Template intended to force following fonts if installed:

These fonts contain all Arabic character defined in Arabic Unicode for text in the various languages that use the Arabic script, but not all the redundant glyphs used in stylizing.

If the previous fonts are not installed, other fallback fonts would display:

  • Arabic Transparent, Arial (essentially look the same and lack a few characters)
  • Microsoft Sans Serif (lacks a few characters and lacks a bold weight)
  • Calibri (lacks a few characters and lacks a normal weight)
  • Sakkal Majalla
  • Microsoft Uighur (lacks a few characters and lacks a bold weight)
  • Arabic Typesetting (lacks a bold weight)



Use {{Arabic-international|Your text}}, or to be more specific use {{Arabic-international|lang code|Your text}}:

For entire rtl paragraphs use
