    ABAP is an SQL based language but it is enhanced with Object Oriented programming. It is also its own SQL syntax its called OpenSQL and whole ABAP connected to the database with his own developed database interface. This interface translates the OpenSQL syntax to Native SQL.

    You can also use Native SQL in ABAP with special keywords. It contains query language because it is SQL based as I mentioned earlier and yes it is a backend programming language because it is running on servers not on the frontend.

    You can read further information about ABAP programming here:
