Dr. Sh. Inayatullah, Foreword by Sir Hamilton Gibb
The learned author in the Preface says: “The average educated man has a hazy notion that Arabic is important as the scriptural language of the Muslims; but beyond this he seems to know little about it. But Arabic, though it started on its worldwide career as the language of uncouth Bedouins, grew into the vehicle of the brilliant Islamic civilisation; and that whereas it is primarily important as the religious language of the Muslims, it has in the course of time developed many other aspects of great significance which entitle it to our serious study”.
