In my answer, I have used the escapes from
http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0600.pdf
in case you want these too
(the complete alphabet showing first, middle, last, and isolated forms for letters is at Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_alphabet):
**
on ajoute au mot &#x0628;&#x064A;&#x062A; qui signifie chambre, les lettres &#x064A;, &#x0643; et &#x0647;, et l'on crit &#x0628;&#x064A;&#x062A;&#x064A;, &#x0628;&#x064A;&#x062A;&#x0643;, et &#x0628;&#x064A;&#x062A&#x0647;.
**
So for
the escapes are:
U+0628 U+064A U+062A
For the three pronoun suffixes the escapes are::
U+064A, U+0643 et U+0647
[My note: the word bayt --
--
actually means maison or house, not chambre or room.]

The escapes/code point numbers:
U+0643;U+0644;U+0645;
is

[note that the letters/characters that represent the k-l-m sounds are ordered as in English!]
U+0643;U+062A;U+0628;
is

U+0645;U+0634;U+0649;
is

Finally
U+0634;U+0627;U+0641;
is

[Another note: shaahad-a is the word I know for witnessed/saw-he:
 
ra'aa-a is the word I know for perceived/saw-he:
 

I am not familiar with the word used in your text, shaaf-a:

-- but my Arabic is very minimal.]

Best,
