I tried this:

  \relative c' {
    c4^\markup { \override #'(font-name . "KacstOffice")
                 "العربية" }
      d e f |
    g^\markup { "english" }
      f e d |

and get the attached image as output, which seems to be correct
(please correct me if I'm wrong).  This is on a GNU/Linux box.

Is it possible that the arabic shaper of Pango is missing in the
Windows LilyPond bundle?  I'm talking about the `pango-arabic-fc' and
`pango-arabic-lang' modules.
