Howdy Ghasem,
Yes, there seems to be a problem with certain fonts and we're currently looking into a fix.  Sorry for the inconvenience this problem is causing, but we are working on a solution.
The boxes you're seeing reflect glyphs missing from your selected font.  This problem seems to be hitting Arabic, Hebrew, and Persian users so far and I would expect Urdu as well.  You should find that fonts from larger font foundaries tend to be okay, such as Myriad Arabic or Ariel Hebrew, which I can verify do work.
