I've got an old file that contained Quranic verses in a special Arabic font. Those verses were added using a special software. I'm missing that software, and now when I open the file, all the verses are shown as symbols. Downloading some fonts Arabic/Quranic fonts didn't help.

Here you can see the described problem.

I greatly appreciate any help.

EDIT1: I've added all Arabic language packs manually to MS Word, but the issue still remains.


  • Do you have the appropriate Language Pack[s] installed? Win 7 used to add them all automatically [unless you persuaded it not to], but Win 10 doesn't, you need to add them manually. – Tetsujin Jul 3 '18 at 11:00
  • @Tetsujin, I've added all Arabic language packs, but the problem still remains. – m.midho Jul 3 '18 at 11:29
