    Hi mamdouh,

    Sitefinity is redirecting the requests to the default culture set in the web.config file.  Also, if the browser language is Arabic, then the pages will be open in Arabic.
    Could you take a look at your web.config file and check out the defaultCulture value?


    <localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" persistenceMode="PathPrefix" defaultCulture="en" cultures="en, es, fr, de, bg">  

    To prevent the undesired forward and takes the user to the default culture en ( in the example) without reading the browsers language code you could add one property more as the example demonstrates:

    <localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" autoSetClientLanguage="false" persistenceMode="PathPrefix" defaultCulture="en" cultures="en, es, fr, de, bg">  


    You may find the following KB articles useful:Changing the default site language and Using strict language versions of pages.

    All the best,
