National Anthem of Qatar in Arabic

قسما قسما
قسما بمن رفع السماء
قسما بمن نشر الضياء
قطر ستبقي حرة تسمو بروح الاوفياء
سيروا على نهج الألى
سيروا وعلى ضياء الانبياء
قطر بقلبي سيرة عز وأمجاد الاباء
قطر الرجال الاولين
حماتنا يوم النداء
وحمائم يوم السلام
جوارح يوم الفداء
قسما قسما
قسما بمن رفع السماء
قسما بمن نشر الضياء
قطر ستبقى حرة تسمو
بروح الأوفياء

In my heart, Qatar is a way that respects the achievements of our forefathers
Qatar is the land of the foremost men
Who protect us in time of distress,
Doves they can be at times of peace,
Warriors they are at times of sacrifice (2x)
I Swear, I Swear
Swearing by the one who raised the sky
Swearing by the one who spread the light
Qatar will always be free
By the spirit of the loyal
