Have a look at http://www.unifont.org/fontguide/ (see Middle East section)

And let me know if you need help installing fonts.

I never used the KDE font installer, so I'm in the dark there, as it were.

One easy way to install fonts is to find Arabic TrueType fonts (such as these ones: http://www.arabeyes.org/project.php?proj=Khotot), then extract them into the .fonts/ directory in your home directory. Then run fc-cache and they should be ready for use.
