Adopted and imposed sounds right.

Why do we write in Arabic alphabets was it imposed on us?

The alphabets are not Arabic and it wasn´t imposed on us. The script and alphabete was used by Aramaeans (also known as ''Cananits'') who are th founder. Aramaic was once lingua franca in Near East, Central Asia and NW-India and is still a close relative of Hebrew. Even modern Aramaic is still the same language as Jesus spoke. Achemenids and many other dynasties adoptet it as language of science, art, technology and philosophy which gave birth to all Iranian civilization. It was even in usage in Choresmia, Soghdia and Gandharaa after western Persia was fallen to Arabs. Arabs are bedouins who have adoptet it. Nothing more. That´s also why only Persians are mentioned who modefied the ''Arab'' language and alphabete. Let´s see what the world-famous Ibn Khaldun wrote:

"Thus the founders of grammar were Sibawaih and after him, al-Farisi and Az-Zajjaj. All of them were of Persian descent…they invented rules of (Arabic) grammar…great jurists were Persians… only the Persians engaged in the task of preserving knowledge and writing systematic scholarly works. Thus the truth of the statement of the prophet becomes apparent, 'If learning were suspended in the highest parts of heaven the Persians would attain it"…The intellectual sciences were also the preserve of the Persians, left alone by the Arabs, who did not cultivate them…as was the case with all crafts…This situation continued in the cities as long as the Persians and Persian countries, Iraq, Khorasan and Transoxiana (modern Central Asia), retained their sedentary culture.

Muqaddimah, Translated by Franz Rosenthal (III, pp. 311-15, 271-4 [Arabic]; R.N. Frye (p.91).

''Arabs dominate only of the plains, because they are, by their savage nature, people of pillage and corruption. They pillage everything that they can take without fighting or taking risks, then flee to their refuge in the wilderness, and do not stand and do battle unless in self-defense. So when they encounter any difficulty or obstacle, they leave it alone and look for easier prey. And tribes well-fortified against them on the slopes of the hills escape their corruption and destruction, because they prefer not to climb hills, nor expend effort, nor take risks. Whereas plains, when they can reach them due to lack of protection and weakness of the state, are spoils for them and morsels for them to eat, which they will keep despoiling and raiding and conquering with ease until their people are defeated, then imitate them with mutual conflict and political decline, until their civilization is destroyed. And Allah is capable of their creation, and He is the One, the Victorious, and there is no other lord than Him.'' http://www.al-eman.com/islamlib/viewchp.asp?BID=163&CID=8#s3
