Interesting Facts About Arabic

Arabic is not just a means of communication but a rich cultural heritage that continues to influence and inspire globally. It has both a classical form, known as Classical Arabic, which is the language of the Quran and early Islamic literature, and Modern Standard Arabic, used in contemporary formal writing and speech across the Arab world.

It has had a significant influence on many other languages, especially in vocabulary. Spanish, Portuguese, Persian, Urdu, and Turkish, among others, have borrowed from Arabic, particularly terms related to science, philosophy, and mathematics during the Islamic Golden Age.

Arabic is the liturgical language of Islam. The Quran, the holy book of Islam, is written in Classical Arabic, and reciting it with proper pronunciation (tajweed) is an art and spiritual practice.

Arabic Customs

Personal relationships and trust are paramount in the Arab business world. Take the time to get to know your business partners and invest in building strong, respectful relationships before moving into serious business discussions.

Arabic business culture is typically hierarchical. Showing respect to senior figures and those in positions of authority is important. Addressing individuals by their proper titles and in order of seniority demonstrates respect.

Dressing conservatively is very important. Men should wear suits and ties, and women should wear modest clothing, covering shoulders and knees at a minimum. However, this can be dependent on the specific norms of a particular region.

Negotiations in Arabic cultures can be prolonged. Patience and persistence are crucial. It’s also important to avoid hard selling, high-pressure tactics, or any form of confrontation, as these can be counterproductive. Indirect communication is common, with an emphasis on politeness and avoiding ‘no’ as an answer.

Business tip: Islam plays a central role in daily life in many Arabic-speaking countries. Be aware of prayer times, especially the Friday prayer, and the holy month of Ramadan, during which business hours may change, and working rhythms slow down as people fast during daylight hours.

It’s also recommended that you learn some simple Arabic greetings to establish a friendly connection.
