It looks like Arabic writing on it.

Posting size, and weight if you can, would be helpful.

It definitely appears to be Islamic.  The writing is certainly later - e.g. closer to Ottoman than early islamic.

It's a very small coin, about 1.3cm across and weighs almost nothing and very flat and thin.  Feels like some sort of clay material...
