Indonesia has the biggest muslim population, so arabic/islam words has assimilated into Indonesian. Happens too in arabic speaking countries, or your muslim friends shouting jesus christ in disbelief, simply because the word has assimilated into their daily lives (not necessarily yours tho)

Also, astaghfirullah is in fact an entry in kamus besar bahasa indonesia / great dictionary of indonesian language
