- 1943, Tan Malaka, Madilog:
- Lebih kental susunannya, lebih pasti kediamannya dan lebih mendalam kepercayaannya, tetapi paling tiada dikenal didunia luar diantara 3 agama yang masuk ke Tiongkok itu, ialah agama Islam.
- The more acquainted the arrangement it has, the more certain the residence it has, and the deeper the belief it has. Yet, the least known in the outside world among the three religions that entered China, is the religion Islam.
- ^ Robert Blust; Stephen Trussel (2020-06-21), “Loan - v”, in Austronesian Comparative Dictionary, retrieved 2022-03-15: “Given its distribution only on Java, Bali and Lombok and in Malay, but not in the Batak languages or other languages of northern Sumatra, or in Borneo, this is most likely to be a loan from Javanese.”
