With that, when you install a new version of Emacs, that
file will be overwritten.  If you want to avoid that, one
way is to define only additional rules in your .emacs as

(quail-use-package "arabic" "quail/arabic")
 ("1" ?١)

By the way, if your request is a common one, it is better
that we add the rules for eastern-arabic digits to "arabic"
input method and provide a customizable variable to select
which kind of digits to input.

How the other arabic input methods work?
