مِـنْ مَـعْشَرٍ سَنَّتْ لَهُمْ iiآبَاؤُهُمْ
ولِـكُـلِّ قَـوْمٍ سُـنَّةٌ وإِمَـامُها
لا يَـطْبَعُونَ ولا يَـبُورُ iiفَعَالُهُمْ
إذْ لا يِـميلُ مَعَ الهَوَى أحْلامُها
Noble we; our fathers wielded power bequeathed to them, dealt law to the nations, each tribe its lawgiver.
All our lineage faultless, no light words our promises; not for us the vain thoughts, passions of common men.
The original version of this piece was exhibited in Algeria at Moustafa Basha Palace museum in May-June 2013
