You have to go to the top left of the calendar options but read what the arabic says in english at the bottom left of your taskbar. Scroll across the arabic until the taskbar says general settings and click that.
the screen will change to a set of drop down boxes. The first box has the languages, select it and change to english. Now go to the bottom of the page and the save cancel option is written in arabic. Choose the click on the right for save.
The page will refresh and you will have google calendar in english. Now you can fix your settings to how you like them.

Change Google calendar from Arabic to English:
Especially made easy for Non-Arabs living in Arab world!
To change your language settings Arabic to English, please follow these steps:
1. Copy paste the following instructions and take print for easy reference.
2. Click the gear icon at the top left of the Arabic page.
3. From the drop down menu scroll down to the 4th link-إعدادات الأ
4. The next page shows heading as- إعدادات التقويم on top right .
5. Look for the first sub-heading on the right side of the page listed as- اللغة
6. Proceed to the drop down link showing the Arabic - العربية and switch to English.
7. At the bottom of this page, you'll see two buttons. Click the button on the right to save the settings and reset the language to English.
Virgo2012: I was disappointed with the poor response on the web for the problem. Thanks to my Egyptian friend who made it easy for me and for you! Satisfied viewers please leave a comment.

Thanks dear Virgo. Finally it worked for me.
Changing in setting at the top to UK english will not change calendar.
One has to make the change in calendar settings itself, which unfortunately is in arabic.
