kuomba is used as well for praying even though it can be used other ways

I think its more used in order to ask for something.

Kusali's English Wiktionary page doesn't mention its etymology, but I think that it probably comes from Arabic صَلَّى (ṣallā, "to pray"), which is related to مُصَلًّى (muṣallan, "musalla, a place of prayer") and to صَلَاة (ṣalāh, "prayer, salat").
