Thaana does not use a script-specific set of digits. Either Latin numerals or the numerals used in Arabic writing can be used. Because the Gregorian and Hijri calendars are both used in the Maldives, some dated documents will contain the Gregorian date written with Latin numerals and Thaana month names, and the Hijri date written with Arabic-script numerals and Thaana month names. In both cases, the numbers are read from left to right but the words are read from right to left.
