I am writing my Ph.D. thesis with LaTeX. As my thesis requires typesetting Arabic text, I was very glad to learn that LuaLaTeX can easily handle that. The questions and knowledge with regard to LaTeX I am primarily interested in surround:

  • LuaLaTeX
  • ledmac/ledpar
  • Biblatex
  • csquotes

I am using the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I am working in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic
  • Greek

Thanks. That's good to know! Any ideas as to why there is a default maxlevel=2 at all? Shouldn't that be up to the sanity of the author?

comment Arabic Vowels not appearing
You might add اللهِ as a third line to your example because this is -- I think -- what the Noor wants (if I understood him correctly).

by the way: what do you mean by "When i'm writing with the vowels, it is becomming like الله"? -- isn't الله what you want?

Which font are you using? As far as I know this depends a lot on the font which is supposed to render the correct ligature "itself" once you've simply typed ʾalif+lām+lām+hāʾ without any vowels or additional signs: ا + ل + ل + ه = الله. You could also try to use the single Unicode character FDF2 which, however, is not recommended nowadays.
