This paper aims to explain Arabic idioms in terms of textual and contextual aspects. This library research used the descriptive method, which is to describe the text objectively. The stagesĀ  in this research are data collection, data analysis, interpretation of data, and a conclusion that will be formulated from the focus of research. This research found that textual analysis in Arabic idioms can sometimes be linked to contextual meanings and some are not. That shows that the contextual meaning itself cannot completely ignore the textual, lexical or literal meaning. In fact, the connection between the meanings will make it easier to memorize or understand the contextual meaning of a particular idiom.
