In fact it comes from the Swahili, but we know that Kiswahili uses quite a few expression from the Arabic language.
Before the European colonisation of Eastern Africa and the subsequent use of Latin alphabet, Kiswhahili was written in Arabic script as Zanzibar was a colony of the Sultanate of Oman.
