Since years, Arabic fonts used in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for elementary - preparatory school's level are used locally in Arab countries.
However, Dr. Lazrak and his team (UCAM, Morocco) presented some interesting reviews for different used systems through the Arab World and, I think, they applied it to LaTex.
Currently, with STIX fonts arriving to good maturity, I think it is time to work on this project and we, @ Aratypo, welcome any person who would like to share with us thoughts and efforts in order to realize this font.
Thanking you in advance.

The attached sampler is not for Latin, or any other language, except that of Nature.
I designed it to illustrate my physics theory. Recently it was used it to good advantage to illustrate my essay "Is Reality Digital Or Analog? Physics Is Undecided - A Beautiful Universe Theory Answers" for a contest. Please feel free to download the pdf, rate and give your opinions about it on the contest website here.
Below is a typical illustration from the paper.
The full original 2005 paper "Beautiful Universe" can be downloaded from
here; the first sections of both papers are not too technical and can be understood by the layperson. The rest I myself just barely understand!
