Can you expand upon what you're referencing? [Western] Arabic numerals are what most of the world uses; that is, 0,1,2...9. Are you referring to Eastern Arabic/Hindu numerals instead?

I think Muhammad is referring to the numbers used in the Arabic speaking world - ٠١٢ ٣‎٤٥٦٧٨٩‎ (0 - 9 in our script).

Muhammad, do you mean the file names, or numbers in the documents?

@Andrew Warland yes i mean Numbers in documents

I cannot replicate this. I uploaded a Word document with the number in it, and it opened correctly in Word Online. Is this what you were doing, or was it a different problem?

@Andrew Warland yes that's what i try to fix 
i use Sharepoint 16 with Office online server 16 on premises 

but when i try to upload any file contain Arabic numbers it converted Automatically to English

I'm sorry I don't know why this happens. I wonder if it has something to do with language settings in SharePoint or Office, or somewhere else, and the keyboard settings also. Strange it would change the numbers, not the Arabic letters.
