‘Abdullaah bin Zayd An-Numayri reports that Al-Hasan Al-Basri said:

They (the heretics) were destroyed by their inability in Arabic.”

Al-Bukhaari, At-Taareekh Al-Kabeer 5/99.

And al-Imaam Ash-Shaafi’i said:

People didn’t become ignorant and didn’t differ amongst themselves except because they left Arabic and leaned towards the language of Aristotle.”

Quoted by As-Suyuti in Sawn Al-Mantiq p15.

As-Suyuti said on p22 of the same book:

I have found that the Salaf before Ash-Shaafi’i indicate what he did: that the cause of heresy is ignorance of the Arabic language.”
