First of all, congratulations for this achievement!!! It's really important to help Syrian refugees, as well as other people of Arabic origin to learn French/German/Swedish.

Just a little question: Those courses started to be built in October. Now, on the 2nd March (4 months and some days later), 2 of the 3 of them are already in beta and the other one is at 99%. Why did it last only 4 months for them to release in beta, while many other courses from other languages are still on the incubator (and they have been there for many months, or even years!!!). Are their contributors more hard-working than the others, or these courses are fast made but are of low quality? (not many correct answers accepted, less skills and lessons, no tips and notes, etc) I don't speak Arabic, so I can't try them, but I would like to know what happens in the background. Thanks in advance :-)

Generally, courses seem to be a lot faster to make if they are not the first course teaching the language. This course has had the Swedish for English speakers course to borrow from, and it will have helped them that there is an English for Arabic speakers course too.

I don't know any Arabic at all so I have no idea of the quality of the course. I do know however that the course has some extremely dedicated contributors (you can see who they are on their course page).
Everything varies a lot between different courses and every course faces different problems. I recommend following Jitengores weekly incubator updates to get some insight into how this works, here's a link to the latest one: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/13918004
