To highlight the virtue of the Arabic language it is sufficient to note that it is the language of the Holy Qur’aan, the eternal miracle, which was revealed to be away of life for mankind until the Hour begins. Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, chose the Arabic language to be the vessel which would carry this light and guidance to mankind. This is mentioned in approximately ten places in the Qur’aan, such as the verse in which Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation):
“And indeed We have put forth for men, in this Qur’ân every kind of similitude in order that they may remember.
An Arabic Qur’ân, without any crookedness (therein) in order that they may avoid all evil which Allâh has ordered them to avoid, fear Him and keep their duty to Him”
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
The Arabic language is the symbol of Islam and its people
