    The pictures are from the first verse in Surah An-Nas

    (Bi Rabi)

    I'm working on a project, when I copy the text from Quran.com [kasrah at the bottom] and paste it into the photoshop project the kasrah goes on top of the letter 'ba'.

    So my question is, is there a difference between the two, in terms of the meaning and linguistics etc.?
    If so, which one is the correct one [obviously Qur'an.com] and can I still use the photoshop picture?

    Any response is appreciated.

    Jazakallah Khair.

    Wa alaikum salaam wa rahmatullah

    Both ways are correct, and there's no difference between them.
    "And thus have We willed you to be a community of the middle way."
    (al-Baqarah: 143)

    Allahumma innaa na'udhu bika min an nushrika bika shai-an na'lamuh; wa nastaghfiruka limaa laa na'lam.

      Jazakallah khairyan akhi, so can I use it?
      Sorry for longing it out, but I think it's an important issue.

        "A person deprives himself of performing Tahajjud by committing sins." - Hasan al Basri

        When you are obedient to Allah do not feel humiliation and do not feel as though you are weak and if the whole world, and trials surround the people , then know, that you are the dearest to Allah and if they feel rich with the dunya then know that you will be content of Allah and if they seek glory by disobeying Allah, know that glory is reached through obedience. Do not feel weakness, emptiness or failure. Don't lose hope and don't be sad. Be with Allah, the Glorified, the Most High. Even if all the calamities in the world befell you. For what is with Allah is greater than what you can imagine.

            Ahh, didn't know that, جزاك الله خيرا

            When a shadda is used on a consonant which also takes a fatḥah /a/, it is written above the shaddah, while if it had a kasrah (a dash below the consonant indicating that it takes a short /i/ as its vowel), the kasrah is written between the consonant and the shaddah, under the shaddah, rather than in its normal place.

              There is no difference in terms of pronunciation.

              But in terms of calligraphy and Arabic writing, in Quranic script the"kasrah" is written under the ba, and in MSA, or "newspaper" script, the kasrah is put on top of the ba under the shaddah
