Could be an Arabic loanword in Malay. They are Muslims after all and influenced by Arabs historically. Father in Arabic also contains Ab.

Abo in Malaysian is abah
"Waa" in Japanese also happens to translate in English to "is" . Cool how languages around the world have similar words for the same meaning.
