 One of the oldest standards for Arabic encoding called "​Arabic-1256"​ does not have any code-point for Superscript Alef which is necessary for representing a complete quran text. As a result, some older Arabic fonts do not include Superscript Alef by default. If your font has problem with Superscript Alef, you need to either change your font or update it to a newer version. One of the oldest standards for Arabic encoding called "​Arabic-1256"​ does not have any code-point for Superscript Alef which is necessary for representing a complete quran text.
