Swahili is a language comprised of African and Arabic languages.
It does indeed have some Persian in it too, but mostly Arabic.
The root of the name comes from the Arabic word Sawahil meaning
shores or sea shores. It was called Swahili because of the fact
that most of the speakers of this new language lived on the eastern
shores of Africa like Tanzania before spreading to almost all of
Africa. This language is the second most spoken language in all
of Africa after English. We Iranians might call it bandari, but
I do not believe that it's 100% accurate.
