Considering this is an IC, you haven't referenced your choosing of green subs in the OP, and still didn't explain it, what's green represent in the Arabic World and Islam?

Consider text + icon mods? At the very least, sublegends on numpad is a MUST HAVE. No F13?

This honestly feels like a rushed IC; case and point deskmat

1. no
2. no - people should have the ability to use the greek kit with this set, too. doing 2 numpads would be too much in my opinion.
3. yes. rushed. 100%. because vendors and everything else jump out of bushes. because 2 deskmats are not finished and I am still brainstorming on those is rushed? the gb is due in AT LEAST 5 months.
4. The sublegend on the I _IS_ correct.

I retracted that sub legend comment guess not fast enough, that was my bad. Ok and Ok, understand numpad concerns, mods are your choice. I just feel like that deskmat is not up to scratch with the rest of the set, henced the rushed comment. I did not comment on vendors, pricing, full kitting at all.

Please add R4:Tilde/GraveAccent/ذ  - this would make possible to fit this key onto 60%/65% ISO layout without relegating it to FN layer (R3:Pipe/Backslash is already present in your kit).
Please consider doubleshot arabic legends - yes, I know, GMK does not do tripleshots so arabic legends would be same color as latins in such case.
BTW: Thanks for icon mods.

I love the idea of an arabic set, but why not make it worthy of its Ďclassicí title and use text + icon with blue sublegends, the way Cherry would have done (and possibly did do) it?

Icon + text, windowed caps, scroll and numlock and possibly R5 are the only changes i would make but those are just personal preference. As far as i am concerned this set is an insta buy.

That said, if you wanna go icon mods, call it Modern Arabic instead. I think it'd be way more fitting, I personally don't really care about the name but I can already see a lot of people here that are complaining about "wrong legends". Either go icon+text, or call it something else.

But thank you for the recommendation.

In one of the chapters in the Quran, the colour green was used to describe the colour of garments and cushions of people in the afterlife. So, green has been associated with prosperity. Historical significance with flags I am not versed, but I am sure this has major influence.

OG ISO-DE and ISO-UK sets used to have icon mods..

pretty much every variant of ISO cherry sets use icon mods because there is no sufficiently elegant way to include text on 1.25u left shift and ISO enter (though there are some minor exceptions). ANSI cherry sets almost always used text + icon, the only notable exception being schneider OEM stuff which was obviously  a random request to their preferences, and even then the enter remained text + icon.
