* It is incumbent on every Muslim to excel in the Arabic language in order to correctly understand the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
Arabic language is highly honored since:
a) Allah, the Ever-Knowing and Ever-Wise, chose Arabic to be the language in which His final message was revealed.
b) The main proof of this revelation is its linguistic miracle.
c) Allah, the Almighty, preserved His Book in its original Arabic text.
d) Allah has revealed the Holy Qur’an in Arabic so that the people who received it first, Arab as they were, could apprehend it.
* Scholars have defined detailed rules for the linguistic analysis and comprehension of the Arabic texts of the Qur'an and Hadith.
* These rules should be strictly applied for deriving any legal ruling.
