Cards written in Nastaliq font get displayed in Nasx font

I am using Anki (Version ⁨2.1.65 (aa9a734f)⁩, Python 3.9.15 Qt 6.5.0 PyQt 6.5.0) on Debian 12.

When I create cards with the Noto Nastaliq Urdu font, I can type input in Nastaliq when I actually create the card. However, when I study, the same text is displayed in Nasx.
For context: Both are calligraphic hands for the Perso-Arabic script. However, Nasx is commonly used for Arabic, while Nastaliq is used for Urdu/Persian.
Is there a way to tell Anki to use the Noto Nastaliq Urdu font also when displaying the card when studying?

You can customize the font used to display cards in the styling part of the card template editor: Card Templates - Anki Manual
Sometimes it can also help to wrap your cards in any html element and specify a lang attribute, as it can influence how text is displayed: lang - HTML: HyperText Markup Language | MDN
