("Do it yourself."
"Yourself" functions like an adverb, not like Arabic needing a preposition.)

Is "needing" used correctly ?

I'm not sure what you're trying to say exactly. Do you mean the situation in English is different than the situation in Arabic because Arabic needs a preposition to express "yourself"?
