Bitaqat Hob, often also known/transliterated as Bitakat HobBitaqat Hub or Bitakat Hub was the Moroccan entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1980 in The Hague performed by Samira Bensaïd. It is the only Moroccan entry to date, and the first and, at present, only one to be performed wholly in the Arabic language.

The song is about peace, and a vision of a war-free and hatred-free society. On the night it was performed 5th following Luxembourg and preceding Italy. At the close of voting, it finished in 18th place with 7 points, all of which came from the Italian jury.

Lyrics

Nahna atfal kull el-dunya
Talbeen aisha radhia hanya
Ma feehash heqd, ma feehash nar
W la khissam beyn jar w jar

Nahna atfal kull el-dunya
Talbeen aisha radhia hanya
Ma feehash heqd, ma feehash nar
W la khissam beyn jar w jar

Ma feehash shmeys beyn el-alwan
W el-assl wahed, w el-kull ikhwan
Ma bghina hroub w la alam
Baghyin hayat kulha salam

Ma feehash shmeys beyn el-alwan
W el-assl wahed, w el-kull ikhwan
Ma bghina hroub w la alam
Baghyin hayat kulha salam

Feeha el-aman w el-haq w el-kheirty
Feeha el-wafa' w el-hobb el-kbeer
Bitaqat hob w eshwaq harra
Mesh mou men jbeen ghadra

Ma'aha er-rajaa, kull er-rajaa
Leylaqi aalam youlabbi en-nida'
Nahna atfal kull ed-dunya
Talbeen aisha radhia hanya

La lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lalalala lala lala...

La lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lalalala lala lala...[1]

A place with no color discrimination
And the essence is one and we are siblings of each other
We didn't want neither wars nor pain
We wanted a life full of peace

A place with no color discrimination
And the essence is one and we are siblings of each other
We didn't want neither wars nor pain
We wanted a life full of peace

A safe place where you can find justice and prosperity
Where there's loyalty and so much love
A love card with warm greetings
Not sent by the traitors of peace

With the card we send our wishes
That the world receives the card and responds to our call
Signed by the children of the whole world
Who are asking for a simple happy life

La lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lalalala lala lala...

La lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lala lalalala...
Lalalala lala lala...
