Outside the Middle East, Arabic is taught as a foreign language in Muslim minority countries. As such, it is certainly not a first or second or even a third language for children who have to learn it. The position is complicated further in these countries since often there is no Arabic-speaking community which use the language for communication, such as context poses many difficulities for teaching the subject.
The teaching of Arabic must create a love for the language so that the child can identify with the Ummah. The development of the basic skill of listening, speaking, reading and writing will ensure that the child will be able to communicate with fellow Muslims across the globe, and in this way contribute to unifying the Ummah.
In the senior grades, the learners gain access via the original language to the vast treasury of Arabic literature. The study of the language, therefore leads to a more comprehensive understanding of Islam. Additionally, the language also serves as an introduction to the Arabic world of economic, journalism, politics, literature, religion and education.# (from vision to action and now to realization)
