Keywords:Language, Arabic, Bahawalpur, Prose
Before and after the advent of Islam, the Arabs travelled to India for trade. With the establishment of trade relations between the Arabs and the people of India, the teaching and promotion of Arabic language and literature started up. The Indigenous people of the subcontinent worked hard to acquire religious learning’s and fine arts. With the passage of time, the centers for the education and training of Arabic language and literature were established all over the subcontinent. During the period of Mughals there was a large number of oriental scholars and linguistics in the subcontinent. Afterwards, the British Empire used all its resources to divert people from Arabic language and literature towards English language and culture despite that the trend to receive Islamic teachings and to learn Arabic language and literature kept increasing. After the partition of Subcontinent, Pakistan came into being. In Pakistan the scholars and linguists of Arabic wrote many books for the enhancement of Arabic language and literature and also for the promotion of religious teachings. There established prominent institutions, universities and Madaris for the promotion of oriental studies. The Ulma of State Bahawalpur contributed much for this great task. These Scholars composed numerous books and research articles for the revival and development of Arabic language and Literature. The Scholars wrote various books of Arabic prose, Tafseer, Hadith, Islamic Jurisprudence, logic, Philosophy, Rhetoric and Discourse. Certain Scholars interpreted and evaluated Arabic sermons, Fables, Short Stories and novels as well.
