National Anthem

The national anthem, written by His Excellency Sheikh Mubarak bin Saif Al Thani, was played for the first time on December 7, 1996, during the summit of the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, which was held in Doha at that time.


Swearing by God who raised the sky

Swearing by God who spread the light

Qatar will always be free

Elevated by the souls of the loyal

Follow the path of the ancestors

And the prophets' guidance

In my heart

Qatar is an epic of dignity and glory

Qatar is land of the forefathers

Who protect us on call up to sacrifice

Dovish at times of peace

Hawkish at times of sacrifice
