You need to change the encoding for the page used by asp.net:

Have you configured localization in your ASP.NET application? For example, what values are set for Page.UiCulture and Culture attributes of the Page?

Try adding the language in Internet Explorer and see if that works.

Goto Tools -> Internet Options -> Languages and the Arabic language from Saudi Arabia. Close the browser and restart the IE and browse to web app again. SEe if that works. Also, once you add a language make sure that ar-sa is at the very top of the list.

Another thing to try is to check whether codepage attribute is specified in your asp.net page. If not, it should be specified in the Page Declaration as an attribute and it should be set to utf-8.

Also, to achieve the same effect you can place this in your web.config

<globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" />
