Emirati anthem lyrics (English translation)
Live my country, that the unity of our Emirates has lived
May you live for a nation
Whose religion is Islam and guide is the Qur'an
I made you fortified by the name of Allah, my homeland
My country, My country, My country, My country
May God protect you from the evil through time
We have sworn to build and work
we will Work and sincere, Work and sincere
As long as we live, we will be sincere
may the safety last and the flag rise, O Emirates
The symbol of Arabism
We all sacrifice for you, we supply you with our blood
We sacrifice for you with our souls O homeland
