SANTIFICATION OF THE ARABIC LANGUAGE
One of the reasons of the spread of illiteracy among the greater part of the Muslim population was the prohibition of translating the Quran into foreign languages. This made religion the exclusivity of a minority. The public was taught books on Islamic catechism rather than the Quran. On the other hand, deserters from the established sects were subjected to severe punishments and in this way the distorted and Arabized Islam was protected. This was the same mentality that reigned during the Middles Ages in Europe when the translation of the Gospels into any language other than the Latin was banned. Although nowhere in the Quran is it said that prayers should be performed in Arabic, the sectarian concepts of the Sunnis made it obligatory preventing people from using their vernacular in their prayers. Their brains were washed, saying that Arabic was the language of paradise and was holy, and this was successful in imposing the Arabic civilization on other nations. The Quran states that every prophet (whether his name is mentioned in the Quran or not) addressed his nation in his vernacular. None of these languages had any sanctity among them. The fact that Arabic is the language spoken and written in paradise is nowhere mentioned in the Quran but is an invention based on fabricated hadiths.
