Language has an important role as an element of civilization. Similarly Jawi language. This paper seeks to prove that Jawi Language is a hybrid language born from the clash between Arabic and Malay in the archipelago or Southeast Asia. Using the sociolinguistic point of view this article also shows that Jawi Language has contributed significantly to the formation of civilizations in the Malay and Indonesian Malay world. Jawi language is apparently used not only as the language of instruction in daily interactions, but also as a language of science, language, culture, diplomatic language, and even the language of unity among Malay nations in the Malayonesia region.
