When I load a Custom Arabic font the font is loaded and usable for normal Latin Characters. But when I want to display Arabic letters the font isn't used and the default Geeza Pro font is used.

Be aware that some API do not support UTF8, see: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6201193/no-german-umlaute-in-cgbitmapcontext

If this does not solve your issue then please provide a self-contained test case that shows the problem.
