"Ishy Bilady" (Arabic: عيشي بلادي‎, lit. 'Long Live my Country') is the national anthem of the United Arab Emirates (Arabic: النشيد الوطني الإماراتي‎, romanizedan-Nashīd al-Waṭanī al-ʾImārātī, lit. "Emirati National Anthem"). It was officially accepted as the national anthem of the United Arab Emirates after the formation of the country in 1971.[1]

History and use[edit]

After the country's formal nationalisation in 1971, Saʿad ʿAbdil Wahāb—an Arab composer who composed national anthems of other Arab states—created the melody for "ʿĪshī Bilādī" in that same year; however, the anthem did not have lyrics until 1986, which were written by ʿĀrif al-Shaykh.[1][2]

In November 2018, a choir consisting of musicians from 190 countries sang "ʿĪshī Bilādī" as part of Dubai Expo 2020's celebrations for marking the 47th National Day on 2 December. The performance was filmed by Nāyla al-Khāja, the country's first female film director and producer.[3]

عيشي بلادي عاش اتحاد إماراتنا
عشت لشعب دينه الإسلام هديه القرآن
حصنتك باسم الله يا وطن
بلادي بلادي بلادي بلادي
حماك الإله شرور الزمان
أقسمنا أن نبني نعمل
نعمل نخلص نعمل نخلص
مهما عشنا نخلص نخلص
دام الأمان وعاش العلم يا إماراتنا
رمز العروبة
كلنا نفديكِ بالدماء نرويكِ
نفديك بالأرواح يا وطن[2][4]

English translation[edit]

Long live my country, the unity of our Emirates lives.
You have lived for a nation whose religion is Islam and guide is the Qur'an.
I made you stronger in Allah's name—oh, homeland!
My country, my country, my country, my country.
Allah has protected you from the evils of the time.
We have sworn to build and work –
work sincerely, work sincerely!
As long as we live, we will be sincere.
The safety has lasted and the flag has lived—oh, our Emirates!
The symbol of Arabism:
We all sacrifice for you and give you our blood;
We sacrifice for you with our souls—oh, homeland!
