  Why did Qur'an was revealed in Arabic Language

 The answer is because the Prophet (peace be upon him) to whom the Qur'an was sent was an Arab. Allah says:

{وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا بِلِسَانِ قَوْمِهِ...}.

{ And We did not send any messenger except [speaking] in the language of his people…}. (Ibraheem:4).

As for why Allah singled out the Arabs to send down the Qur'an with their tongue, with the fact that it is for all people.

It is regarded as esteem for them and honor for their tongue, and their characteristics are many and well known.

The Arabic language has persistence components which make it to be the most eternal Semitic language. Therefore, it is appropriate to send down the remaining seal book by it.

The Arabic language is the widest of the Semitic languages. It is the only one that can accommodate many of the Qur'anic meanings, while others cannot accommodate many of its meaning. So, It is appropriate to send down the Qur'an that can accommodate all the requirements of all people with their variety of life.

The Arabic language is the one that has remained untouched without confusion and disorder, because the Arabs used to sanctify and preserve it. They used to be very careful with it from all what may stain its serenity. Perhaps Allah has isolated them in one part of the earth in the desert away from what they may call it civilization and city, so that who is not an Arab may not tempt to stay with them. and by that their language will be spoil.

Thereafter, Allah shows them up to the world after the safety valve has sent with their language, which the Holy Qur'an. So, the language grows up, and develops plainly and purely sound for its children from all the defects that may be developed by other languages.

The Arabic  language in terms of its characteristics is the most fertile, expressive, and honored languages.

For these reasons and others, the Holy Qur'an was send down with their language; to challenge their rhetoric, and to be the Knight of the arena of their sacred land in order to achieve the miracle which has not happen before, except in the Qur'ans' words that the Arabs failed to oppose it with their high rank in the language. So that, they may hasten to believe in it.

Allah knows best.
