    Default Ancient Arabic written in different scripts by Ahmad al-Jallad

    The history of the Arabic language that was written down in many ancient scripts other than Arabic:

    Arabic in Didanite script - 5th century BCE:
    "In the northern Ḥigāz, Arabic was occasionally written in the Dadanitic alphabet. There are only a couple of Arabic texts in this script, probably ad hoc attempts at writing the language."


    Arabic in modified Greek alphabet:
    "And very rarely, speakers of Arabic wrote their language in Greek letters. If this tradition caught on, Arabic could have developed a scripted based on a modified form of the Greek alphabet, comparable to Coptic."


    Arabic in Hismaic and Safaitic scripts:
    "Arabic was often written in the Hismaic script, like this inscription from Madaba (right). By the end of the 1st millennium BCE, the Safaitic script was used from the Ḥawrān to northern Saudi Arabia to express dialects of Old Arabic (left)"



    "Are there religious texts in Arabic before Islam? Yes! In 2015, I deciphered an ancient poem, in a form of the Safaitic script, recounting the cosmic battle between Mōt, the god of death, and Baʿal, the storm god, echoing the ancient Canaanite Baal Cycle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baal_Cycle "




    Pre-Islamic Arab pilgrimage to their ancient Semitic gods.

    "Let’s begin with Safaitic (2st BCE (maybe earlier) until at least the 3rd c. CE). The inscription B.Renv.a 1 is dated sanata baṭala ḥagg seʿīʿ ‘the year the pilgrimage to Seʿīʿ failed’. Seʿīʿ is a town in s. Syria (https:///2OKAX1y ). Why a pilgrimage to this place?"


    "The author of MA 1 asks from something more concrete: ṭahora wa ḏabaḥa le-roḍay wa-ġannama nāqata ‘he purified himself and made an animal sacrifice to Roḍay (a god) so may he grant (him) a she-camel’."

    This is just a sample of the ancient Arabs of their written language and culture. Sad what Islam had done to us(Arab ex-Muslim speaks against the loss of her heritage):

    I know, lol. Had the tradition lived on, we could have been writing Greek like Copts do today for their language. I like the Arabic script though.

    In southern Arabia in the ancient kingdom of Saba (actual Southern Arabia, Yemen, and coastal Ethiopia), they developed a different kind of script, from Sabaean script also derived the Ethiopic script.
