Lyrics[change | change source]
|عيشي بلادي عاش اتحاد إماراتنا
عشت لشعب دينه الإسلام هديه القرآن
حصنتك بسم الله يا وطن
بلادي بلادي بلادي بلادي
حماك الله شرور الزمان
أقسمنا أن نبني نعمل
نعمل نخلص نعمل نخلص
مهما عشنا نخلص نخلص..
دام الأمان وعاش العلم يا إماراتنا
رمزالعروبة كلنا نفديكِ
نفديك بالأرواح يا وطن.
|Ishy Bilady, Aash at-tihaadu imaaratina
Dinu hul islamu Hadhyu Ul Qura`anu
Hassantuk Bismillah Ya Watan
Bilady Bilady Bilady Bilady
Hamaki Ilahu Shuroor az-zaman
Aqsamna an nabnya na'amal
naamal nukhlis naamal nukhlis
Mahma Eshna nukhlis nukhlis
daamal amaanu wa aash al-alam ya imaaratina
Ramzul Arubati Kulluna nafdeeqi
Nafdeeka Bil arwah ya Watan
|Live, my country, the unity of our Emirates.
You have lived for a nation,
Whose religion is Islam, and whose guide is the Qur'an.
I made you stronger in the name of God, O homeland.
My country, my country, my country, my country.
May God protect you from evil through all times. We have vowed to build and work.
Work sincerely, work sincerely,
As long as we live we'll be sincere, sincere. May safety last, and the flag rise, O Emirates.
Symbol of Arabness.
We all make sacrifices for you, we supply you with our blood.
We sacrifice for you with our souls, O homeland.
