 > Why you do not perform this by yourself ?

 I don't read Arabic, I don't know what fonts look good or look bad. My
 computer has different fonts than yours, so even if I try the result will
 be different.

 I tried it in Tor Browser and the font was [[comment:2|Noto Naskh
 Arabic]], but you already said that one does not look good.

 > Any how, I did this using regular Firefox with default setting (not set
 on "Arial" by default, & allow sites to select it's owen fonts. Take
 result: "Arial" (or "Arial Bold" or "Arial italic") are the fonts for all
 contents that I tested. Only one exception is head of site which is both
 "George bold" + "Time new Roman bold".

 Do you have access to a Linux computer where the fonts look good? If so,
 what fonts are they? Those are more likely to be fonts that we can use.

 Arial, Georgia, and Times New Roman are Microsoft fonts that we wouldn't
 be able to include.
