Did you change the keyboard language from system settings to Arabic. You can do so by going to Settings > Time & language in Windows or by going to system preferences > Keyboard > Input sources in MAC. Than switch the language from task bar in windows or from Menu Bar in MAC.

Incase you want to download the Arabic Language Indesign CC version than set the language preference setting in Creative cloud desktop App Preferences - Screenshot for reference
When you now launch InDesign you will get additional functionality which will allow to work in Arabic.
You will find an extended new document dialog, and RTL features in all text related parts and you will get combined fonts possiblity.
