I think that the iPad lacks the fonts to display the characters. Please convert the ePub to the PDF format because all the Urdu fonts and characters will then be embedded into PDF making it available for reading on all your devices.

Even if you create custom layout you still need to define the used fonts by the epub. You can do this with the following code:

@font-face {
font-family: Prophecy Script;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: normal;
src:url("Fonts/Prophecy_Script.ttf");
}

Once you complete this, you need to apply it to your book:

p.letter {
    font-family: "Prophecy Script";
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 1em 0 0 0;
    -webkit-hyphens:none;
}

You will also need to define the area with the following handle: <p class="letter">Test</p>. On the other hand, custom fonts need to be enabled in the **com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml**. The line should be like this: **<option name="specified-fonts">true</option>**.
