I am Amira Elzikrd Founder and Manger of Fayza LTD. Fayza is a newly established growing centre for Arabic Language which is interested in introducing Arabic Language. Arabic Language constitute the background and conscious of a big sector of our world, they do not involve the Arabs and Muslims solely.
Arabic is the 5th most commonly spoken native language in the world. It is also the official language of 22 countries that form the Arab League. In those countries, between 300 million and 400 million people use Arabic as their first language. Therefore, it is one of the six official languages of the UN. Other than the United Nations, Arabic is also an official language of the African Union, The Arab League and The Organization of Islamic Conference. Accordingly, there is a high demand for learning Arabic to be used in the fields of business, journalism, media, travelling, finance and banking, translation and interpreting and many others.
On the other hand, Muslims constitute the world’s second largest religious group. But, almost only twenty percent of Muslims are Arab. This opens the door for another high demand for learning Arabic by the non-Arab Muslims who are interested in learning Arabic to be able to understand Quran, their most sacred book, which was revealed in Arabic.
Anyone who is interested in the Arabic Language is welcome here. Learning each other’s Languages and cultures is the only way for a better and more civilized world.
