Hi Lamia and welcome to the Scribus mailing list,

I'm sorry to dissapoint you, but it doesn't seem to be possible yet --
the support for non latin languagues is planned for Scribus 1.3.6
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/1.3.x_Roadmap#1.3.6 and the Scribus
team has been working on the upcoming 1.3.4 release for the last months.
