The Arabic language leads to Islamic Civilization in the remote corner of the word. This civilization manifested itself in different science like Chemistry, Medicine, Engineering and Philosophy. These sciences are based on Technical system which was not present in the Arabic Language before the age of Arabicization and translation.

Arabic language in derivative in nature.

Then is a sign for every consonant and vowed in the Phonelic system of Arabic. There are consonants of Zataqah (Eloquence) in quadrilateral, quingue literal, and sex partite letters. When there is no letter fo Zataqah (Al-Fa, Al-RA, Al-Mim, Al-Noon, Al-LAM, Al-BA) in a Wad it is decemed to be non Arabic in the opinion Khalil b Ahmad Al-Farabidn we find a discussion about Al-Muarrab, Al-Dakhil, lad Al-MKurallad‚€Ě (Post classical) from the very beginning.

Talib (Arebicization) means to transfer a word from non-Arabic language to Arabic after some changes which make it adaptable to Arabic Weights and measures. So the discussion deals with the way of its transfer.

Al-Dakhil means to insert a word of foreign language into without any change. The discussion deals with it separately from Muauab‚€™ This is an important topic which plays its pivotal part in developing the vocabulary of a language. Arabic language is considered to be fertile language which absorbs easily. Words from other languages. That is why most of the scholars consider the phenomenon of Arabicization to be essential making the language reach and contemporary. So that it may keep pace with the advancement of knowledge.

I have analysed this topic in accordance with the standards of Arabicization and discussed its step by step in successive periods b giving the opinions of scholars about it. After giving individual opinions, I have turned towards linguistic Academies and explored the standards and rulers for Arabicization as laid down by scholars.

I have discussed the rules starting from Khalil, Sibwaih, Ibn Duraid, Ferozabadi and coding with Al-Khalfagi. I have tried to apply these rules to some Arabicized a Foreign words.

Arabic language was influenced by the languages of nations either bordering Arabic Peninsula or living away from it like, Gruce, Posia and India in the periods before the advent of Islam, earlier Islamic periods and period of Abbasids i.e. period of Academic renaissance, I have also discussed participation of the sub continent in the phenomenon of Arabicization foreign words.

That is why I have made reference to a book, ‚€œLaff Al-Qimat ‚€˜Al-Tashih MA Istamlatho Al-Ammatu Min Al-Muarrab, Waal Dakhil Wal Al-Muwallad, Wal Aghlat by Abi Al-Tib, Siddiq Ban Hasan Al-Qinnoji. The Persian and Urdu language contributed much vocabulary towards the Arabic language.

I have also taken up the problemof Arabicized and foreign words in the Holy Quran some confirm it, whereas other reports it.

In my dissertation I have relied on the following sources:
