In the Name of Allah most Gracious most Merciful

Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Arabic Language     The Arabic Language is extremely important, Allah has chosen it to reveal the Quran because of it’s extreme clarity and encompassing of meanings (and more) of which no other language has.  Allah says:

بِلِسَانٍ عَرَبِيٍّ مُبِينٍ 

In a clear Arabic language.

سورة الشعراء

Ahmad Bin Faris said in his book(PDF Page 19)

فلما خَصَّ جل ثناؤه  اللسانَ العربيَّ بالبيانِ، عُلِمَ أن سائر اللغات قاصرةٌ عنه، وواقعة دونه

And so When Allah specialized the Arabic Language with Bayan, then it is known that every other language is limited from it and inferior

 The Arabic Language is the Language and key to the Quran and Sunnah, it is part of the Deen and Aqeedah, and through speaking it it positively affects the brain, manners, and ones Deen.  The learning of Arabic is a Fard, but the Fard changes for the different parts of the Language.  As some parts are Fard for every single person to learn, while other parts are Fard on the Kifayah.

Ummar Ibnul Khattab said:

تعلَّموا العربيةَ؛ فإنها من دينِكم، وتعلَّموا الفرائضَ؛ فإنها من دينكم

Learn the Arabic Language; for it is of your Deen, and learn the obligations; for it is of your Deen

Source(Page 9)

With that, I will like to briefly speak about StackExchange.  StackExchange is a network of high quality expert Q&A sites on various subjects.  Each site is built and managed by the community, and the goal is to create a repository of high quality questions and answers.  Now every site starts from a proposal, and currently there is one that exists in attempt to build a StackExchange Q&A site for the Arabic Language.

Some Details About the Proposal

Link: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/62022/arabic-language

Description:

اقتراح إنشاء موقع أسئلة وأجوبة يضم المتعلمين، اللغويين، والخبراء بمجالات اللغة العربية ليناقشوا ما يتعلق بهذه اللغة.

Proposed Q&A site for non-native & native Arabic Language learners, linguists & experts to discuss finer points of the language.

Currently the proposal needs more followers who post their example questions and vote accordingly on the others, so that we can build a good high quality Q&A site for Arabic on this network, that can benefit those that come across it.

If you have any questions about the Arabic Language from the Islamic perspective, then please come ask it here.  If you have any question or want a discussion about the proposal then click the “Start Discussion” button here.  If you have a question about the Arabic Language itself or one of it’s sciences, please do not ask it on the Islam site but reserve it for when the Arabic proposal goes to beta, thank you.

سبحان رب العزة عما يصفون، و سلام على المرسلين و الحمد لله رب العالمين
