National anthem of Mauritania

The lyrics of the National Anthem of Mauritania

نشيد وطني موريتاني

بلادَ الأُبَاةِ الهُدَاةِ الكِرامْ
وحِصْنَ الكِتابِ الذي لا يُضَامْ
أيا مَوْريتانِ رَبيعَ الوئامْ
ورُكْنَ السَّماحةِ ثَغْرَ السلامْ

سنَحْمي حِماك ونحِن فداكِ
ونَكْسُو رُبَاكِ بِلَوْن الأمَلْ
وعند نِداكِ نُلَبِّي أجَلْ

بُدورُ سَمَائِكِ لَمْ تُحْجَبِ
وشمسُ جَبِينِكِ لَمْ تَغرُبِ
نَماكِ الأمَاجدُ مِن يَعْرُبِ
لإفْرِيقِيَّا المَنْبَعِ الأعْذَبِ

رَضَعْنَا لِبانَ النَّدَى والإبَا
سَجَايَا حَمَلْنَ جَنًى طَيِّبَا
ومَرْعًى خَصِيباً، وإنْ أجْدَبَا
سَمَوْنَا، فَكَانَ لَنَا أرحَبَا

سَقَيْنا عَدُوَّكِ صَاباً ومُرًّا
فَمَا نالَ نُزْلًا ولا مُسْتَقَرَّا
نُقَاومُهُ حَيْثُ جَاسَ ومَرَّا
نُرَتِّلً إنَّ مَعَ العُسْرِا يُسْرَا

قَفَوْنَا الرسولْ بِنَهْجٍ سَمَا
إلى سِدْرَة المجد فوقَ السَّمَا
حَجَزْنَا الثرَيَا لَنَا سُلَّمَا
رسَمْنَا هُنالِكَ حَدَّ الحِمى

أخَذْنَاكِ عَهْدًا حَمَلْنَاكِ وَعْدًا
ونُهدِيكِ سَعْداً لِجِيلٍ أطَلْ

سنَحْمي حِماك ونحِن فداكِ
ونَكْسُو رُبَاكِ بِلَوْن الأمَلْ
سنَحْمي حِماك ونحِن فداكِ
وعند نِداكِ نُلَبِّي أجَلْ

Bilada-l ubati-l hudati-l kiram

Bilāda l-ubāti l-hudāti l-kirām

Land of the proud, the guided and the noble

Land of the proud, the guided and the noble
The fortress of the Book that can’t be bound
O Mauritania, the spring of harmony
The corner of tolerance, the haven of peace

We will protect you with our lives
and paint your hills with the color of hope
When you call, “yes!” is our answer

The crescent moons in your sky won’t wane
and the sun on your forehead won’t set
The noble Arabs enriched you
and the purest source is Africa’s

We drank the milk of dew and pride
A nature that brought a good harvest
and a fertile pasture, even when it’s barren
welcoming us as we ascend

We made your enemy drink a bitter downpour
so he couldn’t settle or rest
We resist him wherever he goes
Praying “Surely with hardship comes ease”

We followed the prophet along the path of the heavens
to the tree of glory above the sky
occupying The Pleiades as our stairway
drawing our border there

We took you as a vow and carried you as a promise
we happily give you up to the future generation

We will protect you with our lives
and paint your hills with the color of hope
We will protect you with our lives
and paint your hills with the color of hope

The National Anthem of Mauritania was written by an unknown author and composed by Rageh Daoud.

The motto of Mauritania: Honor, Fraternity, Justice.
