Sta pa lara ke biley zalmey sarona
Kaharo da dunya malkona der shi
Zama her na shi da sta khokaley baghona
Da Delhi takht herawom chi rapa yad shi
Da khpal khukaley pakhtoonkhwa da ghra sarona
Da raqeeb da jhwand mathah ba tar pa tar kram
Chi pa thoro pakhtana ka guzarona
Ka thamam dunya yaw khwata bal khwa ye
Zama khwah de sta khalee tash dagarona
Ahmad sha ba sta qader Kher na ka
Ka wana si da thamam jahan malkona
By blood, we are immersed in love of you.
The youth lose their heads for your sake.
I come to you and my heart finds rest.
Away from you, grief clings to my heart like a snake.
I forget the throne of Delhi
when I remember the mountain tops of my Afghan land.
If I must choose between the world and you,
I shall not hesitate to claim your barren deserts as my own.
