MkII (read: ConTeXt with pdfTeX) doesn't support typesetting in Arabic
script at all.

And support for XeTeX has always been limited in ConTeXt. So it's not
really strange if the language support is still missing. It can only
work in MkIV (and potentially in XeTeX, but I'm not sure how much
effort would be needed to make it work properly in XeTeX).

So feel free to contribute the translations as Wolfgang suggested.
