Hi Enas,
I think you mean Arabic language, yes of course you can, and I think you 
should see the Duali project:

Duali is a simple Arabic spell checker written in Python, Duali will be 
a good start if you are interested in Arabic language, It will be hard 
if you are a newbie but try and see the code you will learn a lot.
you can see a screenshot for Duali running at : 
What you need to learn is Unicode with Python, Duali is a very good example.

Good Luck
