The following:


does not print the whole sentence,

\begin{Arabic}بالدم_فريق_السحمان\textunderscore مايروح\end{Arabic} 

also doesnt work,


does work, but adds an extra space after the underscore.

is there a better/proper way to do this, or remove the space?

    Welcome back! As in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/481448/…, could you provide a complete example to test things out? Preferably with a freely available font like Amiri. – Marijn Jul 1 at 21:13

    do not add code to comments (as you see, it doesn't work) add the test document to your question then use the {} button to mark it as a code block. Then all line endings are shown naturally and need no special markup – David Carlisle Jul 1 at 22:12

You can use \_ to include a literal underscore in Arabic just like for other text. For RTL text, this looks like _\:
