Maybe most of you guys not so aware that Malay people had adapted arabic characters and used it for writing purposes before modern nowadays character being used and practiced.

"The Jawi alphabet has existed for many centuries in the Malay world. Its development is linked with the arrival of Islam. It consists of mostly Arabic characters along with some extra characters unique to Jawi."

I had found a table from wikipidea: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jawi  which shows Jawi alphabet that being used for writing in Malay language. Would like to share with all of you...
