I'm not aware of any way to add a language to a phone (maybe with some of the smart phones it is possible).

Generally speaking, the firmware for a phone ships preconfigured with English and maybe a few other languages common to the region in which the phone was sold. And there is a menu interface in the phone to select the language.

Since it's a Nokia phone, I'd recommend going to the Nokia web site, and you can download the manual for the phone to find information on language settings for the phone.

But if the phone came from outside of the Middle East, it is not likely to have an Arabic option in it.

You might be able to find someone that can install a new firmware version on your phone (or maybe a local phone shop) with the language options that you desire, but that process is not without risks (and outside of any warranties).
