Jawi alphabet

Jawi (Jawi: جاوي‎ JāwīPatani:JawiAcehneseJawoë) is an Arabic alphabet for writing the Malay languageAcehneseBanjarese,MinangkabauTausug and several other languages in Southeast Asia.
Jawi is one of the two official scripts in Brunei, and is used as an alternate script in Malaysia. Usage wise, it was the standard script for the Malay language but has since been replaced by a Latin alphabet called Rumi, and Jawi has since been relegated to a script used for religious and cultural purposes. Day-to-day usage of Jawi is maintained in more conservative Malay-populated areas such as Patani in Thailand andKelantan in Malaysia and used by some of the locals of the Muslim population regions of the southern Philippines.[1]
