Arabic has been a literary language since at least the 6th century, and is the liturgical language of Islam.
Since the written Arabic of today differs substantially from the written Arabic of the Qur'anic era, it has become customary in western scholarship to refer to the language of the Qur'an as Classical Arabic and the modern language of the media and of formal speeches as Modern Standard Arabic.
While Arabic is strongly associated with Islam (and is the language of salah), it is also spoken by Arab Christians, Oriental Jews, and indeed Iraqi Mandaeans; and, of course, the vast majority of the world's Muslims do not actually speak it; they only know some fixed phrases of Arabic, as used in Islamic prayer.

Al-Andalus is the Arabic name given the Iberian Peninsula by its Muslim conquerors; it refers to both the Caliphate proper and the general period of Muslim rule (711–1492).
As they were written in Arabic alphabet, the vowels had to be reconstructed.
This Romance variety had a significant impact in the formation of Portuguese, Spanish and Catalan (especially the Valencian variety), which explains why these languages have so many words of Andalusi Arabic origin (Mozarabic was, understandably, quite influenced by Arabic and vice versa).

In Islam and Arabic cultures calligraphy is respected as one of the greatest arts and a symbol of unity and beauty.

Arabic terms (from the roots 'adala and wazana) conveying the meaning of "correcting the land," the surveying procedure necessary to prepare a parcel for irrigation, have the sense of the Latin expression librare terram (to balance or equalize the land) and must therefore represent a procedure of Roman agriculture common throughout the Empire.
The presence of the Latinism in Andalusi Arabic is probably indicative of the survival of simple horizontal mills.
In addition, Andalusi engineers used river dams to increase the efficiency of horizontal or undershot vertical mills, as at Córboba, where four mills were emplaced on the downstream zig-zags of the dam across the Guadalquivir.

He is the author of several books on Semitic and Arabic linguistics, most particularly Andalusi Arabic and linguistic aspects of Andalusi stanzaic poetry.
A detailed scientific description of the Andalusi Arabic dialect bundle did not exist until recent times, although the correct understanding of some of its texts bears heavily on many momentous conclusions drawn by contemporary scholars about the extent and depth of cultural interaction between the Arabs and the West.
This volume will be useful to students of Arabic dialectology and also to those concerned with any kind of literature produced in Al-Andalus, as well as to Romance scholars who may find the solution to many an etymological riddle here.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Andalusian Arabic
Andalusian Arabic (also known as Andalusi Arabic and Spanish Arabic) was a dialect of the Arabic language spoken in Al-Andalus, the regions of the Iberian Peninsula (modern Spain and Portugal) under Muslim rule.
Andalusian Arabic appears to have spread rapidly and been the general oral use in most parts of Al-Andalus between the 9th and 15th centuries.
Andalusian Arabic belongs to Early Western Neo-Arabic, which does not allow for any separation between Bedouin, urban, or rural dialects, nor does it show any detectable difference between communal dialects, such as Muslim, Christian and Jewish.

Literary Arabic, al-luġatu-l-ʿarabīyatu-l-fuṣḥā (Literally: the pure Arabic language—اللغة العربية الفصحى) refers both to the language of present-day media across North Africa and the Middle East (from Morocco to Iraq) and to the language of the Qur'an.
Arabs often use the term Fuṣḥa to refer to any of the written dialects of Arabic.
In fact, however, the written Arabic of today differs substantially from the written Arabic of the Qur'an, and as a result it has become customary to refer to the language of the Qur'an as Classical Arabic and the modern language of the media and of formal speeches as is Modern Standard Arabic.
