I am trying to use this function to replace only Arabic numbers in text input:

function parseArabic(){ 
     var yas ="٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩";
     yas = Number(yas.replace(/[٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩]/g, function (d) {
         return d.charCodeAt(0) - 1632;                
         }).replace(/[۰۱۲۳۴۵۶۷۸۹]/g, function (d) { return d.charCodeAt(0) - 1776; })
     );
     alert(yas);
}


The alerted yas is "0123456789" which is great. Now if I use yas ="٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩ g", NaN is alerted . So this function works in case we have only Arabic numbers. So I need a function like this one to replace all Arabic numbers by their values but other characters should stay as they are ...

What I have tried:

I don't wan't to replace each arabic number alone, example: replace(٠ by 0) and
replace (١ by 1) ...

    yas = yas.replace(/[٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩]/g, function (d) { return d.charCodeAt(0) - 1632; })
        .replace(/[۰۱۲۳۴۵۶۷۸۹]/g, function (d) { return d.charCodeAt(0) - 1776; });
