National Anthem of Pakistan
Pak sar zamin shad bad
Kisware haseen shad bad
Tunishane azmealishan arze Pakistan
Pak sarzamin ka nizam, quwate akhuwati awam
Qaum, mulk, sultanat
Painda ta binda bad, shad bad man zele murad
Parchame sitarao hilal
Rahbare tarraqio kamal
Tarjumane mazishane hal jane istaqbal
Sayyai, Khudae zul jalal
