The emergence of many sciences coincided with the descent of the Holy Quran, such as history, medicine, chemistry, and the sciences of the Arabic language. The language of the Arabic language became more prevalent in Arab and Muslim countries because of the strength of its statement, the authenticity of its words and the abundance of its meanings.
