Language is very important for humans. Each and every one of us must know how to speak at least one language in order for communication to happen. Each country has its own native language for its citizen to understand each other. However, if you want to learn a second language, you are free to do so. It will benefit you in many ways as well. Today, we are going to talk about a second language you could learn which is Arabic.

5 Reasons Why You Should Learn Arabic As Your Next Language
Greetings from sunny Cairo.
I’ve been moving around the world on and off for about 12 years now, immersing myself in new cultures and learning different languages.
It’s something I’ve always been really passionate about doing.
But you know after over a decade of travelling the world and living in some pretty exotic places through new languages, I’ve always had one place and one language nearest and dearest to my heart.
No matter where I am in the world or what language I’m currently learning, I always feel something powerful inside me pulling me back here to Egypt and the Arabic language – my first love. Read more here.
As enumerated above, the five reasons are: the Arabic alphabet is really simple to learn, Arab people are some of the easiest people in the world to meet and practice the language with, Arabic has really easy grammar compared to a lot of languages, it’s one of the most relevant and necessary languages today, and lastly there are lots of dialects to choose from – each one as rewarding as the next.
Now, Ultimate Arabic will tell us more about why we should learn Arabic.
Why should you learn Arabic?
When something’s as important as Arabic, you can bet that the discussions about the reasons to learn it and why it’s so important will abound as they have through the centuries right up until our time. I’m going to give my own take. It is edgy, it is opinionated, but don’t let that stop you from going through it. Keep in mind that when I say “Arabic”, I mean the pure Arabic that was present during final era of revelation, not what is known as “dialects”.
Arabic is the language of Islam
This is something we really need to wrap our heads around to understand how important Arabic is. All the primary sources are in Arabic. All our rituals use them. The understanding of many Islamic concepts go back to what the words originally mean in Arabic. It is a symbol of Islam, so much, that for much of history, the Muslims were simply called “the Arabs”, because the world closely related Arabic and Islam together (i.e. that the Muslims are an Arabic-speaking nation).

As mentioned earlier, Muslims speak Arabic. Since the world is made up of a large number of our Muslim brother and sisters, then it would actually be nice to learn about their language because in this way, we are going to know more about them as well. Next up, FATMAS is going to give us 10 more reasons to learn Arabic.
