The Qaumī Tarāna (Urdu: قومی ترانہ) is the national anthem of Pakistan. At independence, on August 14, 1947, Pakistan did not have a national anthem. When the flag was hoisted at the independence ceremony it was accompanied by the song, "Pakistan Zindabad, Azadi Paendabad". The flag itself had only been approved by the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan three days earlier. The national anthem of Pakistan was written some time later by the Urdu poet Abu-Al-Asar Hafeez Jullundhri.

Literal translation Poetic translation

Blessed be the sacred land,
Happy be the bounteous realm.
Thou symbol of high resolve,
O Land of Pakistan!
Blessed be the citadel of faith.

The order of this sacred land,
The might of the brotherhood of the people,
May the nation, the country, and the state,
Shine in glory everlasting!
Blessed be the goal of our ambition.

The flag of the crescent and star,
Leads the way to progress and perfection,
Interpreter of our past, glory of our present,
inspiration for our future!
Shade of God, the Glorious and Mighty.

May the holy land, stay glad;
Beauteous realm, stay glad.
Thou, the sign of high resolve—
O Land of Pakistan!
Citadel of faith, stay glad.

Order of the holy land,
Power of fraternity of the populace;
The nation, country, and domain;
Ever luminous remain!
The cherished goal, stay glad.

Flag with the star and crescent,
The leader of progress and ascent,
Dragoman of past, the pride of present;
Soul of the future!
Shadow of the God of grandeur.

سوہݨی دھرتی خُش رہے، سوہݨا دیس خُش رہے
توں اک عظیم سوگندھ دی نشانی آں
پاکستان دی زمین !
بھروسے دا گڑھ ، خُش رہے

سوہݨی دھرتی دا نظام
لوکاں دے بھائی چارے دی طاقت
لوکاچاری ، دیس تے راج
ہمیشا رہ تے چمکدا رہ !
سدھراں دی منزل خُش رہ !

چند تارے والا چعھنڈا
ترقی تے کامیابی دا رہنما اے
کل دا عکس ، اج دی شان
مستقبل نوں جی آیاں نوں
رب دی چھاں

ਸੁੱਚੀ ਧਰਤੀ ਖੁਸ਼ ਰਹੋ
ਸੋਹਣੀ ਮਾਤ-ਭੂਮੀ ਖੁਸ਼ ਰਹੋ
ਤੂੰ ਇੱਕ ਮਹਾਨ ਸੌਗੰਧ ਦੀ ਨਿਸ਼ਾਨੀ ਹੈ
ਪਾਕਿਸਤਾਨ ਦਾ ਦੇਸ਼
ਧਰਮ ਦੇ ਕੇਂਦਰ, ਖ਼ੁਸ਼ ਰਹੋ.

ਪਵਿਤੱਰ ਧਰਤੀ ਦੀ ਵਿਵਸਥਾ
ਜਨਤਾ ਦੀ ਏਕਤਾ ਦੀ ਸ਼ਕਤੀ ਹੈ
ਰਾਸ਼ਟਰ, ਦੇਸ਼ ਅਤੇ ਸਰਕਾਰ
ਹਮੇਸ਼ਾ ਚਮਕਦੇ ਰਹੇ!
ਆਰਜ਼ੂਆਂ ਦੀ ਮੰਜ਼ਿਲ ਖੁਸ਼ ਰਹੋ.

ਚੰਨ ਅਤੇ ਤਾਰੇ ਵਾਲਾ ਝੰਡਾ
ਵਿਕਾਸ ਅਤੇ ਸਿੱਧਿ ਦਾ ਮਾਰਗਦਰਸ਼ਕ ਹੈ
ਅਤੀਤ ਦਾ ਤਰਜੁਮਾਨ,1 ਵਰਤਮਾਨ ਦੀ ਸ਼ਾਨ,
ਭਵਿੱਖ ਦੀ ਪ੍ਰੇਰਨਾ!
ਸ਼ਕਤੀਸ਼ਾਲੀ ਅਤੇ ਮਹਾਨ ਰੱਬ ਦਾ ਪ੍ਰਤੀਕ.
