Hymn of Chechnya (Шатлакхан Илли – The Shatlakh’s Song) is the anthem of the Republic of Chechnya in the Russian Federation. The words by Hodj Akhmed Kadyrov are set to music by Umar Beksultanov.

Lyrics In Chechen:

Харцоно цIе тесна хьо ягарх,
Нохчийчоь, ца йоьжна, гIаьттина яха.
Кавказан ткъес хилла, маршонан ага,
Хьан лаьттан сий дина яхь йолчу наха.

Барт болу хьан къаьмнаш – мах боцу беркат!
Хьо йоцург, Нана яц, нохчийн халкъ хьаст.
Тхайн дехар, тхан дерзар Даймехкан кхерчахь,
Декъалдар доьхуш ду, хьуна беш хастам.

Башламан баххьашкахь дайн синош дуьссу.
Органа тулг Iено ненан мотт буьйцу.
Исбаьхьа совгIат хьо, азаллехь долла!
Шатлакхан илли ду тхуна некI белла!

Къинхьегам, хьан хьуьнарш хазделла шайна,
Халкъаца лерам бар кхаъ хуьлда хьуна.
Машаран гIаролехь ирсан некъ тайна,
Сий долуш Нохчийчоь ехийла тхуна!

Lyrics In English:

No matter how unfair the wildfire of injustice in Chechnya,
You kept falling and rising again.
The lightning of Caucasus, the cradle of liberty,
Your honor was kept by your proud people.

The peace between your peoples is priceless wealth!
There is no other motherland for the Chechens.
Our lives and our deaths in the heart of our homeland,
We beg you to bless.

The ancestors’ souls descend to Bashlam’s peak.
The wave of Argun speaks our mother tongue.
Our lives blessed us with a great gift – you!
Shatlakh’s song gave us strength!

Love for work and courage, respect for all peoples,
Let this be pleasant news for you.
The Guardian of freedom, who has found its path
Live for us, oh worthy Chechnya!
