Arabic

Arabic is the official language of many Muslim countries. Muslims believe that Arabic is the language of Allah.

The majority of Muslims in the world do not speak Arabic as their first language. But it is customary for all Muslims to say their daily prayers in Arabic, even if they do not understand the language well.

Unlike English, Arabic is written from left to right. Here is how to pronounce some words and phrases in Arabic. (Pronunciations are approximate.)
