The goal of this article is to show another function of legal theory which is very important, it is the methodology of this science that appeared in other sciences, especially the Arabic language, that means that scholars of the Arabic language were influenced by the methodology of legal theory in their research. We remarked this impact in of Ibn Jinniy’s magnum opus al-Kasai’s in which stated: “We have not seen any of the Basra and Kufa’s scholars showed the sources of Grammar Science as the scholars of legal theory did”. The tendency to write as the scholars of legal theory was not the intention of Ibn Jinni only, it had been the intention of Abu Bakr al-Sarraj in his book titled "al-Usul fi nahw" in which dedicated it for two things, the first is to elaborate the causes of grammar which had been considered by the Arab people, and to state the principles and rules in the Arabic language. So, what prompted the scholars of the Arabic language to adopt the methodology of scholars’ legal theory in writing? And in which places this methodology appear in the books’ languages? In attempting to give answers of these pivotal and central questions I will divide this article into two sections, the first will be about the methodology of Islamic legal theory as a methodological science that its method appeared in other specialties of knowledge. And the second will be about the methodological impact of Islamic legal theory in the research of language.
