Dear Hans,

Thank you for your reply.

Here is the missing MWE. (I will also try to attach it.)

% mwe
% document is an English translation of Arabic text; all annotations are in
English.
%
% concerning footnotes to Arabic text:
%   numbers in body should use Mashriki numbers (e.g. ٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩), and
appear between parenthesis
%   numbers in footer should use Arabic numbers (e.g. 0123456789), and
without parenthesis
%
% MWE uses dejavu for English and Amiri for and Arabic. Amiri is availble
at https://www.amirifont.org/
