I don't remember any phrase using arabic letters, I'll leave that to the 
canon experts.

But again: All the Klingon we know is only a transcrption of a SPOKEN 
language. Alle the Klingon was basically written for actors, or for 
anyone who wants to speak it. There is no rule or proof for using 
numbers or not use them. using numbers would just be a lazy way to 
abbreviate numbers.

You cannot speak "1", do you?
