I need to design an English translation of a scholarly arabic book. Please suggest typefaces for body copy containing all possible characters for transliteration.

akmal cheema, I am sorry but I do not understand what "transliteration" means in this context. Are we looking for a font that has all the necessary English (Latin) characters and Arabic characters? Or is it a font that has phonetic symbols for Arabic pronunciation? Or something else? Can someone explain this to me?

Also, it might be helpful to offer a little bit of information about the subject of the book, so that readers can suggest an appropriate font.

Thanks Tillman.
Phonetic symbols for Arabic pronunciation is required. Like Gentium Plus typeface covers mostly of them. The subject matter is Islamic Spirituality explained to the seekers of this path.
