words in the German language have their origin in the Arabic language
Many words in the German language have their origin in the Arabic language, especially in fields like mathematics, science, and technology. This is because during the medieval period, Arab scholars translated and preserved Greek and Roman works, and the knowledge was eventually translated into German through trade and cultural exchange.
Here are some examples of German words with Arabic origin:
Algebra (from الجبر al-jabr)Alcohol (from الكحول al-kuḥl)Zero (from صفر ṣifr)Kaffee (from قهوة qahwah)Zucker (from السكر sukkar)Admiral (from الأمير البحري amir al-bahr)Lampion (from العبادية اللون al-‘ibādiyyah al-lawn)Tarock (from الطارق al-tāriq)Ratsel (from الغزل al-ghazal)Bazaar (from البازار bāzār)
Note that the Arabic words have been transcribed in German spelling and some are changed a bit to fit German pronunciation.
