Thaana (transliterated):

Gaumee mi ekuverikan matee tibegen kureeme salaam,
Gaumee bahun gina hyo du’aa kuramun kureeme salaam.
Gaumee nishaanang hurmataa eku bo lambai tibegen
Audaa nakan libigen e vaa dida-ak kureeme salaam.
Nasraa nasiibaa kaamyaabu-ge ramzakang himenee
Fessaa rataai hudaa ekii fenumun kuriime salaam.

Fakhraa sharaf gavmang e hoodai devvi batalun
Zikraage mativerun lhentakun adugai kuriime salaam.
Dhivehiinge ummay kuri arai silmaa salaamatugai
Dhivehiinge nan mollu vun edai tibegen kuriime salaam.

Minivankamaa madaniyyataa libigen mi ‘aalamugai
Dinigen hitaa matakun tibun edigen kuriime salaam.
Dinaai verinnang hyo hitun hurmay adaa kuramun
Siidaa vafaaterikan matii tibegen kuriime salaam.
Davlatuge aburaa ‘izzataa mativeri vegen abada’
Audaana vun edi heyo du’aa kuramun kuriime salaam.


We salute you in this national unity.
We salute you, with many good wishes in the national tongue,
Bowing the head in respect to the national symbol.
We salute the flag that has such might ;
It falls into the sphere of victory, fortune and success
With its green and red and white together, and therefore we salute it.

To those heroes who sought out honour and pride for the nation
We give salute today in auspicious verses of remembrance.
May the nation of the Maldivian Islanders advance under guard and protection
And the name of the Maldivian Islanders become great.
Thus we pledge as we salute.

We wish for their freedom and progress in this world
And for their freedom from sorrows, and thus we salute.
With full respect and heartfelt blessing towards religion and our leaders,
We salute you in uprightness and truth.
May the State ever have auspicious honour and respect.
With good wishes for your continuing might, we salute you.
