2.4 Online Arabic & Qur’an Studies

Arabic has been increasingly used and demanded in Indonesia and in Canada. Part of it is the fact that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. Another contributing factor is mass migration of Arabic speaking people from the Arab peninsula to the west including in the USA and Canada, due to natural disasters and multiple man-made wars. Arabic is an international language and has been used as one of the official languages of the United Nations since 1973. According to the 2016 Census there were 948,330 Canadians who claimed   Arab ancestry. According to the 2011 Census there were 661,750 Canadians who claimed full or partial ancestry from an Arabic-speaking country. The large majority of Canadians of Arab origin live in either Ontario or Quebec.

 

Because of the changes in demographics, there is an increased demand of Arabic in the world. The non-Arabs and other multicultural residences of Canada need the Arabic language to provide community services, trade, education, medical services, and other aspects of life.

Parents of Arab descendants seek to keep the language alive within their family amid daily domination of English and French the children and neighborhood are speaking.
