Abstract

Linguists and Muslim jurists have depended heavily on the Arabic Language in their researches about Islamic legislation. The Arabic language is the true method of understanding the words of Holy Quran which is the first reference in deriving Islamic Commandments.  Without learning and understanding the Arabic Language it is impossible to get knowledge of Islamic legislation, therefore, the Muslim has started to teach and learn the Arabic Language. The jurists have made it the basic condition to derive the Islamic Commandments for interpretation. The Companions of Holy Prophet (PBUH) and their followers have struggled for the interpretation of Holy Quran as linguistic explanation. This research will present the importance of Arabic Language in the light of Quran, Sunnah and conduct of Companions and Imams. In this research the importance and necessity of Arabic Language has been included according to the opinion of jurists and imams for interpreters and Muftis. This study will strengthen the relationship between Arabic Language and Islamic Commandments and it will increase the passion to learn the Arabic Language.
