Tuqan was born in Nablus, Palestine during Ottoman Empire times. He was the brother of poet Fadwa Tuqan and he tutored and influenced her to write poetry. Ibrahim belonged to the prominent Tuuqan family that governed Nablus for much of the 18th and 19th centuries.


  • The sword and the pen
    Not talking nor quarreling
    Are our symbols
    Our glory and covenant
    And a duty to fulfill it
    Shake us
    Our honor
    Is an honorable cause
    A raised flag
    O, your beauty
    In your eminence
    Victorious over your enemies
    My homeland
    My homeland.
