I also test it in Arial, same thing. The problem is only in IE and Safari.

Thank you for the report. The problem is that there is no backend for reading the OTF features that are essential in Arabic scripts. I would love to implement better support for Arabic script but it will take a lot of work to even get the basic things working. Hopefully will BirdFont get this capability one day but it might take a very long time.
