Encyclopedia > Ey Iran

Ey Iran (Persian: ای ایران) (O! Iran) is a famous and most popular Persian anthem in Iran. The lyrics were written by Hossein Gol-e-Golab in 1946, and the music was composed by Ruhollah Khaleghi.

Gol-e-Golab was inspired to write the song by patriotism. He has been quoted to have said: "In 1944, the footsteps of the invading armies in the streets were enough to rattle any patriot and inspired me to write this anthem. Professor Ruhollah Khaleghi wrote the music and despite all the political opposition, it found its way into the heart and soul of the people."

Ey Iran is often mistaken for being a present or previous Persian (Iranian) national anthem. It has only briefly had official status; however, it occupies a place in Iranian popular culture similar to that of Men of Harlech in Wales. It was, however, unofficially used in the transitionary period between the time of the Shah (deposed February, 1979) until the adoption of the national anthem of the Islamic Republic. But still, the dissidents (mostly Monarchists and Republicans) and patriots alike adapt the song as an alternative to the current and previous anthems. In fact, most Iranians are more familiar with "Ey Iran" than the official and previous national anthem mostly because it is the only anthem which truly praises Iran. With the anthem of imperial Iran praising the shah (the king) and the anthem of the Islamic Republic praising the revolution, the Iranian patriots tend to prefer "Ey Iran" because its about Iran and Iran alone with political affiliations aside. Men of Harlech is a song and military march describing events at the battle for Harlech Castle in 1408, which pitted the forces of Owain Glyndŵr against the future Henry V of England. ...

English translation
اي ايران اي مرز پرگهر ، اي خاكت سرچشمه هنر
دور از تو انديشه بدان ، پاينده ماني و جاودان
اي دشمن ار تو سنگ خاره اي من آهنم، جان من فداي خاك پاك ميهنم
مهر تو چون شد پيشه ام، دور از تو نيست انديشه ام
در راه تو كي ارزشي دارد اين جان ما، پاينده باد خاك ايران ما
سنگ كوهت در و گوهر است، خاك دشتت بهتر از زر است
مهرت از دل كي برون كنم، برگو بي مهر تو چون كنم،
تا گردش جهان دور آسمان به پاست، نور ايزدي هميشه رهنماي ماست
مهر تو چون شد پيشه ام، دور از تو نيست انديشه ام
در راه تو كي ارزشي دارد اين جان ما، پاينده باد خاك ايران ما
ايران اي خرم بهشت من، روشن از تو سرنوشت من
گر آتش بارد به پیكرم، جز مهرت در دل نپرورم
از آب و خاك و مهر تو سرشته شد گلم، مهر اگر برون رود تهی شود دلم
مهر تو چون شد پيشه ام، دور از تو نيست انديشه ام
در راه تو كي ارزشي دارد اين جان ما، پاينده باد خاك ايران ما
Ey Irân, ey marz e por-gohar
Ey khâkat sarchešme ye honar
Dur az to andiše ye badân
Pâyande mâni to jâvedân
Ey došman ar to sang e khârei man âhanam
Jân e man fadâ ye khâk e pâk e mihanam
Mehr e to chon šod pišeam
Dur az to nist andišeam
Dar râh e to, key arzeši dârad in jân e mâ
Pâyande bâd khâk e Irân e mâ

Sang e kuhat dorr o gohar ast
Khâk e daštat behtar az zar ast
Mehrat az del key borun konam
Bar-gu bi mehr e to chun konam
Tâ gardeš e jahân o dor e âsemân bepâ'st
Nur e izadi hamiše rahnamâ ye mâ'st
Mehr e to chon šod pišeam
Dur az to nist andišeam
Dar râh e to key arzeši dârad in jân e mâ
Pâyande bâd khâk e Irân e mâ

Irân, ey khorram behešt e man
Roušan az to sarnevešt e man
Gar âtaš bârad be peykaram
Joz mehrat dar del naparvaram
Az âb o khâk o mehr e to serešte šod gelam
Mehr agar borun ravad tohi šavad delam
Mehre to chon šod pišeam
Dur az to nist andišeam
Dar râh e to key arzeši dârad in jân e mâ
Pâyande bâd khâk e Irân e mâ
Oh Iran, oh bejeweled land
Oh, your soil is the wellspring of the arts
Far from you may the thoughts of evils be
May your lasting eternal be
Oh enemy, if you are of stone, I am of iron
May my life be sacrificed for my pure motherland
Your love is my calling
My thoughts are never far from you
In your cause, when do our lives have value?
May the land of our Iran be eternal

The stones of your mountain are jewels and pearls
The soil of your valleys are better than gold
When could I rid my heart of your affection?
Tell me, what will I do without your affection?
As long the turning of the earth and the cycling of the sky lasts
The light of the Divine will always guide us
Your love is my calling
My thoughts are never far from you
In your cause, when do our lives have value?
May the land of our Iran be eternal

Iran oh my green paradise
Lighted is my fate because of you
If fire rains on my body
Other than your love I will not cherish in my heart
Your water, soil and love molded my clay
If your love leaves my heart it will become barren
Your love is my calling
My thoughts are never far from you
In your cause, when do our lives have value?
May the land of our Iran be eternal
