I have many Arabic documents and I need the page numbers of the docs in Arabic itself , However after 0365 update all Arabic page numbers are showing in English . How do I change it back to arabic ?

Hm, I've always thought this setting is independent of the language selection. Anyway, to change this go to Insert -> Page number -> Format page numbers. And you might want to check the settings for the default template: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/change-the-normal-template-normal-dotm-06de294b-d216-47f6-a...
