No. Except when adding etc. (just like in English), Persian numbers are
written MSD-first. When I (and any other Persian speaker I know) try to
write something like "I have 12 books", which is "man 12 ketaab daaram" in
Persian, I write it in this fashion:
K 12 NAM
EK 12 NAM
MARAAD BAATEK 12 NAM
This means that Persian is also written MSD-first.
