National Anthem of Syria

Homat el Diyar

حُمَاةَ الدِّيَار‎

Lyrics:

Arabic:

حـماةَ الـديارِ عليكمْ سـلامْ
ّأبَتْ أنْ تـذِلَّ النفـوسُ الكرامّ
عـرينُ العروبةِ بيتٌ حَـرام
وعرشُ الشّموسِ حِمَىً لا يُضَامْ
ربوعُ الشّـآمِ بـروجُ العَـلا
تُحاكي السّـماءَ بعـالي السَّـنا
فأرضٌ زهتْ بالشّموسِ الوِضَا
سَـماءٌ لَعَمـرُكَ أو كالسَّـما
رفيـفُ الأماني وخَفـقُ الفؤادْ
عـلى عَـلَمٍ ضَمَّ شَـمْلَ البلادْ
أما فيهِ منْ كُـلِّ عـينٍ سَـوادْ
ومِـن دمِ كـلِّ شَـهيدٍ مِـدادْ؟
نفـوسٌ أبـاةٌ ومـاضٍ مجيـدْ
وروحُ الأضاحي رقيبٌ عَـتيدْ
فمِـنّا الوليـدُ و مِـنّا الرّشـيدْ
فلـمْ لا نَسُـودُ ولِمْ لا نشـيد؟

Arabic (transliterated):

Humāta d-diyāri alaykum salām
Abat an tazilla n-nufūsu l-kirām
Arīnu l-urūbati baytun harām
Wa-arshu sh-shumūsi himan lā yudām
Rubū’u sh-sha’āmi burūju l-‘ala
Tuhāki s-samā’a bi-āli s-sana
Fa-ardun zahat bi-sh-shumūsi l-wida
Samā’un la-‘amruka aw ka-s-sama
Rafīfu l-‘amāni wa-khafqu l-fu’ād
Alā alamin damma shamla l-bilād
Amā fī-hi min kulli aynin sawād
Wa min dami kulli shahīden midād
Nufūsun ubātun wa mādin majīd
Wa-rūhu l-adāhi rāqībun atīd
Fa-min-na l-walīdu wa-min-na r-rashīd
Fa-lim lā nasūdu wa-lim lā nashīd

English:

Guardians of the Homeland,
Peace on you;
Our proud spirits will
Not be subdued.
The abode of Arabism,
A hallowed sanctuary;
The seat of the stars,
An inviolable preserve.
Syria’s plains are
Towers in the heights,
Resembling the sky
Above the clouds.
A land resplendant
With brilliant suns,
Becoming another sky,
Or almost a sky.
