The alternative numbering system to the decimal system used in Iran and
many Arab countries named "abjad" is surely missing. It is based on
an old ordering of the Arabic alphabet, and is considered something like
the equivalent of roman numbering in latin texts. I can provide info on
the numbering system as used in Iran, but I do not anything about the
differences with Arab countries.
