  \markup { \override #'(font-name . "new font") "العربية" }

where "new font" is the name of the font to use.

To have a list of all available fonts on the operating system, type

  lilypond -dshow-available-fonts x

in a terminal.

But better is to read the "font" section of the notation reference manual.
NR 1.8.3 Fonts
