Correct ligature display depends on the font you use. In a quick test of the fonts on my system, only Calibri both showed a ligature and displayed the glyphs.

I think the font you're using actually does have the ligature, but it's on top of the right-hand character.

Unfortunately, whatever font you use, Fusion doesn't know how to correctly render Arabic. There is a python script that renders Arabic correctly, but I haven't had time to look at making it work in Fusion.

Here's the link:

Been there... the only way I found to render Arabic correctly was Word, then export to PDF and import into Photoshop.
