The Anthem Of The Islamic Community
Muslim Hain Hum, Watan Hai Sara Jahan Humara
China and Arabia are ours; India is ours.
We are Muslims, the whole world is ours.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tha Teri Daliyon Par Jab Ashiyan Humara
Oh garden of Andalusia! Do you remember those days,
When our nest was in your branches?
Ab Tak Hai Tera Darya Afsana Khawan Humara
Oh waves of the Tigris! You also recognize us;
Your river still relates our story.
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.
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.
Hota Hai Jadah Pema Phir Karwan Humara
Iqbal’s song is like the bell of a caravan;
Once more our caravan measures the road.
