Have you tried downloading an arabic keyboard? I've never had the same issue before (Don't speak Arabic unfortunately) but this problem seems to be common with the Cha Cha. I found several forums where people we complaining about the same issue in the stock keyboard. There are a number of custom Arabic keyboards out there, which you can download and instal on your Android phone. Have you given them a look?
