About the Arabic language
* Arabic is the sacred language of the Muslims and until the conflict of opinion about the Quran arose, it was primarily an oral language.
* Arabic is a Semitic language that was first heard on the Arabian Peninsula, and as different groups moved into the Middle East and neighbouring areas, they carried these languages with them. At the start of the 7th Century AD the Arab Conquests took speakers of various Arabic dialects, along with their religion of Islam out of the Arabian Peninsula and into the majority of the Middle East and North Africa.
* Under the Umayyad dynasty which occurred from 661 AD to 750 AD, Arabic continued to be the chosen language of poetry, enriching its literature with Persian translations and other languages, and acquiring new terminology in the linguistic, philosophy and theology fields.
* Arabic literature reached its so called golden age under the Abbasid rule from Baghdad (750 – 1258 AD) when linguistic studies reached an unprecedented level of sophistication. Many scholars, whether Arab, non-Arab, Muslim, Christian or Jew took part in this development of intellectual life with Arabic as the preferred language.
