fahyph[1] package exists on CTAN for Persian unicode hyphenation pattern.
Could you please activate it for unicode TeX engines (XeTeX and LuaTeX).

Note 1: At the moment it only breaks words between ZWNJ but I will upload
another update to CTAN by the end of this year containing full hyphenation
patterns for Persian.

Note 2: Unlike Arabic, hyphenation is allowed in Persian and has been in
use for a long time. In Persian typography both hyphenation and Keshide
(stretching words) are done. For an example of hyphenation in Persian
typography, please see the attached image.
