Reuternberg, a Russian Jew and the then-Conductor of the Selangor Club Orchestra, had been ordered to compose a state anthem for Kedah with $1000 as the reward. He successfully composed it in 25 minutes time. The plan to create it was initiated by the British Adviser of Kedah, S.L. Jones.
The anthem was recomposed by Tunku Yakob with the addition of its lyrics written by Hj. Mohammad Sheriff, the then Menteri Besar and the melody from J.F. Agustin in 1949.
- Allah selamat Sultan Mahkota
- Berpanjangan usia di atas Takhta
- Memelihara ugama Nabi kita
- Negeri Kedah serata-rata
- Allah save the Sultan crowned,
- Longevity bestow upon his throne,
- As he upholds our Prophet's faith,
- In all corners of Kedah state.
