According to Muslims, the Quran is the main religious text of Islam which was verbally revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Peace. Be. Upon. Him.) through Jibril. It is said the holy book is the richest source of Islamic heritage. One of the significant parts of the Quran is its linguistic heritage. This paper strives to report the importance of Language in the Quran. A content-based analysis approach is used as the main tool of data collection and analysis. To achieve this goal, complete text of the Quran has been studied to extract related verses (ayahs). Then, a detailed explanation is given to show the significance of Language based on the Islamic religious text. The results of the related verses (ayahs) show that: 1. Islamic linguistic heritage is not limited to just one language despite the fact that the Quran is written in Arabic, 2. God has promised to save His heritage, 3. Various languages can be regarded as resources and motives which encourage Muslims to know each other better, 4. Languages are the singes of God.
