National Anthem of Iraq

Play The National Anthem of Iraq ( Lyrics )

Mawtini is a popular poem written by the Palestinian poet Ibrahim Touqan (Arabic: إبراهيم طوقان‎) circa 1934. It was the de facto national anthem of Palestine since then and until 1967. It is also recognized in Syria and Algeria, as well as other Arab states, as an anthem as to show their support for the Palestinian cause.
The original music was composed by Muhammad Fuliefil (Arabic: محمد فليفل‎). During the years it became very popular through the Arab world.

Iraq ( العراق‎ al-‘Irāq, Kurdish: Êraq ), officially the Republic of Iraq (Arabic: About this sound جمهورية العراق Jumhūriyyat al-‘Irāq; Kurdish: كۆماری عێراق‎ Komar-i ‘Êraq), is a country in Western Asia.
