That's beautiful BuJ :)

I hope your countrymen/women, continue to support young UAE with her growth - she needs you folks. I am sure the challenges are many for your generation, but it certainly is a new & path breaking era - quite exciting as well.

AHSANTUM... BISMILLAH YA WATAN!!

Wow, I still remember the national anthem! If there ever was a case of being more loyal than the King then this would have to be it :D

Al-
It's " HASANTUK " and not "AHSANTUM" ..

rosh said...

IYM/BuJ/Al/lilly - what does
"HASANTUK" mean?

Al - you are far better, I cannot recall beyond the first two sentences.

BuJ said...

IYM, I thought it was A7santum like AL- as well...

but Rosh.. i'm not sure what that word means.. but i think it means something like "defend" or protect, fortify etc..

man I'm an angloarab.. and this arabic is way beyond my level hehehe.. see why i need to return to my roots pronto!

IYM:

How dare you challenge my version of the national anthem? You blasphemer!

/me takes out his beheading tools :P

But, really? I thought it was Ahsantum? I will check up online. And if I am right, girl, you are in for some maaaajor trashing :P

Just kidding hehe.

al-republican said...

OK, you were right, IYM. For all those interested you can find the Arabic text here.

Inspire Your Mind said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay.. I won't get beheaded now..
See.. " Hasantuk Besmellah Ya Watan" means " I'll protect you my country In the name of God " ..

Roshy,

I have a new post up on my blog. I know you requested something new so I thought I'd inform.

Cheers!

rosh said...
