Imam Shafa’ee (R) said:

“ما فسد النَّاس إلا لما تركوا لسان العرب، واتبعوا لسان أرسطو “

“People did not become ignorant nor differed except after their abandonment of the Arabic language and their inclination to the language of Aristotle!”

[Sharh Aqeedah al-Tahawiyyah 1/100; quoted by Imam Dhahabi in as-Siyar A’lam al-Nubala 10/74 and al-Suyuti in Sawn al-Mantiq p.15.]
