Qatar’s National Anthem, ‘As-Salam al-Amiri,’ was adopted in 1996.

According to the Amiri Diwan, in English, the lyrics translate to:


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 the land of the forefathers
Who protect us on call-up to sacrifice
Dovish at times of peace
Hawkish at times of sacrifice
