"as-Salām al-Malakī al-ʾUrdunī" (instrumental)
"as-Salām al-Malakī al-ʾUrdunī" (Arabic: السلام الملكي الأردني, lit. 'The Royal Anthem of Jordan') is the national anthem of Jordan, adopted in 1946. The lyrics were written by ʿAbdel Munʿim al-Rifāʿī and the music was composed by ʿAbdul al-Qādir al-Tanīr. The first version of the lyrics was very short as it only contained the first stanza of the current version. Since then, the anthem has been expanded. The abridged version of the anthem is usually used, while the full version is reserved for special occasions.
