Arabic? Looks like Arabic alphabet

Could be Urdu which has a similar alphabet
My grandfather was a great linguist 6 languages he could have told me. He could write in 4 scripts. Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu And English.

It says Sal nou shoma mubarak, read from right to left, which looks like Persian or Urdu for Happy New Year to you. (Disclaimer, I read classical Persian at university many years ago and may be totally wrong)

You’re right! It says happy new year. I read it in Urdu but as it uses the Arabic alphabet it could be any Arabic dialect
