Qatari National Anthem Lyrics in Arabic (Arabic Script)

قسماً بمن رفع السماء
قسماً بمن نشر الضياء
قطر ستبقى حرة
تسمو بروح الأوفياء

سيروا على نهج الأولى
وعلى ضياء الأنبياء
قطر بقلبي سيرة
عز وأمجاد الإباء
قطر الرجال الأولين
حماتنا يوم النداء
وحمائم يوم السلام
جوارح يوم الفداء

Swearing by God who erected the sky
Swearing by God who spread the light
Qatar will always be free
Sublimed by the souls of the sinceres

1. Procede thou on the manners of the ascendants
And advance on Prophet’s guidance
In my heart,

Qatar is land of the early men
Who protect us at time of distress,
Doves they can be at times of peace,
Warriors they are at times of sacrifice
