Perfect from every angle…

Look how beautifully imam Ibn kathir رحمة الله عليه explains the value and significance of the Arabic language

‎{ إِنَّآ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ }

‎وذلك لأن لغة العرب أفصح اللغات وأبينها، وأوسعها، وأكثرها تأدية للمعاني التي تقوم بالنفوس، فلهذا أنزل أشرف الكتب بأشرف اللغات، على أشرف الرسل، بسفارة أشرف الملائكة، وكان ذلك في أشرف بقاع الأرض، وابتدىء إنزاله في أشرف شهور السنة، وهو رمضان، فكمل من كل الوجوه

(Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an in order that you may understand.)

The reason why the arabic language was chosen is because it is the most eloquent, articulate, and encompassing of languages. And it is the most expressive of the meanings that can arise from oneself.

Therefore, the most honourable Book was revealed in the most honourable language to the most honorable Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم, delivered by the most honourable angel, in the most honourable land on earth, and its revelation started during the most honourable month of the year; Ramadan. Thus, the Qur’an is perfect in every aspect.
