Language and intellect are both gifts of God. Due to these two characteristics, mankind is superior to all living beings on earth. Here the question arises, that which language was the first language of the world? We have to types of theories to solve these types of questions. According to the religious theory, God created the first man, Adam and he created his wife, Eve’’ from the right rib of Adam. As God created them with his Divine power, He also infused in them the talent to speak.
On other hand; the proponents of evolutionary theory one of the opinion that early humans copied the sounds of animals, birds and other phenomena of nature and formed their primitive language. There are some information in the Bible about the early language to the extent that people from Adam to Noah and their close descendants had one language. What kind of language was that? Bible is silent regarding this information. According to Islamic traditions, Adam's language was Arabic and Noah's language was Syriac. But according to modern Islamic researchers, Noah's language was Arooba, which is an old form of Arabic.
