I was checking my facebook account (which i do very 7 minutes) and noticed this CK advertisement, when did they start the arabic-english way of writing for ads.

what is this called, when arabic letters are created using english numbers, who is the genius that came up with that?

2 = ء
3 = ع
6 = ط
7 = ح
9 = ص
these are the ones i know
does anyone know them all?

I think it's stupid.
You either write in Arabic or in English. This is just being lazy!
