The Arabic script is used by the Arabic language spoken in Middle East, North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. The script is also used in the Muslim holy book, the Quran and so is known by many who are not speakers of the Arabic language. The script has been modified for use by other languages in the Middle East and Asia.

The Arabic numerals were borrowed by the Arabs from India and brought to Europe where they were modified and replaced Roman numerals.
