Departmental History

Department Of Arabic is one of the oldest department of Govt.Degree College for Women, Baramulla. Arabic is the official language of over 20 countries and there are well over 300 million native speakers of the language. These speakers are largely concentrated in the Middle East, but there are minority groups of native speakers throughout the world.It is also an official language of the United Nations, the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Conference, and the African Union.
Our department focuses on teaching Arabic in its wider, more authentic contexts and in the principles of discourse and meaning. Today, this department plays a leading role in teaching Arabic beyond grammatical analysis to a wider scope of teaching Arabic in the realms of both linguistic and cultural proficiency.
The language is very important in Islam because Muslims believe that Allah used it to talk to Muhammad through the Archangel Gabril (Jibril), giving him the Quran in Arabic. Many Arabic speakers are Muslims, but not all are.
Arabic speakers are Muslims, but not all are. 90 percent of the world’s Muslims do not speak Arabic as their native language, yet in daily prayer, when reading the Quran, or even in simple conversations with each other, Arabic readily rolls off any Muslim’s tongue. The pronunciation may be broken or heavily accented, but most Muslims make the attempt to speak and understand some Arabic.
