Bahrainona (Our Bahrain) is the national anthem of Bahrain. Adopted in 1971 upon independence, it was written by Mohamed Sudqi Ayyash (1925-). The composer is unknown.
In 2002 the ruler Hamad ibn Isa Al-Khalifa declared himself king and his country a kingdom. The national anthem was subsequently changed. The below anthem is thus outdated.
Yahmi himaha amirunal-humam;
Qamat nahj al-hidayati war-risalati wal adalati wal salam!
Ashat dawlatul Bahrain
Country of security,
Nation of hospitality,
Protected by our courageous Amir,
Founded on the principles of the Message,
Justice and Peace,
Long live the State of Bahrain!
