looks that this script on the upper right corner is written in ink, and maybe it suggest which city or country is on this postcard... I will appreciate a help if someone is familiary with the Arabic script/language or maybe can recognize this postcard? Thank you!

I cannot translate the inscription,but your card can be found on a few websites,and seems to depict Medina Pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

Hello.

This is most probably Urdu and not Arabic.

If it were Arabic, the translation would be something like this:

Transliteration: Madina dah shrqi adan k korotchi
This city is east of Aden as Korochi

"Dah" meaning "this" and "k"; meaning "like" or "as", are not used in formal Arabic as such.
"Madina"; translates literally as "city" but can also refer to the proper name "Medina" as in the city name.

would it be possible to see the other side of the card please?
