astagfirullah - "I beg Allah's (your) forgiveness"

Only speak by a moslem. this is a self speak .. it is not Indonesian.

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

I am Indonesian. Sure it has assimilated in some way, but Duolingo usually made sure such references to Christianity is faded out in Western language lessons. Why the promotion of Islam here then?

Not quite correct - Forgive me God would be much more correct.

That's not only Indonesian word. Arabic has it, too.

Should "Allah have mercy" be accepted? I would assume so since it's a Muslim expression and Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world.
