I'm not familiar with the Arabic alphabet, but would like to write the shahada in the two ways displayed below using pdflatex, for inclusion in a paper.

enter image description here

How can I do it? Is arabtex the way to go?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{arabtex}

\begin{document}

\setarab

\begin{arabtext}
% ...
\end{arabtext}

\end{document}

  • Why do you not use LuaLaTeX or XeLaTeX and write in unicode? Apr 5, 2013 at 12:20
  • @ClintEastwood For my paper I need certain tools that are only available to pdflatex, so I fear none of those engines is an option for me.
