This work emphasizes the relationship between the English language and Islam and its significance in contemporary times. It focussed on the important role of the English language as a conveyor of knowledge about Islam to the international community and on the diverse ways in which Western and global cultures, often accessible in English, would no doubt continue to connect with the Muslim world. The English language has been one of the most hospitable languages in the world in accepting foreign loanwords and one of the languages that contributed to English is the Arabic language as a donor of words to other languages. Directly borrowed arabisms which are connected with Islam are pronounced the same in Arabic and English, it is zero transphonemisation or partial - compromise tranphonemisation. They form their orthography on the basis of the pronunciation of the model or an arabism follows the orthography of the model without any change.
