Review

Abstract:

Arabic has proved its presence since ancient times. In one of the eras, it was able to absorb the incoming sciences through translation. Then its authorship began; consequently, thousands  of terms and concepts emerged to the extent that Arabs integrated such sciences, as engineering, medicine and others in systems which were memorized by their children it in koranic schools. All of that testified the superiority of Arabic language, as well as the Sanctity it acquired from the Holy Quran.  Thus, it was spoken by Arabs and non-Arabs. This caused it to jump from the Arabs' geographic  areas, to spread to the western countries and  to outperform each tongue. After a number of changes that took place for the Arab and Muslim countries, many of their people  fell back  from being adherent to it and declined towards the  changes and towards those who caused them. The result was that  some languages rose and  spread at the expense of Arabic language. For many reasons, those languages whose speakers managed to control large parts of people's lives prevented Arabic from keeping up with them. They were able to  practice geographic, political and scientific hegemony to the extent that Arabic language fell back from keeping up with them or to achieve what they reached to. In spite of that, Arabic is still considered one of the major universal languages; both its people and opponent alike have realized that the reason of its falling back is those   who take the reins of the nation. Indeed, there are protests here and there that demonstrate the validity of this, and confirm its ability to cover all sciences. This modest research is one of them.
