I'm using

 \item blah blah blah

and I'm using Arabic language for my paper. but, the enumerate does not put "dots" after the characters, it shows:

آ blah blah blah

instead of

آ. blah blah blah

so, How can I force it to use "dots" after the beginning characters?

    please always post complete examples. There should be no {...} around \item also you seem to be using (but do not say) enumitem package syntax. You can add . or any other characters to the label after \alph* Aug 24, 2021 at 13:38
