Maltese Arabic (الفابهت گخاربي مالتي)

The Maltese Arabic alphabet was invented by Ethan Hunt. One day he was coming home from church, and thought of one of the messages one of his pastors talked about, which was the story of St. Paul and his arrival at Malta. Then his thoughts traveled abroad, specifically to Malta. Then, of course he started thinking about the Maltese language, and began to wonder if it was possible to construct a fully-vocalized Maltese Arabic alphabet, because it is a Semitic language. Thus, the alphabet was created.
