In addition, Arabic is the language of the Koran for all Muslims and the only form of speech permitted in prayer; Arabic is the religious language in Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Indonesia. This means that this artistic language is probably known to around a billion people.

All about the Arabic language: including learning, translating and interpreting
When to learn Standard Arabic?
The Arabic language is currently split into two parts:
the written and the spoken language. You can hardly find an Arab who speaks the written language. But all Arabs agree that one should only write in standard Arabic.
So in the Arabic region we find a language situation similar to that in German-speaking Switzerland: the dialect is spoken by the population as their mother tongue in everyday life, while the standard language is only learned at school and only used for formal situations and for writing.
To read the Koran, newspapers, books and to understand the news, you need to learn Standard Arabic. Most of the words in the dialects are standard Arabic words with small changes. Most of the time these are standard Arabic words without a case ending.
