In order to use a Unix command line, you need a keyboard that gives
access to a large subset of ASCII. Therefore, all users of xterm will
be able to type ABCDEF. So I'm really not sure why they would need
such a complex entry method.

But if you insist...

MK> 0x05c7, 0x0627 Arabic_alef ARABIC LETTER ALEF
MK> 0x05c8, 0x0628 Arabic_beh ARABIC LETTER BEH
MK> 0x05c9, 0x0629 Arabic_tehmarbuta ARABIC LETTER TEH MARBUTA
MK> 0x05ca, 0x062a Arabic_teh ARABIC LETTER TEH
MK> 0x05cb, 0x062b Arabic_theh ARABIC LETTER THEH
MK> 0x05cc, 0x062c Arabic_jeem ARABIC LETTER JEEM

I think this should be alif, ba, ta, tha, jim, h.a, i.e. U+0627,
U+0628, U+062A, U+062B, U+062C, U+062D. Do double check, though, I'm
not sure of myself.
