Apache FOP to PDF Arabic display problem

Can you help me? I am trying to create a PDF by using FOP (0.20.5) with XSL, XML and FO files. I have downloaded the font for Arabic and got the font printing OK to the XML and .fo files. (I use the fo:block font-family=xyz to define the correct font in the xsl file.)

The fonts get garbled in the last phase when I try to print the to the PDF... I use the -c /usr/local/fop/conf/userconfig.xml so that the config file is there but I only get square boxes in the PDF although the XML and FO are shown correctly as Arabic characters..
