I have an old system that uses Var-char data type in database to store Arabic names, now the names appear in the database like this "ãíÓÇÁ ÇáãÈíÖíä" but when retrieving the data it appears well.

now I am building a new system using VB.NET how can I read these names to appear in Arabic characters.

I don't know enough about Arabic language support in SQL Server 2005 to be able to suggest a solution, but take a look at this MSDN article - it seems pretty comprehensive: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc295829(v=sql.90).aspx
