It is the fourth official Iranian national anthem.

History[edit]

The national anthem was adopted by Iran in 1990, replacing the previous national anthem used during the reign of Ruhollah Khomeini, called Pâyande Bâdâ Irân. It was the second shortest anthem in the world, after Japan's anthem, Kimigayo, with seven stanzas.

Concurrently, this anthem is not recognized by a number of Iranian opposition groups and diaspora communities, who continue to use Ey Iran instead.

Persian lyrics[edit]

Persian script (official) UniPers Latin alphabet IPA transcription

سر زد از افق مهر خاوران
فروغ دیده‌ی حق‌باوران
بهمن فر ایمان ماست
پیامت ای امام، استقلال، آزادی، نقش جان ماست
شهیدان، پیچیده در گوش زمان فریادتان
پاینده مانی و جاودان
جمهوری اسلامی ایران
[3]

Sar zad az ofoq mehre xâvarân,
Foruqe dideye haq bâvarân.
Bahman, farre Imâne mâst.
Payâmat ey Emâm, esteqlâl, âzâdi, naqše jâne mâst.
Šahidân, picide dar guše zamân faryâdetân.
Pâyande mâniyo jâvedân.
Jomhuriye Eslâmiye Irân!

English translation[edit]

Upwards on the horizon rises the Eastern Sun,
The light in the eyes of the believers in truth,
Bahman is the zenith of our faith.
Your message, O Imam, of independence, freedom, is imprinted on our souls.
O Martyrs! Your clamors echo in the ears of time.
Enduring, continuing, and eternal.
The Islamic Republic of Iran![5]
