  1. I think it’s a Moslem text, probably in Arabic or an Arabic-influenced language.

  2. Agreed. It’s full of direct borrowings of Islamic liturgical sayings from Arabic, but the language itself is not closely related to Arabic, I don’t think. It could be in a different branch of Afro-Asiatic (e.g. Afar, Tigrinya, Hausa), or from another family altogether. My hunch is that it’s in Africa though.

    Am I on the right track?
