Arabic Dual

I've been wondering this for awhile but keep forgetting to ask my teacher. Is there a particular reason why Arabic has a dual? Like is there a historical significance to the dual?

Also do other languages have a dual in the same way? I think Hebrew has a dual for only certain nouns like eyes and ears?

Thank you!
