I know nothing about Xamarin (or Arabic), but you may want to start by looking at these links about Unicode fonts:

https://developer.xamarin.com/recipes/ios/graphics_and_drawing/core_text/draw_unicode_text_with_coretext/
https://developer.xamarin.com/api/property/Java.Lang.Character+UnicodeBlock.Arabic/

The thing to remember is that Arabic is not simple ASCII text, it is Unicode text, so you need to figure out how Xamarin handles that.
