Qatari anthem lyrics (English translation)
I Swear, I Swear
Swearing by the one who raised the sky
Swearing by the one who spread the light
Qatar will always be free
By the spirit of the loyal
Travel the high road
Travel by the guiding light of the Prophets
Qatar In my heart is a way
That respects the achievements of our forefathers
Qatar is land of the foremost men
Who protect us in time of distress,
Doves they can be at times of peace,
Warriors they are at times of sacrifice (Repeat 2×, then repeat first four lines)
