I haven't specify the x-default page yet. Instead of that the the baseurl of the website specified with <link rel=alternative> as the default language "Arabic".

Is it dangerous (I may lose PageRank, google indexing or something) if set the baseurl to be considered as the hreflang="x-default" page and let the Arabic language take another url like /ar. Still the baseurl shows Arabic content and still the page identical to /ar.

Change from:

<link rel="alternate" href="https://www.example.com" hreflang="ar"/>
<link rel="alternate" href="https://www.example.com/de" hreflang="de"/>
<link rel="alternate" href="https://www.example.com/en" hreflang="en"/>

To:

<link rel="alternate" href="https://www.example.com" hreflang="x-default"/>
<link rel="alternate" href="https://www.example.com/ar" hreflang="ar"/>
<link rel="alternate" href="https://www.example.com/de" hreflang="de"/>
<link rel="alternate" href="https://www.example.com/en" hreflang="en"/>
