Arabic sentences/words

I have a few arabic words/sentences in a scan. I would like to have this in UTF, but ABBYY and online OCR's choke on it. I think because it looks handwritten.

Is there perhaps someone on this forum that can speak/write arabic and convert this to UTF text for me? If it would help to identify, I can give a rough translation of the words.

I would like to have it as text in my ePUB instead of an image, hence the question.

Note that Adobe-based readers cannot currently (or so it was last time I checked) render right-to-left text, so even if your source is fine, the final text will be wrong (and inverting the character sequence to make it look OK is a no-no, pleaso don't do that).

If you are no so much concerned about howi to looks now, but want to have a well-coded ePub that has the right content and will (hopefully) work fine in futere readers, then go on, that's the way.

I don't speak or read Arabic, but it can be fun decoding the printed text with a character table. If you need more help, you could try at http://forum.wordreference.com/ I've always found helpful and knowledgeable people there.

I know about the support issue with right to left, But that is not a problem in this case. A well formed book its much more important to me. Thanks for the tip.
