I am very confused by this question.

That has nothing to do with the programming language: it has all 
to do with the GUI toolkit you use (lazarus in that case).

If you used lazarus with D instead of Pascal (if it is possible), 
you would have the same limitations in D.

If you use another GUI toolkit in D/Pascal (e.g. GTK3, Qt5, Tk, 
etc.), you will have the limitations of that toolkit, which may 
or may not support Arabic text.

Also I don't understand you saying "it's not its time"; there are 
plenty of GUI programs written in D. :/
