Sorry, I'm not sure I understand you.  If the setting of composition
rules for Arabic is not the culprit, then what is?  AFAIK, there are
no rules that guide Emacs's shaping except what's in
composition-function-table.  Beyond that, the only other factor is the
font backend and how it shapes glyphs given the chunks of text Emacs
presents to it.

Thanks, I will look into these.
