What I just learned about Arabic

Posted on August 11, 2009. Filed under: arab culture, language, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , |

I recently learned that the Arabic language was created through the deliverance of the Quran.  The language was created for the purpose of religion.

I have always said that language and culture are inseparable. In fact, all  CAL Learning programs are founded on that belief. If language and culture cannot be separated, and Arabic language was created for religious purposes, I would expect Arabic culture and language to be closely tied to religion.

One example of the connection between language and religion is the basic greeting. The Arabic greeting, as-salamu alaykum, which means “peace be upon you”, is from the Quran. The language comes from the religion.

Are you an Arabic speaker? Can you give other examples of the connection between Arabic language and religion?
