Is Arabic a modern language?

There are many forms of Arabic spoken in the Middle East, but Arabic as a written language does not vary at all from society to society: written Arabic is referred to as Classical Arabic and is not commonly spoken. In fact there is no written language for Arabic dialects, as they are only spoken and grammatically incorrect, these dialects are part of the Modern Standard Arabic languages. Classical Arabic has been a literary language and the liturgical language of Islam since its inception in the 7th century, and is no longer evolving or progressing in terms of invention of words, terminology or variation of grammar. The only reason Classical Arabic is not a dead language is because there is no proper way of writing the different Arabic dialects and because The Koran is written in Classical Arabic. So to answer your question: No, Arabic is not a modern language.
