What are the cognates between Swahili and Spanish?


Being the language lovers that we are... A place to talk about, or write in languages other than Spanish and English.

What are the cognates between Swahili and Spanish?

This summer I'm taking Arabic classes at the local mosque, but I've recently purchased a few books for myself which happen to be materials for Swahili learning.

I'm aware the Arabic language had influence upon the Spanish Language as well as the Swahili language, but I was curious if there are any Arabic-derived cognates between the two languages. Are they significant, or are they rather weakly distributed between the two languages?

If anyone has a clue, I'd appreciate their knowledge.
