The "National Anthem of the Islamic Republic of Iran" (Persian: سرود ملی جمهوری اسلامی ایران, romanized: Sorude Melliye Jomhuriye Eslâmiye Irân; pronounced [sʊˌɾuːde melˌlije dʒʊmhuːˌɾije eslɒːˌmije iːˈɾɒn]) is the national song of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Due to the death of Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989, Iran adopted its current anthem after a competition the following year.
The anthem was composed by Hassan Riyahi, and the lyrics were written by Sayed Bagheri. It is the fourth official Iranian national anthem.
The national anthem was adopted by Iran in 1990, replacing the previous national anthem used during the reign of Ruhollah Khomeini, called Pâyande Bâdâ Irân. It was the second shortest anthem in the world, after Japan's anthem, Kimigayo, with seven stanzas.
Concurrently, this anthem is not recognized by a number of Iranian opposition groups and diaspora communities, who continue to use Ey Iran instead.
