Arabic Diary and Calendar Tokens

Scroll Prev Up Next More

There are no tokens specific to the Arabic language.


Usually, when setting-up diaries that use Arabic, you will use 2 types of tokens:


Normal daily, weekly and monthly tokens, whose language tag makes them relate to Arabic as one of the languages selected in the current script.

Tokens relating to dates of the Islamic calendar (or prayer times).


If you use Unicode-enabled Arabic fonts, then you can set your tokens the same way as you would set them up to display English, for example.


Arabic Name of Western Months


In addition to most tokens which can be displayed in Arabic, just as in any other language, there is a specific token




which can be used to display the Arabic name of the current Gregorian month, in any language. The use of this token is similar to that of the Islamic Month tokens.
