Can you please be more specific.
Is your database encoding set to utf_unicode_ci?
This should allow you to have Arabic text.

Do you have phpMyAdmin? or can you run 'mysql' command?

Kindly ask the admin who installed your site to do that.
Good luck!

I'm sorry, didn't mean to be rude. But you really need to know at least the mysql command to know to how to do basic things.
Anyway, tell me, where are doing the installation? is it local or hosted online?
Since you have sql buddy, I guess you might be doing the installation locally.
So, if you open a terminal (command line) and type mysql then press enter are do you see something like mysql> prompt?
I guess the problem now is SQL buddy is setting the collation (locale) to utf_general_ci which is not usable (AFAIK) for Arabic.
