The six days from Senin (Monday) to Jumat (Friday) in Indonesian are correspondingly derived from the five numbers: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 in Arabic. Sabtu (Saturday) is also derived from the Arabic word as-sabt, though this is originally a loanword from the Hebrew word sabat which means 'to end, to rest'. The word Minggu (Sunday), was derived from the Portuguese word Domingo.
