(Bang-e-Dra-101) Tarana-e-Milli

The Anthem Of The Islamic Community

Cheen-o-Arab Humara, Hindustan Humara
Muslim Hain Hum, Watan Hai Sara Jahan Humara

China and Arabia are ours; India is ours.
We are Muslims, the whole world is ours.

Touheed Ki Amanat Seenon Mein Hai Humare
Asan Nahin Nitana Naam-o-Nishan Humara

God’s unity is held in trust in our hearts.
It is not easy to erase our name and sign.

Dunya Ke Butkadon Mein Pehla Woh Ghar Khuda Ka
Hum Uss Ke Pasban Hain, Woh Pasban Humara

Among the idol temples of the world the first is that house of God;
We are its keepers; it is our keeper.

Taighon Ke Saye Mein Hum Pal Kar Jawan Huwe Hain
Khanjar Hilal Ka Hai Qoumi Nishan Humara

Brought up in the shadow of the sword, we reached maturity;
The scimitar of the crescent moon is the emblem of our community.

Maghrib Ki Wadiyon Mein Goonji Azan Humari
Thamta Na Tha Kisi Se Seel-e-Rawan Humara

In the valleys of the west our call to prayer resounded;
Our onward flow was never stemmed by anyone.

Batil Se Dabne Wale Ae Asman Nahin Hum
Sou Baar Kar Chuka Hai Tu Imtihan Humara

We, oh heaven, are not to be suppressed by falsehood!
A hundred times you have tested us.

Ae Gulistan-e-Aundlas ! Woh Din Hain Yaad Tujh Ko
Tha Teri Daliyon Par Jab Ashiyan Humara

Oh garden of Andalusia! Do you remember those days,
When our nest was in your branches?

Ae Mouj-e-Dajla! Tu Bhi Pehchanti Hai Hum Ko
Ab Tak Hai Tera Darya Afsana Khawan Humara

Oh waves of the Tigris! You also recognize us;
Your river still relates our story.

Ae Arz-e-Pak! Teri Hurmat Pe Kat Mare Hum
Hai Khoon Teri Ragon Mein Ab Tak Rawan Humara

Oh land of purity! We fell and died for your honour;
 Our blood still courses through your veins.

Salar-e-Karwan Hai Meer-e-Hijaz (S.A.W.) Apna
Iss Naam Se Hai Baqi Aram-e-Jaan Humara

The Lord of Hijaz is the leader of our community;
From this name comes the peace of our soul.

Iqbal Ka Tarana Bang-e-Dra Hai Goya
Hota Hai Jadah Pema Phir Karwan Humara

Iqbal’s song is like the bell of a caravan;
Once more our caravan measures the road.


  1. kia comment karoon........hehehe

  2. travelling in india you might find might find my blog Humara Hindustan usefull

  3. Accepting this is accepting our identity. My father, born in 1935, kept on singing it all his life.

  4. The poetry of iqbal is imortant asset for Muslims...

    1. Noone can write like this poetry.
      Expt Allama iqbal.

  5. Best poet of the world. simply superb

  6. what does bang e dara mean?

  7. Lol ye wohi aadmi tha na jisne likha tha saare jahan se achha hindostan hamara..fir use noble prize nahi mila rabindranath tagore ko mila.. aur fir likha ye wala

    1. Pata karta hoon. Par, mere khyal se aapko urdu nahi ati. Agar aati hoti to Allama Iqbal ko theek se samajh paate. Yeh jis darje ke Shayar the, mujh jaise jaahil ko ye samajhne ke liye poori zindagi khapani pad sakti hai. One more thing. Awards doesn't mean anything to us(Muslims). Marne ke baad mil jayega. Aap logon ki tangdasti or gumrahi par taras aata hai. Har kahin nafrat ke beej bone chale aate ho.

    2. Tagore got noble prize in 1913, and this song was written in 1909...

    3. yeah coz India b uska tha aur Ummat e Muslima b...aur Hindustanio k rawaye se uska yaqeen aur b kamil ho gya tha k ummat hi sb kuch ha watan aur b mil jate hain sb se zaroori cheez ALLAH or uska Rasool (S.A.W) ha

    4. Ji ye wahi shakhs hai jinko nobel prize nahi mila, kyunki ye british emperor ke loyal nahi the. Rabinder naath tagore wrote Jan Gan Man in welcoming George V. Guess for who the term " Bharat Bhagya Vidhata" is used for.

    5. Bhai Alama pehly watniyat ko manty thy but bad mn in ka zahan badal gyaa or yeah ummat ko manany lagy mean saray muslaman jahaaan bhi rehty hyn sab aik watan k hyn un mn koi division nhi

  8. Saare Jahan se achcha Hindustan hamara...

  9. I love Iqbal no one defeat him to all over the world.

  10. Saare jahan se acha Pakistan hamara....

  11. Sad to see muslims take so much pride in spreading their faith through violence. Imagine in this time and age someody saying that khanjar hilaal ka hai quomi nishaan hamaara. Only a savage quom would adopt such mottos.

  12. The status of Iqbal is beyond what words can describe. Nobel prize is just dust before what what Iqbal has achieved. He was not a mulla. He did not have beard. But his poems resonates truth which is why no intellectual Muslim in Indian sub continent can do without understanding Iqbal. Just imagine his status that there are so many Islamic scholars and sects of Islam in Indian subcontinent,yet no scholar or politician can disagree with Iqbal, but almost all scholars irespective of their sects refer to his poetry for inspiration. This is way too much than a poet can ask for. His ideas are not just inspirational but school of philosophy on what should be the society, character and politics be like.

  13. slams, i am with aamir rana,s comment.i understand great minds keep on revisiting their own thoughts in their lives.same is the case with allama iqbal. pl.dont rate peaple like iqbal & tagore with ordinary dunyadar log ,these type of minds are above duyavi lust & greediness. thanks

  14. Pakistan Zindabad Sary Jahan Se acha Pakistan Hamara Hum bubuly hain is k ye gulsitan Hamara

  15. This is my my favorite "song".

  16. Greatest patriotic song even since the 19th century.
    Great Iqbal May God bless you high place in heaven.
