Tim Macintosh Smith explains the paradox that is Arab nationalism identity and Islam Arab unity was a short lived thing for a people who are born individualists Arab historians have always pointed out settled communities will be subject to the predatory actions of nomads The Prophet Mohammed was the first and only one to unify the Arab Nation He was the first one to commit the language to a written form in the Koran But as Tin Macintosh Smith says Classical Arabic has never been the Lingua Franca of any Arab State Pointing out even a small country Bahrain has two incompatible Arabic dialects The unifying benefits of classical Arabic have never been fully realised Islam and the Prophet Mohammed reconciled the laws governing religious and civil duties A respect for both religious and civil duties are fundamental to Islamic beliefs Unfortunately we are human and cannot live up to the duties imposed on us by our religious beliefs Shame on usA couple of points after time to reflect The information on the Pre Islamic Arab people is difficult to find and even difficult to verify The Author states the history was passed down verbally With only passing references made about them by other civilisations He then claims the Koran was the first book written in the Arabic language How would this be possible with no written script development over a considerable period of time
