Baghdad University Anthem

This anthem is written by Dr. M.H.Al-Yaseen and it is translated into English by: Abdul-Hassan Sh.Qassim Assistant professor

Time settled on its balcony;
Man’s culture sang a symphony;

 It’s a title for all time;
 A university whose Quran is in rhyme;

* * *

 The first letter drawn in a book;
 With a first figure glittered as a hook;

 They hugged here in Iraq together;
 As a sister with her lovely brother;

 There was a door wide open;
 For creation always not often;

* * *
 Our university is proud;
 For science and arts has a large crowd;

 It is deeply rooted in Babylon;
 And blossomed in Assyria should be known;

 Baghdad was brightened by Islam;
 When it was built in circular dam;

* * *
 As a famous city Baghdad became;
 And was crowding when it got this fame;

 Whatever we give we feel no sorry;
 We fight and sacrify to get glory;

 Tigris and Euphrates are Iraq;
 Where valies and fountains can stack;

* * *

 It began to flash up in Arab homeland;
 Baghdad University in prophet’s land;

 Baghdad gets a lovely title;
 On every lip through lifecycle;

 Iraq is chosen its ancestor;
 As an institute for all Arab to foster;

 Generations of all Arab states;
 Decorate their chest with a gold necklace;
