Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve these issues.

Does it happen with the all the Posts & Pages? Please visit Appearance>>Menus and check you have translated the Menus to Arabic or not. If not, sync the menu to Arabic after a backup and make sure the issue is existing or not. Please check this documentation for more details -

If you still have the issues, please try the following steps for tracking the issue.

a) Visit WPML>>Languages>>Language URL format, then choose *Different languages in directories* and check the issue is existing

b) Scroll down to *Footer language switcher* section of WPML>>Languages and add a Footer language switcher. Then make sure you are getting the expected result or not.
