Hi Musa,

Yes I can use ConTeXt and XeTeX to write Arabic (actually Persian, 
but there is no difference...), thanks to the efforts of Jonathan 
Kew, Adam Lindsay and Hans Hagen.
But I have some problems using certain fonts (namely kamran) because 
in long documents the spacing of letters and words is not correct and 
I don't know how to fix it.
If you need any help I can give, do not hesitate to ask me.

Best regards: OK
