Afghan anthem lyrics (English translation)
This land is Afghanistan!
It is the pride of every Afghan.
The land of peace, the land of the sword.
Its sons are all brave.
This is the country of every tribe,
The land of Baloch and Uzbeks,
Pashtuns and Hazaras,
Turkmen and Tajiks.
With them, Arabs and Gujjars,
Pamiris, Nuristanis,
Brahuis and Qizilbash,
Also Aimaqs and Pashayis.
This Land will shine for ever,
Like the sun in the blue sky.
In the chest of Asia,
It will remain like the heart forever.
We will follow the one God;
We all say, Allah is great!
We all say, Allah is great!
