You should be aware that all solutions involving wcstombs and related depend on the locale and the typical encoding might not be what you call 'ascii'.
Actually, what is called ASCII does not contain any Arabic characters whatsoever. Probably, you are referring to a specific codepage that uses ASCII + some Arabic characters?
In that case, it's probably a good idea to set the proper locale before conversion (see Richard MacCutchans post for info), so you get the correct codepage and not, as you probably get with the code given so far, UTF-8 encoding, which means that the text file will contain multiple bytes per character.

For instance, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2190190/wcstombs-character-encoding[^]. Probably something like setlocale( LC_ALL, "ar.1256" ); will do what you need; it should set the codepage to windows 1256 (which is used for arabic) and use the (generic) Arabic locale.

Locales and encoding are a quite complicated issue, so you should be careful and precise when using them. Also, by C++ definition the locale employ system-dependent strings for locale, so if should cater to the platform you are coding for.
