Ibn Ḥazm al-Andalusi [d. 1064 CE] – The Importance of Learning and Teaching Arabic

Ibn Ḥazm al-Andalusi – “Anyone who seeks knowledge of [Arabic] grammar and the language [in general] with the intention of implementing the Shariʿah, and to understand the Words of Allah ﷻ, and the words of His Prophet ﷺ, and [intends to] help others understand then for this person is a great reward and a lofty status, [a relative position] another is not permitted to lessen [in any case].”
