      Listen to the       National Anthems of All African Countries

Every day a different African country's national     Anthem will play the entire day on this page.   This gives us an opportunity to listen to all the
National Anthems of each country in Africa.   There are 53 countries in Africa.  Some have
said that Liberia has one of the best Anthems
in the world.  Now we can listen to all the 
National Anthems of Africa and compare ours
with theirs.

The other reason for this exercise is to provide our people the opportunity to listen to, and to learn about other African countries, see their flags, hear their National Anthems, and enjoy the very beautiful music we call, a country's National Anthem. Much of our information comes from Nationalanthem.info.    
Please take note of the dates each

country's Anthem is played.  We begin with
South Africa on the 5th of August and end with
São Tomé and Principe on September 24, 2013.
 
If you want to know more about any of the
African countries, just click on the name of 
the particular country below on the left in blue among the list of 53 countries and you will have the information right there at your finger tip.

__________________________________________


One interesting factor about the listing of the  African countries in the order in which they are listed.  They are listed with the country with the highest per capital income above and the lowest per capital income at the bottom of the list. Liberia is 6 up from the bottom.   Total number of countries is 53.

يا بلادي يا بلادي
بجهادي وجلادي
ادفعي كيد الأعادي والعوادي
واسلمي اسلمي اسلمي
اسلمي طول المدى

إننا نحن الفداء
ليبيا ليبيا ليبيا

يا بلادي أنت ميراث الجدود
لارعى الله يداً تمتد لك
فاسلمي إنا على الدهر جنود
لا نبالي إن سلمت من هلك
وخذي منا وثيقات الد
إننا يا ليبيا لن نخذلك
لن نعود للقيود
قد تحررنا وحررنا الوطن
ليبيا ليبيا ليبيا

يا بلادي يا بلادي

إننا نحن الفداء
ليبيا ليبيا ليبيا

جرّد الأجداد عزماً مرهفا
يوم ناداهم منادٍ للكفاح
ثم ساروا يحملون المصحفا
باليد الأولى وبالأخرى السلاح
فإذا في الكون دين وصفا
وإذا العالم خير وصلاح
فالخلود … للجدود
إنهم قد شرفوا هذا الوطن
ليبيا ليبيا ليبيا

يا بلادي يا بلادي
بجهادي وجلادي
ادفعي كيد الأعادي والعوادي
واسلمي اسلمي اسلمي
اسلمي طول المدى
إننا نحن الفداء
ليبيا ليبيا ليبيا

يا ابن ليبيا يا ابن آساد الشرى
إننا للمجد والمجدُ لنا
مذ سرونا حمد القوم السرى
بارك الله لنا استقلالنا
فابتغوا العلياء شأواً في الورى
واستعدوا للوغى أشبالنا
للغلاب … يا شباب
إنما الدنيا كفاح للوطن
ليبيا ليبيا ليبيا

يا بلادي يا بلادي
بجهادي وجلادي
ادفعي كيد الأعادي والعوادي
واسلمي اسلمي اسلمي
اسلمي طول المدى
إننا نحن الفداء
ليبيا ليبيا ليبيا

English translation [edit source | editbeta]

Oh my country,
Oh my country,
With my struggle and gladiatorial patience,
Drive off all enemies' plots and mishaps
Be saved, be saved, be saved, be saved all the way
We are your sacrifices
Libya, Libya, Libya!

Oh my country, You're the heritage of my ancestors
May Allah not bless any hand that tries to harm you
Be saved, we are for ever your soldiers
No matter the death toll if you've been saved
Take from us the most credential oaths, we won't let you down, Libya
We will never be enchained again
We are free and have freed our homeland
Libya, Libya, Libya!

Oh my country,
Oh my country,
With my struggle and gladiatorial patience,
Drive off all enemies' plots and mishaps
Be saved, be saved, be saved, be saved all the way
We are your sacrifices
Libya, Libya, Libya!

Our grandfathers stripped a fine determination when the call for struggle was made
They marched carrying Qur'an in one hand,
and their weapons by the other hand
The universe is then full of faith and purity
The world is then a place of goodness and godliness
Eternity is for our grandfathers
They have honoured this homeland
Libya, Libya, Libya!

Oh my country,
Oh my country,
With my struggle and gladiatorial patience,
Drive off all enemies' plots and mishaps
Be saved, be saved, be saved, be saved all the way
We are your sacrifices
Libya, Libya, Libya!

Oh son of Libya, oh son of lions of the wild
We're for honour and the honours are for us
Since the time of us being honoured, people thanked our generosity and honourableness
May Allah bless our Independence
Oh Libyans, seek the dizzy heights as a position in mankind
Our cubs, be prepared for the foreseen battles
Our youths, to prevail
Life is only a struggle for homeland
Libya, Libya, Libya!

Oh my country,
Oh my country,
With my struggle and gladiatorial patience,
Drive off all enemies' plots and mishaps
Be saved, be saved, be saved, be saved all the way
We are your sacrifices
Libya, Libya, Libya!

Translated by: Dr Khalid Ben Rahuma

The former verse glorifying King Idris, now no longer used, translates:

Extend on Idris the honour, the descendant of the conqueror
He is the symbol of struggle and Jihad
He raises our flag high
And we follow him, freeing our homeland,
He allows praise of his throne
And raises hope for Libya in heaven,
A free flag
Over a rich country,
Libya, Libya, Libya.
