Any Arabic search problem is unconnected to shaping. 

Modules are routinely created and stored in a normalised format, user entries, e.g. for search ate equally normalised

Indeed, this would be true for all similar scripts that used glyph shaping.
Not just those in the Arabic/Persian family either.

The fundamental problem has been identified and described. 
We really do need a permanent solution, not an /ad hoc/ workaround.

This is something for the expert programmers in our community to give
attention to.
