Default Sudanese (?) crocodile sheathed triple dagger set with Arabic script

Recently acquired a set of triple daggers , tempered steel blades with Arabic (Thuluth ?) script. The handles seem to be horn and the set have definate age....but how old ..I have no idea.

Straight dagger... 15cms blade...26cms overall
curved daggers.. approx 19cms blade.....approx 30 cms overall.

It would be very much appreciated if someone could translate the script for me....pretty please...However, the script isn't to clear in the photos and will try to enhance the script so it can be more easily read, and will post later.

I would also like to repair the missing 'tails' of the scabbard, any suggestions? or should I leave it 'as is' ?

Please comments, suggestions etc gratefully received, thankyou
