So verily the Arabic language is from the religion so knowing it is Fard Waajib

Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahu'Llah) said:
"So verily the Arabic language is from the religion so knowing it is Fard Waajib for indeed understanding the Book and the Sunnah is Waajib and they are not understood except by understanding the arabic language and that which is needed to fulfill an obligation is itself an obligation. So you have from it that which is waajib upon each individual and you have that which is waajib alal kifaayah."
