Non-english languages on the Windows platform are a can of worms. The way that will give you only minor head-aches is to learn the way Photoshop handles your Arabic fonts and take it from there, importing from Word is just begging for trouble like you're experiencing.
Unless you are putting in a lot of text, keep your text in one program so you avoid problems like fonts not matching up etc, this even goes for English texts.

Having said that; there must be a way of properly solving your problem, the question you have to ask yourself is, do you need to?

As far as I know, on a PC, the fonts that Word and Photoshop have access to are one in the same. I have a creative workaround that may work for you.

Open your word document. Open Photoshop.

Can you increase the font size of the text in the Word document? Do the edges of the letters appears clean/hard edged? If so, you can capture the image on screen, by hitting 'ALT (and) PRINTSCREEN' on your keyboard.

Go to photoshop and type 'CTRL (and) N' on your keyboard, photoshop will bring up the new file dialog box with the dimentions prefilled with the dimension of the screenshot you just took. Paste the image into the document.

You can then erase the background color with the magic selection tool (this is assuming the letter edges were clean), then size down the text if needed. Since this is only going to be for use on the web, the quality may be ok for your needs.

It's always better to size down, than up.

Good luck,
nlove
