While this may hurt your delicate female sensibilities I feel I have to tell you that Arabic is not common in Brunei, I have never heard anybody speak Arabic, nobody writes in Arabic, Arabic is not in common use in Brunei.
Malay is the official language of Brunei (English is popular) ... Not Arabic.
If you want to sell goats in Brunei you will have to do so in Malay or English because if you use Arabic the majority will not understand what you are selling and will likely chase you and your goats out of town for fear you are a pontianak.
(Unless you are selling your goats to an إمام then you *should* be Ok as they will definitely have a good grasp of Arabic)
