Tab controls in Delphi don't support Unicode...

See for generic unicode information. contains controls that are unicode compatible so these should work, although not every control might be available. has more about Delphi and Unicode.

go to Start->Setting->Control Panel and then "Regional & Language options"
in "Regional & Language options" window goto "Languages" tab and select "install files for complex script and right to left languages..." to enable that and then apply , in this case you need windows installation disk to apply the changes
after that you can easily use Arabic Font
