Your Opinion Counts
Why is making new year resolutions important to you?
Helps me stay focused on my goals and vision in life
Helps me renew my spirit to improve myself and others
It's the tradition of the Prophet (pbuh) & successful people
Helps me evaluate my progress, success & failures
 
 
It is not piety, that you turn your faces to the east and to west, true piety is this: To believe in God, and the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, and the Prophets, to give one's substance, however cherished, to kinsmen, and orphans, the needy, the travelers, beggars, and to ransom the slave to perform the prayers, to pay the alms, they who fulfill their covenant when they engaged in a covenant and endure with fortitude misfortunes, hardships, and peril; these are they who are true in their faith, these are the truly God fearing. Quran 2:177.

National Anthem of Pakistan

The National Anthem of Pakistan approved by the Government in August 1954, is a harmonious rendering of a three-stanza composition with a tune based on eastern music but arranged in such a manner that it can be easily played by foreign bands.
The Anthem is evocative in spirit, extolling Pakistan as the centre of faith and freedom, a land of beauty and strength drawn from the people and the country. The words touch upon the various facets of national life, with an invocation for integrity of Pakistan.

The Verses of the Anthem have been composed by a renowned poet of Pakistan, Abul Asar Hafeez Jullundhri; while the tune has been composed by Ahmed G. Chagla, the well known musician and composer.

The Anthem written in Urdu is a unique poetical composition, as in spite of its brevity it is a lyrical exultation for the quintessence of Pakistan its Islamic foundation, ideology, ethos, aspirations and its intrinsic strength.

Listen to the Anthem

Following is the Urdu Anthem:

Following is the Urdu Transliteration:

Pak sarzamin shad bad
Kishware haseen shad bad
Tunishane azmealishan arze Pakistan
Markazeyaqin shadbad.

Pak sarzamin ka nizam quwate akhuwati awam
Qaum, mulk, Sultanat
Painda ta binda bad shad, bad man zele murad.

Parchame sitarao hilat
Rahbare tarraqio ka mal
Tarjumane mazishane hal jane istaqbal
Sayyai, khudae zul jalal.

Following is the English Wording:

Blessed be the sacred Land
Happy be the bounteous realm
Symbol of high resolve
Land of Pakistan
Blessed be thou citadel of faith

The order of this sacred land
Is the might of the brotherhood of the People
May the nation, the country, and the state
Shine in glory everlasting
Blessed be the goal of our ambition

This Flag of the Crescent and Star
Leads the way to progress and perfection

Interpreter of our past, glory of our present
Inspiration of our future
Symbol of Almighty's protection
