To The Soil I Belong

I belong to this soil

As I was shaped by roots found in it

And I will seep deep into it

No other soil is fertile enough for me

As I bloom only in the soil where

There is loyalty, bravery and compassion

I stand here on this surface

Known as my Homeland

Fertility is in our soil

The land of brave men

Bravery is in our blood

I will lay down my life

For this soil

No other soil is suitable for me

And I may meet my end here

Only on this surface

My ruins will seep deep into it

And another me will be born

Who will belong to this soil

Who will praise its fertility and strong roots

And will seep deep

This will go on

As long as Allah wills

And as long as we are true to our faith.
