In order to promote Arabic language academies, High Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah launched a charitable endowment on Tuesday.
At the Arabic Language Academy (ALA) in Sharjah, Sheikh Sultan was present for a celebration marking the publication of 19 new volumes of the Historical Corpus of the Arabic Language. Additionally present were representatives from 14 eminent Arabic language academies from 12 different nations.
The Historical Corpus of the Arabic Language now has 19 volumes, covering the four Arabic letters haa, khaa, dal, and thal in addition to the 17 volumes that already exist and cover the nine letters from hamza through thal.
The Corpus, a groundbreaking initiative to document the growth of the Arabic language over 17 centuries, today consists of 36 volumes, each of which was created and released by Al Qasimi Publications. The Sharjah Ruler’s efforts to assist and promote the flourishing of the Arabic language are translated into this extraordinary historical achievement.
The Historical Corpus is one of the crucial tools that countries should build on to promote the language, according to Sheikh Sultan, who praised the work of the representatives of the Arabic academies in creating it. He emphasized the value of language academies in safeguarding, preserving, and promoting Arabic and ensuring that it has its proper place in academic pursuits, research, education, and learning.
In order to increase the use of Arabic throughout the Arab world, Sheikh Sultan emphasised the significance of establishing unique centres run by their various academies.
