The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared 18 December the World Arabic Language Day to celebrate Arabic language, the date on which Arabic became the sixth official language of the United Nations in 1973. Celebrating Arabic language every year is meant to safeguard its rich cultural heritage and promote the cultural diversity.
The World Arabic Language Day (WALD) is commemorated to highlight the catalytic role of Arabic in the European renaissance and the industrial revolution. Arabic promoted the dissemination of Greek and Roman sciences and philosophies to Renaissance Europe. Arab and Muslim scientists had translated the sciences, thoughts, philosophy, civilization, arts and literature of Greeks and Romans into Arabic. The Islamic world then developed many of these texts and made certain advances in scientific fields. They were in turn translated into Latin by scholars during the middle ages and transmitted to the West.
