Arabic–Indic Numerals

أرقام هندية

Introduction مُقَدِّمَة
Sometimes called Eastern Arabic numerals, the Arabic-Indic numerals are decimal based numbers used in Arabic and Farsi speaking countries.

They are one of the oldest sets of numerals still in use today, though the "Western Arabic" system used in European languages has become dominant in recent centuries.

Though you can still find historical use of them in North Africa, they are mostly used in Middle Eastern countries including Iran and Afghanistan.
