As pointed out by Peter, this kind of problems is better posted to or filed as a bug to the Emacs bug tracker.  The
person who understands these problems and can help you resolve the
problem or fix the bug, if there is one, does not read this forum.

When you do post there, please provide at least the following

 . what kind of system is that?  GNU/Linux, MS-Windows, other?

 . which fonts are used for displaying Persian?  ("C-u C-x =" will
   show that information)

 . if you type "C-h H", does the Arabic greeting line display
   correctly for you?

 . in the examples of "wrong" display I see special characters (ZWNJ,
   Zero Width Non-Joiner) between several characters -- who inserted
   those, and why?

 . since the way text is displayed depends on what program is used to
   display your mail, and since most of Emacs developers use Emacs for
   that, which you say displays this wrong, please provide screenshots
   with your report, showing both the incorrect display in Emacs and
   the correct one elsewhere, preferably with the same font.

Thank you.
