Assalaamu'alaikum wa rahmatullah

I am just lazy to check the other site. So, I would just dump everything here. This patriotic song is from Nigina Amankulava from Tajikistan. The song is about motherland and it is in Persian language. Persian is not only used in Iran but also in Tajikistan which is a Turkic name for Persian people in Central Asia. There is a small pocket of Persian communities in Southwestern and Western China.. The majority of those in Tajikistan are Sunnah Muslims of Hanafi jurisprudence while those in Western China are Isma'ili Shi'a Muslims (Nizari Imami branch).


Watan surudi ishq tu
Zi qalbi man sadā kona
Daro na hāyi mehr tu
Marāzi gham rahā kona
Watan libā-e-zindagi
Watan nabā-e-zindagi

Watan umedu ārzu
Watan safā-e-zindagi

Watan tu jism jān-e-man
Zamīn-e-man zamān-e-man

Tu mādari ya gānayi
Azīz meherbāni man

Watan tu soya bar sara
Tu mehrumo hu akhtara
Surudi mehrate watan
Babahru barhame baram

I guess if you know Urdu, then you can also understand some of the lyric because Urdu also consists words from Dari (Persian), lol. I can understand some too but I just cannot fluently speak in it, haha.

Sealed with prayers for mercy, peace and love, amin!
