"Ey Reqîb" (ئهٔ ره‌قیب in Sorani) is sung by Kurdish nationalists as the Kurdish national anthem. It was written by the Kurdish poet Dildar in 1938, when he was in a Iranian jail. Ey Reqîb means literally "Hey Guardian", but nowadays the title is usually given in English as "Hey Enemy". The song was originally written in Soranî but is also sung in the Kurdish dialect of Kurmancî.

It is also the national anthem of the Kurdistan Autonomous Region of Iraq.

[edit] EY REQÎB (Kurmancî)

Ey reqîb her maye qewmê Kurdî ziman
Naşike u danaye topên zeman
Kes neben Kurd dimirin, kurd jin diven
Jin dive qet nakeve, Ala Kurdan
Em xortên Medya u Keyxusrewin
Seyr bike xwîna diyan me da rijan
Kes neben Kurd dimirin, Kurd jin diven
Jin dive qet nakeve, Ala Kurdan
Em xortên renge sor u şorişin
De xwin nexşîn bikin taca cihan
Kes nebe Kurd dimirin, Kurd Jin diven
Jin dive nakeve, Ala Kurdan
Lawên Kurd rabûne ser pêyan wek şêran
Dîn iman u ayin îman Kurd u Kurdistan
Kes neben Kurd dimirin, Kurd jin diven
Jin dive qet nakeve, Ala Kurdan
Lawên Kurd tev hazir u amadene
Can fidane can fida tev can fida
Kes neben Kurd dimirin, Kurd jin diven
Jin dive qet nakeve, Ala Kurdan

[edit] ئهٔ ره‌قیب (Soranî)

  • In Arabic Alphabet:

"ئهٔ ره‌قیب هه‌ر ماوه‌ قه‌ومی کوردزمان

نایشکێنێ دانه‌ری تۆپی زه‌مان.

که‌س نه‌ڵێ کورد مردوه‌، کورد زیندوه‌

زیندوه‌ قه‌ت نانه‌وێ ئاڵاکه‌مان

لاوی کورد هه‌ستایه‌ سه‌ر پێ وه‌ک دلێر

تا به‌ خوێن نه‌خشین ده‌کا تاجی ژیان

که‌س نه‌ڵێ کورد مردوه‌، کورد زیندوه‌

زیندوه‌ قه‌ت نانه‌وێ ئاڵاکه‌مان

ئێمه‌ رۆڵهٔ میدیا و که‌یخوسره‌وین

دینمان ئایینمان، هه‌ر کوردستان

که‌س نه‌ڵێ کورد مردوه‌، کورد زیندوه‌

زیندوه‌ قه‌ت نانه‌وێ ئاڵاکه‌مان

ئێمه‌ رۆڵهٔ ره‌نگی سوور و شۆڕشین

سه‌یریکه‌ خوێناویه‌ رابردوومان

که‌س نه‌لێ کورد مردوه‌، کورد زیندوه‌

زیندوه‌ قه‌ت نانه‌وێ ئاڵاکه‌مان

لاوی کورد حازر و ئاماده‌یه‌

گیان فیدانه‌ گیان فیدا هه‌ر گیان فیدا

که‌س نه‌ڵێ کورد مردوه‌، کورد زیندوه‌

زیندوه‌ قه‌ت نانه‌وێ ئالاکه‌مان."

  • Latin script transliteration:
Ey raqîb her mawe qewmî kurd ziman,
Nay şikênê danerî topî zeman.
Kes nelê kurd mirduwe; kurd zînduwe,
Zînduwe qet nanewê alakeman.
Lawî kurd hestaye ser pê wek dilêr,
Ta be xuên nexşîn deka tacî jiyan.
Kes nelê kurd mirduwe, kurd zînduwe,
Zînduwe qet nanewê alakeman.
Ême roley Midya u Keyxusrewîn,
Dînman, ayînman her Kurdistan
Kes nelê kurd mirduwe, kurd zînduwe,
Zînduwe qet nanewê alakeman.
Ême roley rengî sûr u şorişîn,
Seyrîke xuênawiya raburdûman.
Kes nelê kurd mirduwe, kurd zînduwe,
Zînduwe qet nanewê alakeman.
Lawî kurdî hazir u amadeye,
Giyan fîdane, giyan fîda, her giyanfîda.
Kes nelê Kurd mirduwe, kurd zînduwe,
Zînduwe qet nanewê alakeman

[edit] Oh Enemy! (English)

Oh enemy, the Kurdish nation is alive, its language is yet spoken
It shall not be defeated by the weapons of any age
Let no one say Kurds are dead
Kurds are living
Kurds are living, their flag will never fall
We, the youth are the red colour of the revolution
Watch our blood that we shed on this way
Let no one say Kurds are dead
Kurds are living
Kurds are living, their flag will never fall
We are the children of Medya and Keyhusrew
Both our faith and religion are our homeland
Both our faith and religion are Kurd and Kurdistan
Let no one say Kurds are dead
Kurds are living
Kurds are living, their flag will never fall
The Kurdish youth have risen like lions
To adorn the crown of life with blood
Let no one say Kurds are dead
Kurds are living
Kurds are living, their flag will never fall
The Kurdish youth are ever present and
Forever will be ready to sacrifice their lives
Sacrifice each life they have, each life they have!!!...
DILDAR
