“"Nashid as-Salaam as-Sultani”" (The Sultan's Anthem) Oman'’s national anthem, “"Nashid as-Salaam as-Sultani,”" was adopted in 1932, with lyrics by Rashid bin Uzayyiz al Khusaidi, music by James Frederick Mills, and arrangement by Bernard Ebbinghaus. New words were written after Qaboos bin Said al Said gained power in 1970. The anthem was first performed by the band of a British ship as a salute to the Sultan during an 1932 visit to Muscat, and the bandmaster of the HMS Hawkins was asked to write a salutation to the Sultan on the occasion of his visit on the ship.
