Hi Rashed -- Yes, absolutely! ArcGIS StoryMaps supports the 30+ languages that ArcGIS Online supports.

The story builder will convert to Arabic if your ArcGIS profile language is set to Arabic. You can also force it to show Arabic by adding ?locale=ar to the URL, but that should be only for testing purposes. If you are writing a story in Arabic, I would recommend updating your profile language in ArcGIS and then return to the story builder.

After trying this, please let us know if you are running into any issues writing stories in Arabic.
