With the advent of Islam the Arabic Language started to improve and develop thanks to the Glorious Quran. People’s life began to change from bedouinism to urbanism. This included poets who neglected the various Arabic dialects and used the Quraish dialect: the language of the Glorious Quran. The public taste improved too, thus ignoring the strange austere bedouin words and embracing many foreign words due to the cultural contact between Arabs and foreign nations.Ancient critics like Ibn Sallam, Al-Jurjani, Ibn Qutayba, Ibn Rashiq and Hazim Al-Qartajanni (Qartaji?) were aware of this change in their writings as Arabic adopted new words related to Islamic terminology as well as lexes of philosophy, art and science. The use of the bedouin dialect, consequently disappeared from Arbic poetry and was restricted to the description of the desert and its animals.
