Ishy Bilady is the national anthem (a song that represents the country) of the seven United Arab Emirates. The tune was written in the year 1971 without words to sing. Then, in the year 1996 Aref Al Sheikh Abdullah Al Hassan came up with words for the song.

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
بالدما نرويكِ
نفديك بالأرواح يا وطن.

Translation[change | edit source]

Ishi Biladi Asha tihaadu imaaratinah

Ishti Lishabin

Dinu hul islamu Hadhyu Ul Qura`anu

Hassantuk Bismillah Ya Watan

Biladi Biladi Biladi Biladi

Hamaki Elahu Shuroorazaman

Aqsamna an nabneya na'amal

naamal nukhlis naamal nukhlis

Mahima Ehna nukhlis nukhlis

daamal amaanwa aashal alam ya imaaratinah

Ramzul Aroobati Kulluna nafdeeqi

Biddima narweeqi

Nafdeeqa Bil arwah ya Watan

Live, my land; may the union of our emirates live.
May you live for a people
Whose religion is Islam, and
whose guide is the Qur'an. May I strengthen you in the name of God, O homeland.
My land, my land, my land, my land.
May God protect you from the evils of time.
We have vowed to build, to work.
To work, to be loyal, to work, to be loyal.
However long we may live, to be loyal, to be loyal.
May safety endure, and the flag live, O Emirates,
The symbol of Arab-ness.
We would all make sacrifices for you, and with our blood saturate you.
We would give up our souls for you, O homeland.
