My Arabic text appears fine inside the ".tex" file since i set the I set the encoding into "UTF-8" format, but the moment I run the ".tex" file to produce the ".pdf" file the Arabic text is missing. Everything seems fine just that Arabic text will be missing from the ".pdf" file.
It sounds to me as if you have set your word-processor input to accept 
UTF-8, but have not included any UTF-8 capabilities in your TeX or LaTeX 
package.  Do you even have a Unicode font(set)  suitable for DVI or 
PDFTeX output?
